Mark Potsic (DJ Nu-Mark) formerly of Jurassic 5 has no shortage of talent, energy, and creativity. As shown in this six minute “toy” set, Nu-Mark uses toys and some Macgyver-ness to create a unique sound that forces people to see everyday things in a different light. My favorite is at 3:05 when he takes a rubber band to the tone arm of his Technics SL-1200 to create an obscure string instrument.
From DJ Nu-Mark:
“I started playing with toys in my dj solos with J5 and over the years my collection grew. This is the official toy set video, shot on stage by my cousin Buzz, from performances in Korea, China, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and the Philippines. I’m going to be including a longer version with the release of the Broken Sunlight CD/DVD and a coffee table, photo book of all the toys and their stories. In the meantime, to celebrate the launch of my new site, here is a little taste.”
