Mark J Turner
Mark left his city job in 2006 to follow his passion of music, launching Wrong Planet later that year. A boutique production music library and publishing company with a growing catalogue that’s discovering and signing new music every week. Mark decided he wanted to give some of these artists commercial exposure, and so in 2012 Artillery Recordings was formed.
Outside of managing Artillery and Wrong Planet, Mark is an international producer, nominated at the MTV Europe Music Awards for his work with Portuguese electro rock artist, Slimmy. His music has featured on both television and radio, and can be regularly heard on the BBC, ESPN and FOX.
Under his Players Please moniker, Mark released music through Eye Industries (home to Russ Chimes, Alan Braxe, Michael Gray). His ‘Feels Like Fire’ record sampled Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘Power of Love’, the first time the band had officially cleared a sample in over 10 years.
He’s had plays on BBC Radio One, Kiss, Ministry of Sound Radio, as well as support from Pop Justice, Pete Tong, Sister Bliss, Steve Aoki, Steve Smart and Eddy Temple-Morris.
