Various Artists - Mareh Music 001
A1 – Eric ‘Dunks’ Duncan – Nerve Control: Mareh Music kicks the label off with a track entitled “Nerve Control” rocking a very old school almost 80’s soundtrack kind of thing with its filtered bassline that really jacks the track along. Percussion again touching the retro buttons here that hold up the various synth noodles and oscillating sounds - all together put this jam is well and truly in the dance floor category!
B1 – Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco – Disco De Chocolate: The flip side of the EP is a more subtle affair, beats that chug along firmly and little dub stabs that lift the track skywards working beautifully with the bass snippets. Real world instrument sounds are sprinkled throughout, vox samples jumping out of the track adding a random quality to the overall vibe of this track, definitely a funky little number for the heads.
A great debut EP from Mareh Music that really offers two different styles on one EP which in some ways is daring and can only be commended. Both tracks would have people moving on dance floors at different times of an evening but whilst doing this retaining quality that is well worth a listen.
