Size matters. A BOC production involves a lot of people: around  200 people, and up to 500 audience members. I keep finding people I know – generally adventurous music types – who are deeply committed to BOC. They sing in the chorus, or build sets, or dj at afterparties. You read that right – afterparties. For an Opera company. The Dj in question last time out was Marc Reck. I find that impressive and very cool. – Robin Valk – Radio To Go post on Birmingham Opera

“As the 5 O’clock finish line got closer and closer, co-curator Marc Reck stepped up to the decks to provide a perfect concluding set, bringing the curtain to a close with the sublime lyrics “daylight come and we wanna go home” echoing around the venue. An idyllic outro, if not somewhat ironic, as it was clear that no one was yet ready to become bed bound.

“Fuckin Awesome Mix Man!! Thanks for posting this! – Breaks Fiend on Fear & Love Mix 2006

“It really is a piece of work Marc.. a journey of contrasting styles and musical vigour that’s perfectly mixed, brilliantly chosen and superbly thought out. The ppl I did play it to, once I got home, agreed – they’ve been privvy so far to a completely different ‘Marc Reck’ and this, as it did me, hit them by storm. But, what a journey, all tied in at the end by that amazing Sigur Ross track which brings the whole ‘music’ experience to a huge close and leaves you somewhat in awe. I listened to it with Jack as we drove thru all weathers down the M54. It isn’t that it “just” makes good driving music, even though the double edge thing was that while physically travelling on one journey I was listening simultaneously to another journey. Jack leant forward at one point and turned up the bass and said “God yes, this is it this is” (to get a reaction out of him is pretty amazing and thats the first time I’ve seen him actually moved by what he was hearing). After that, I must’ve listened to it another 5 times during the course of the weekend.. in all sorts of different states. Its pretty much had the same affect on everyone.. so it can’t be just me reading things into it. Everytime I finished listening to it, someone came into the house asking to play it again. Even Valentino Canziani has never been played in my living room that much and consecutively too. Surly that speaks volumes about its quality. …Your best work yet mate ;)” – Sarah Wilkinson (Graphic Designer/Positive News) on Fear & Love Mix 2006

“One of the things you notice about Marc is his infectious joy in playing great tunes. Bouncing around behind the decks, completely at home and willing the crowd on, he is so obviously loving being there that you can’t help but love it too. Always inclusive with an open, warm, cheeky and genuine smile, you instantly know his love for the music and want to join him celebrating life, dancing and quality breaks” – Richard Batsford (Metro)  – 2006

“Marc Reck, a prominent breaks DJ and promoter has been confirmed to appear as part of performance event “Like Fxck”. Marc is no stranger to overwhelming reactions from the dance floor through a substantial history of appearances and collaborations at Birmingham clubs including Inter-course, Drop Beats Not Bombs and his current residency at Rockfall. His enthusiasm for embracing the latest technology whilst collaborating with live musicians will make his contribution to Like Fxck a fitting celebratory end to an evening that has been conceived as a new approach to the live entertainment format” – Rob Horrocks – Press Release 2005
