The genius behind the UK-based record label now called Fierce Angel and the music brand Hed Kandi that rave partygoers mumble in their sleep celebrated Sinulog in Cebu this year.
The entire Cebu became part of the Biggest Dance Event in Sinulog History! Club Radio 93.1 FM & Ten64 Events brought FIERCE ANGEL LIVE IN CEBU feat. Mark Doyle last Sinulog Saturday, January 16, 2010 at the Mariners Court Convention Center.
WHAT IS FIERCE ANGEL?
Fierce Angel is the new record label and club events business that aims to release only the finest music & host the most fabulous parties. Mark is joined by Nadia Rifaat, a key member of his original Hed Kandi team, Dave Armstrong who produces the radio show and Kate Penny in marketing. Working alongside them are a team of thirteen DJs who spread the Fierce Angel word each and every week at their parties around the globe.
Fierce Angel enjoys a unique relationship with All Around The World, one of the most successful Independent UK labels. This relationship gives them unrivalled access to AATW’s catalogue, its associated labels, as well as Universal. Until the end of 2007 Fierce Angel used exclusive imagery by Jason Brooks. In 2008 Fierce launch a whole new artistic direction. In the words of Jason Jaroslav Cook the new look is fresh, sexy, naughty, & provocative
Fierce Angel events have taken place in a wide variety of venues, such as the Hilton Hotel in the Dominican Republic, where a music-loving and easy on the eye crowd danced the night away in a beautiful Caribbean setting.
In Manila, over 4,000 people enjoyed the sounds of Mark Doyle and Bonnie Bailey live and in Lisbon, the Fierce Angel dancing girls were dressed identically to the latest CD cover girl and ribbon dancers and drag queens entertained the crowd on floor to ceiling scaffolding. Closer to home at the Panama club in Amsterdam, the crowd were treated to a display of heavenly Fierce Angels lounging on clouds above the dancefloor – feeding the lucky clubbers grapes – plus a fully choreographed dance show. Fierce Angel nights in the UK are always wild parties. The Tokyo Disco launch at Sin in London boasted a troupe of classically trained dancing Geisha girls plus clubland’s most fashionable crowd and a truly memorable atmosphere. Long-standing residencies such as Revolution in Reading continue to fire on all cylinders month in month out.
Fierce Angel release a series of unmixed & mixed CD compilations in deluxe packaging, all of which are compiled by Mark Doyle. In its first 2 years of business Fierce Angel has sold over 100,00 CDs in the UK & across the globe. The compilations have gone from strength to strength, with 2008 looking set to be the biggest selling year to date.
