MARK DOYLE
Mark Doyle is the main man behind Fierce Angel Records. The
compiler of the CDs, A&R for the record label and head-line DJ
at the events across the world.
The numbers make staggering reading; the creator of 3 best-selling
dance brands, a DJ for over 20 years, a radio presenter for over
10 years, compiler of over 80 best-selling albums resulting in over
2.5 million sales plus a phenomenal ear for a hit record with 3
top 10 UK chart records and another 10 top ten club chart hits
under his belt.
His phenomenal career all started back in 1988 when he started
promoting a club night at the now legendary Haven Stables in
Ealing. Another 10 years of DJ’ing in London clubs followed
until Mark found himself working at London’s Jazzfm as a
marketing executive.
After running the radio stations jazz record label for a short period
Mark suggested that the station branch out and market a new label
targeted at clubbers who had grown up during the birth of house.
In 1999 Hed Kandi was created incorporating a record label, a
radio show and international club nights. The early days of Hed
Kandi were not overly glamorous Mark created the name, directed
the artwork, compiled the albums, booked the advertising, performed

at the events and pretty much established the whole label single
handed. At one point when Mark felt the brand needed some Ibiza
exposure he booked and paid for his own flight jumped on a plane
and landed in Ibiza with two boxes of the latest CD.
During Mark’s tenure, Hed Kandi sold millions of albums worldwide
and his unique A&R and marketing vision helped them deliver a
string of Top 40 singles and significant artist album. In addition,
he developed a career as a radio DJ, creating the weekly
Hed Kandi Radio Show broadcast on JAZZFM and then across
the Galaxy network.
Always one to lead from the front, Mark established the Hed Kandi
brand in Ibiza in 2000 with a little help from good friend Jason
Bull. London parties soon followed and their first parties at Rouge
and Pacha saw over 2,000 people turned away every time there
was an event. The branded events then toured the world and set
the standard that has often been imitated and never equaled.
In 2005 with the jazzfm purchased by the Guardian Media Group
Mark decided that the only way to maintain creative control of the
monster he created was to step away and start his own label.
In early 2006 Fierce Angel was created, a completely independent

record label and event company whose sole purpose was to build
on the philosophy and values Mark has introduced to Hed Kandi.
The label has released over 25 compilations including the series
Fierce Disco, Angels Fall, Deeply Fierce and Es Vive. The digital
artist label has released over 20 EP’s, including club hits from The
Bassmonkeys, The Wamdue Project & The Fierce Collective. Fierce
Angel events have taken part all over the world and the radio show
is now broadcast on over 25 stations in over 20 countries.
As if this wasn’t enough Mark also finds time to produce and write
his own material under the guises of Fac15 and The Fierce
Collective. Releases so far include the disco anthem “Haven’t You
Heard” and Twisted By The Pool. In 2012 will see the release of
an all-new Fac15 album and a Fierce Collective album.
Marks DJ style has been honed by over 20 years of experience an
encyclopedic knowledge of dance music and the ability to read a
dance-floor whether it’s in The UK, Australia or Ecuador. His style
is a blend of hands-in the-air party house and slightly tougher
anthemic house.
