Mark Kufner, one half of OG house duo Toronto Hustle, has been entertaining Torontonians for over three decades, spinning at some of the city’s most hallowed house music landmarks and releasing classic and deep house cuts in between. Now Mark is launching his very own house music Label, Selections and has released a brand new mix for Glossi Mag. We sat down with him to talk about his new venture, the labels first release, and who he’s listening to these days.
As a house music veteran, what made you start your own label? Why this particular moment?
Why the name ‘Selections’?
What kinds of sounds and artists are you looking to curate on this label? Take us through the process of selecting (if you will) tracks or artists for a release.
Tell us about your first release. How does ‘Nick Holder – Selected Works’ set the tone for the vibe of the label?
Selections is Vinyl only, why was this decision important for you? What is it about Vinyl that has stood the test of time over other audio media?
Who are some DJs and producers, both locally and internationally, that are exciting you these days?
Will we be expecting any Toronto Hustle releases on the label anytime soon?
Your Label launch and record release party is November 29th at Bambi’s, what can we expect?
