Mark Flynn AKA The Drifter hails from the picturesque seaside town of Greystones in County Wicklow, Ireland. An extraordinary number of electronic musicians have come from what is a relatively small geographical area with Mark being one of those shining lights. He arrived onto the scene with the beautiful “Lovers EP” in 2012 and although not necessarily as prolific as his peers when it comes to his original output, he makes his mark in many other ways.

Over the last year he started his excellent Cast Adrift Radio show on Dublin Digital Radio which really shows how invested he is in his art. Broadcasting genre-crossing adventures through a myriad of modern music, Cast Adrift is a great insight into how he feels and thinks about music. Production wise, remixes have become something Mark has really grown a talent for. Over the past year alone he has turned in 4 remixes for a variety of imprints, all met with solid and widespread acclaim. Mark also contributed to the Maeve compilation entitled Heavy Rotations Vol 1 – with his track “Three Words Max”, which turned out to be one of the most popular from the collection.

Mark is a founding member of the Maeve label along with close friends Mano Le Tough and Baikal – the imprint, born in Berlin in 2012, has steered a slow and steady course through the years, releasing highly thought out and interesting electronic music. The alchemy of three label heads is in itself what makes the label so special and sees it continue to garner support across the board. So looking to the future, its clear that Mark doesn’t intend on slowing down anytime soon. Original work will see the light of day in 2019 while continuing to tour both solo and with his label mates, bringing Maeve Showcases to all parts of the globe. Marks passion and enthusiasm for what he does is clear, this coupled with his infectious positivity, leaves you wondering what heights the Drifter could reach.
