TOKYO507 is a new project from music producer Mark Southeron and singer songwriter and television presenter Hayden Turner.
Together, they have worked on many projects over the past 15years. Both are Sydney born.
Producer ,songwriter and musician Mark brings an eclectic mix of styles to the fore. Mark worked as guitarist ,songwriter and programmer and Hayden, singer/songwriter for Aussie bands , Field of Mars and Ice Jupiter Groove.
Mark's love for producing music began as a teenager listening to Yello records and writing and recording tunes with his school friend Todd Emslie on a Boss D110 drum machine, Korg Poly 800 and a guitar.
Hayden started to front Sydney based synth outfit 'Carnival of Lost Souls' and crossed paths with Mark, which lead to working together for many years .
A theme that is being used more on recent productions is the use of jazzed guitar sounds and silky vocals over smooth electronic dance/lounge beats.
Mark has many label releases, as well as film tracks and a huge list of remixes for established artists and labels, including Ted Mulry, The Atlantics, Stella One Eleven, Gilli Moon, Amuka, and is a producer and remixer with Kult Records NY.
Mark is based in Sydney, Australia and Hayden in London, UK. Hayden records vocals wherever he is travelling in the world and then, from their respective computers, they send arrangements of music and vocals to each other and what comes out is TOKYO507.
They work with many different musicians, including Hylton Mowday,Wolfgang Uhl and Todd Emslie, to add different textures to each track.All tracks are then mixed and mastered by Paul Bryant at Main Street Studios.
