About Mark Barrott
U.K. DJ, producer, and electronic musician Mark Barrott achieved enormous acclaim throughout the 1990s for his excursions into ambient, house, and drum'n'bass as Future Loop Foundation, among other monikers. Barrott worked in various fields of electronic music from rave-friendly techno tracks to more abstract sounds before a move to the tropical climes of Ibiza in the late 2000s inspired him to make more lush, organic sounds under his own name. Barrott began the International Feel label in 2009 as an outlet for some of his new adventures into contemporary house, disco, and other forms of electronic sounds. Various mixes and limited-run 12"s paved the way for the 2014 release of Sketches from an Island, a collection of warm, breezy downtempo tracks inspired by Barrott's idyllic surroundings. Expanding on his Balearic meditations, he followed up two years later with the equally breezy Sketches from an Island, Vol. 2. ~ Fred Thomas
