The Drifter

Maeve | Permanent Vacation | Based in Berlin Germany


The Drifter is Mark Flynn, an Irish producer, DJ and singer. He releases music on the labels Maeve and Permanent Vacation. His productions and DJ sets lean towards the hypnotic, melodic and emotive side of electronic music. His productions have seen him garner much attention this year with well received EP’s on both Maeve and Permanent Vacation, as well as his track, “We See Us” featured on Permanent Vacation’s “If This Is House Give Me Your Money Back” compilation. This progress is hardly surprising with people like James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem calling his 2012 debut E.P “really nice, gentle and strong.”

He runs the record label Maeve together with his two close friends, Mano Le Tough and Baikal. The label has quickly become one of the most exciting imprints around, not only releasing music from its founding members but also enlisting the skills of friends Matthew Dekay, Ripperton and Dixon to contribute to its success. Label showcases have become high in demand, with a summer tour that saw Maeve host parties at El Monasterio Barcelona, Trouw Amsterdam and Space Ibiza among others. More showcases are scheduled for the coming months at Berghain/Panorama Bar and BPM Festival.

With a quickly growing DJ schedule, 2014 has seen the Drifter play across Europe and beyond in the some of the world’s best clubs with his tracks becoming an ever more present feature in DJ sets from the likes of Dixon, Ame, and Tale of Us.
