DJ Nu-Mark performs Toy Show in Golden

DJ Nu-Mark, from the legendary Jurassic 5, is coming to the Golden Civic Centre on Saturday Dec. 8.

Best known for their anthem “What’s Golden,” Nu-Mark added precision production, and cutting edge stage routines to Jurassic 5.

Beginning DJing in Los Angeles at the age of 13, Nu-Mark has amassed a collection of more than 35,000 records, and has refined his production skill and performance to the point where he is widely recognized as one of the key figures in DJ culture.

With Jurassic 5 he has toured extensively, and appeared on many TC shows including David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson.

Two years before Jurassic 5’s 2006 breakup, Nu-Mark introduced himself as a solo artist with Blend Crafters, an instrumental album created in the spirit of allowing beats to speak for themselves. He also released Hands On, a mix CD that featured MCs rhyming in different languages from around the world.

Today Nu-Mark experiments with children’s music toys and constructs full DJ sets around toys most people dispose of by the time their kids are old enough to read. He has toured the world, remixed songs for Nas and Damian Marley, created songs for Saturday Night Live’s Lonely Island, and after more than three years of brainstorming, experimenting and collaborating, he has finished his debut solo album.

Broken Sunlight reveals his influences and innovations into a jaw-dropping collection of heartfelt music.

“A lot of things in my life were broken, my group broke up, my long term relationship broke up, the music industry and economy seemed to be broken so It was time for me to take a break,” said Nu-Mark. “That’s where the title of the record stems from. It’s not so much I’m broken. I’m moving towards the sunlight these days. It’s more like a tale of perseverance and forging ahead through tough times.”

Wassabi Collective, a five-piece funk band, will be opening for DJ Nu-Mark at the Golden Delicious show. The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are on sale now at Plain Wayne and Jane, Jita’s Cafe, and the Golden Taps.
