“Om Records releases the second volume of their Sound Design series, focusing on Mark Grant, who has been a resident DJ at Red Dog’s Boom Boom Room here in Chicago for the past six years and going strong.  He has gained much success and attention as a producer at Cajual Records, remixing tracks for Braxton Holmes Glenn Underground and Green Velvet to name a few.  From that platform, he recorded material for Guidance and Sub-Urban and as early with Lil’ Louis, “7 Days of Peace.”


After about four years since his last mix CD, he returns to design a soundtrack full of funky, disco house, acapella vocals, dynamic Latin percussive beats and smooth it out in the end, jaz’soulfully.  A continuous mix of rare and hard-to-find gems, Mark carefully mastered this mix from the opening of “What I Say” by Kaskade to the closing of “Round and Round” by the Pasadenas.  But the real mind food sends your feet moving from the main embodiment of “Supreme Soul Team” by Electrik Soul, “Dancing In Outer Space” by Atmosfear and “Can’t Give You Up” by Milton Jackson.


By the time you read this, the CD will be out on the shelves if not gone.  Along with the release, Om Records presents the Sound Design Tour.  Mark will hit our hometown on Aug. 15, so secure the date.  For more information on Om records, Mark Grant or the tour, please visit the following websites: and”
