Dorian Mark Elliott has been DJing professionally since 1996, and has played at numerous clubs and radio stations across London, Birmingham, the West and East of England.  Originally from Oxford, he began his career as a technical operator for Bristol's commercial radio station GWRFM in 1991 at the tender age of 17. He worked behind the scenes for several years before moving to a twice weekly on-air slot on Birmingham's Choice FM in 1996, having been brought to the attention of the station's programme controller Neil Greenslade.  Then, under the auspices of radio programming guru Paul Chantler, he quickly progressed to gain weekly shows on Essex FM and the newly launched Vibe FM in East Anglia, starting both in 1997.  His now famous weekly resident show on Saturday nights on Essex FM is still going strong, having recently celebrated its milestone 10th birthday in March 2007.

His interest in mixing had been inspired by numerous trips to The Fridge and Trade clubs in London, and having deluged The Fridge with demo tapes, he was finally given a chance to realise his dream by taking up residency at The Fridge Bar in 1997.  This then led to many other events, including a weekly residency at The Fridge's main Saturday night Love Muscle between Feb 98 and Oct 99 and again between Mar 02 and Apr 03 (and as the night's main DJ for most of 1999).  Then followed a residency at Candy Flip/Heresy Bristol in 1999, and a chance to do the world famous Trade Test Lounge in Feb 2000.  In 2001 he joined the regular DJ line up at one of Birmingham's biggest clubs, Nightingale Club, and has appeared there monthly ever since.

Mark has also done some international touring in his career, including playing in Durban, South Africa on New Year's Eve 2000.

Other notable recent appearances include DJing at the Summer and Christmas parties at the world famous ultra exclusive Soho House in London's West End since July 2003.

Mark is a versatile DJ and is capable of spinning a variety of musical styles. For his shows on Essex FM and Vibe FM, and for his appearances at the Fridge, he plays commercial/uplifting house. For his show on Galaxy 102.2 Birmingham, his residency at The Nightingale and his appearances at Trade and Candy Flip he plays a mixture of funky disco house and harder more progressive house.
