Mar Io : Listen To My Heart EP [BRQ127]

“What sticks out while listening to the Listen To My Heart EP is the fact that its creator Mar Io has been in the business for a long time and has mastered the skill of combining a range of influences and styles into very atmospheric tunes. After his previous vinyl EP on the Cologne-based label Form & Terra, these seven new tracks seem more like a mini album than your usual EP and embrace the listener with warm and atmospheric melodies, vocals and lots of groove from start to finish. Mar Io’s sounds are packed with club music history, ranging from acid house references, emerging through the Zweig remix of the title track, up to flashbacks into the more explicit and direct approach for which 90s club tracks are so much loved these days. However, he always manages to weave such influences into his tracks in the most respectful way, not making it sound like an obvious reach out to the retro-crowd but like a loving reminiscence of the glorious past. Not to forget that with ‘Shake Your Body (Give It To Me)’ (Electro Mix) Mar Io underlines that his latest EP is not only made for the dancefloor, even though this is where it surely will cause elevate levels of serotonine pretty soon.”

Hatch : Arcanoid [S27-168]

“A heavy-hitting masterpiece that deserves some recognition. Hatch (aka London’s Eugene Rowlett) could have easily been pulled for a Gescom or Fear Ratio collaboration where large sandblasted electro rhythms smash against acid, funk, hip-hop, and ultra wide basslines.

Eleven tracks spread across old-school breaks and low-end vibrations, Hatch manifests the grit, debris, and robust machine rhythms from start to end. A stream of melodic slivers glide through each piece as thick drums punch through at every angle. Some tracks are faster-paced electro shards such as the aptly titled and powerful ‘Hatch-Hop’ which could easily be its own genre—massive kick-drums, heavy bass thuds, and a menacing groove.

‘Dopple’ drenches the above-mentioned styles into the shadows with a darker surrounding strain. ‘Extroliated’ maneuvers its acid line through snappy percussive rhythms that mid-90s Plastikman fans would have eaten up. Slowing the production to a walking pace, ‘Block’ drives through downtempo corridors where ambient sheets and wind instruments float to the surface while heavyweight drums take center-stage.
There are a few samples strewn in here and there as noted on the excellent ‘We Can Make It’—where wide-angled percussive jolts bust through the acidic undercurrent. Arcanoid is definitely a highlight for 2018, its breaks, bass, 808s, and hatch-hop blend of graffiti electro is a welcomed addition to the digital library. (igloomag.com)”
