||As a member of the critically acclaimed, gold-selling Hip-Hop outfit, Jurassic 5, DJ Nu-Mark graced the group with precision scratching
and cutting-edge production. Best known for spearheading the raw anthem ?What?s Golden? such creativity only hinted at the visionary
songs and styles Nu-Mark has explored since Jurassic 5?s breakup in 2006.
Nu-Mark introduced himself as a solo artist in 2004 with Blend Crafters, an instrumental album created in the spirit of allowing beats to speak for themselves and Hands On, a mix cd that featured MCs rhyming in different languages from around the world. Most significantly, after more than three years of brainstorming, experimenting and collaborating, he has finished his debut solo album Broken Sunlight, which reveals his influences and innovations into a jaw dropping collection of heart felt 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? Nu-Mark explains.
?And 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 difficult times.?
Broken Sunlight also mirrors the marketing behind the album. Instead of releasing all of the songs at once, Nu-Mark plans to release two songs per month for seven months. ?At the end of the cycle, I?m going to release the full album with instrumentals, acappelas, and a documentary style DVD of collaborations in the studio and on the road.?
