The Drifter

The Drifter is Mark Flynn, an Irish producer, DJ and singer. After an upbringing dabbling in different musical pursuits, from bands and choirs to folk and traditional, a love for electronic music was born out of ventures into Dublin nightlife. He released his first solo EP Lovers on Permanent Vacation in late 2012. It received excellent feedback with James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem calling the EP “really nice, gentle and strong.” His own vocals on the EP caught the attention of some of his peers and resulted in him recording vocals for Jacob Korn, Slow Hands, Erdbeerschnitzel, Good Guy Mikesh & Filburt, and Baikal. Further remixes for Ships and Slow Hands side project Male Madame have made him one to watch. His reputation as a DJ has steadily grown and taken him all over Europe with a DJ style, no matter if he is playing house, techno or disco, that leans towards the hypnotic, melodic and emotive side of electronic music.
