LA DJ/producer/beatmaker and record collecting/crate digging fanatic DJ Nu-Mark, who talks about his 35,000 deep collection in the above recently posted video from Fuse TV's Crate Diggers series, will be doing a free live in-store performance Thursday (Feb 28th) at 6pm at Amoeba Hollywood. The producer/turntablist extraordinaire, who many got to know through his membership of now defunct quality hip-hop crew Jurassic 5, will be promoting his new, guest-heavy solo album, Broken Sunlight, which was released in December by Hot Plate Records. At this week's Amoeba in-store Nu-Mark will play his famous "toy set" live as well as sign copies of the new album immediately following the performance. More info on the show here and below is the video for the album track "Tonight" featuring J-Live, M3, and Erica Dee. Buy Broken Sunlight here
