Roughing up accessible sounds has been a theme throughout @Marquis-Hawkes’ career, and nowhere has it been so clear than on his debut for Houndstooth.

Four upfront house jams, each demonstrating a different side to Hawkes’ production talent, take in jazz-inflected deepness, disco flavours, quirky cyberpop through to futuristic funk. Think Prince meets Neneh Cherry, held hostage by Gene Hunt’s relentless 909 selections.

Despite the variety of influences on display, a contiguous thread is maintained, something also reflected in his DJ sets, their all-encompassing yet coherent nature winning over fans far and wide.

DJ support ranging from Eats Everything, James Zabiela, Ben UFO, Jackmaster, Move D and Craig Richards.

The 12” is mastered & cut to 180g vinyl by Matt Colton.

you can’t get rid of the roots :) disco forever
