A man of many parts Mark Williams aka Slave/Logg Cabin etc has touched on and triumphed in most areas of the media during a career that has spanned the best part of three decades. Born in California and raised in Aotearoa Mark first emerged in the public eye as the Slavish half of proto hip hop duo MC OJ & Rhythm Slave. With a slew of releases on the Southside label and pioneering shows up and down the country they were never your typical rappers. Transitioning from youthful energy overload to a more considered politicised approach they developed into Joint Force in combination with long time compadre DLT. Ready and able to MC at a moments notice and never far from a mic Slave found his eventual ideal musical home with Welli troubadours Fat Freddys Drop carving out a position as their much celebrated hype man/tour MC since 2006. As well as providing the live lyrical fire and crowd incentivising for FFD Mark has also warmed the stage up for them all over the world as a selector. Most weekends youll find Slave raising the roof and stirring the dancefloor around Auckland and beyond when hes not doing that you would be well advised to check the radio for his loggarhythmic largesse. Building his chops in the 90s on 95bFMs True School Hip Hop Show and Drive as well as contributing to the early momentum of Base FM and after the past 8 years holding down the Logg Cabin radio show on George FM the Loggcabin has now returned to the mighty 95 BFM sundays 2 till 4 pm. Safe to say Slave has spread his audio amor far and wide on the airwaves. Alongside countless TV and Radio commercials and campaigns Mark has been a constant presence on the airwaves making him one of the countrys most recognisable and trusted voices. On the small screen with the Mo Show Slave and crew took New Zealand out to the world and returned with an award winning riot of interviews sketches and thoroughly anarchic TV – the likes of which will probably never be seen again. As well as appearing on a multitude of TV shows and feature films invariably cast as the bad guy he has also made waves behind the camera most notably directing Fat Freddys legendary Wandering Eye clip which won Best Music Video at the 2006 Vodafone NZ Music Awards. Keeping all of the above bubbling alongside presenting his Red Bull Logg Cabin Radio interview podcast and most importantly being a full time proud Dad and family man is serious 24/7 action. Nonetheless Mark is currently expanding his operations building his own voicing/podcasting studio as well as initiating a brand new website. Its a lot for one man let alone one cast as a Slave and a Logg – yet somehow Mark keeps all those balls juggling and that fire keeps on burning bright long may it do so.
