Release Date: 9th July 2021
I am never happier and more excited than when I get to release a debut EP from an artist. I got sent these demos and immediately knew they were destined for release.
There is a rawness and intensity that sometimes comes with a level of naivety and I can hear that present in these tracks. When you are near the beginning of your production journey I think you inevitably write more with feeling than anything else and I think that is why these tracks work so well.
Mariiin is a dynamite DJ and obviously has a fantastic ear for groove and what will work on the dance floor but I know from experience that being a great DJ doesn’t always translate into being a great producer. Fortunately, in Mariiin’s case it certainly has and in turn we all get the joy of experiencing these tracks. Wonderful news!
We decided to reach for a remix for the B2 and I turned to label stalwart and close friend Guava for the goods. He turned one out in typical Guava style. Twisting and turning your mind as you listen. It’s a wild old ride.
I’ve been sitting on these for a good few months now and I can’t wait to share them with the world. Big shouts to Mariiin for coming through with such a sick first EP. I wish mine had been half as good as this :D
OK enough of my blather. Go and listen to the damn things yourself and decide if you like them, rather than trying to work it out from reading a bloody press release you weirdos.
All four tracks are produced and sculpted for the club. They want big sound systems and dark rooms.
Close your eyes, hold hands and experience transcendental space flight...
