Originally from Scotland, Mark Oliver is presently based in Toronto and his influence on the electronic music industry is a profound one. Coming from a strong musical background, Mark exploded onto the club scene as a DJ in 1987 with his first residency at Tazmanian Ballroom in Toronto. Within a short year, demand for his sound had spread to Miami where he played at
Scratch (South Beach, Miami's very first night devoted to house).
Mark pioneered the rave movement in Canada by being the first DJ to play acid house and techno nights in 1988, as well as co-founding North America's first rave organization, Exodus.
Mark began a mammoth weekly residency at The Guvernment in 1996. For years, he was the only DJ to play the main room and his nine-hour weekly sets are legendary. Now, in his eighteenth year at The Guvernment (incredibly missing only ten nights within this time), Mark has helped propel the club to it's place as one of the top wordwide clubbing destinations.
