From a rapturous dawn, dee-jay Mark Penner, alias Cyclist, was knee-deep in disco. After a gold star cajoling turn in the DFA remix competition for The Rapture’s “How Deep Is Your Love” (alongside fellow Canuk Pat Lok), Cyclist has gone from strength to strength; a successful all-disco residency with A Digital Needle at Toronto’s Beam Me Up has seen the eclectic producer share the spotlight with the likes of Al Kent, Kon, Psychemagik & Eddie C, as well as bolster his production repertoire by working with Goldroom, Drop Out Orchestra, Rogue Vogue & notably vocalist Maiko Watson – a collaboration which has resulted in over a hundred thousand plays on Soundcloud.
Since embarking on his first international tour – an excursion which included stops in Mexico, Spain & France – Cyclist has brought his indie-dance fusing brand of boogie funk to the global stage, with a full slate of North American & European dates to follow in 2014. His own label, MANI/PEDI Records with RAC’s Karl Kling, launched late 2013 to intercontinental kudos, with a deluge of dancefloor-oriented releases to transpire in the year to come.
When not occupied by establishing Beam Me Up as Canada’s premier disco party, Cyclist is consumed by his passion for analogue synths and digging for records – an obsession which, while steeped in the past, influences a sound that is very much modern – a juxtaposition that makes Cyclist the obsessive, disco-discerning tastemaker he is.
