D’Marc Cantu has brought us a number of EPs on Créme Organisation’s Jak series, most of which have been dark, stripped down affairs. His previous release on MOS Deep, as 2AM FM with collaborator James T Cotton, is one of my favourite new releases and he continues to impress with his latest solo work.

‘Set Free’ kicks off the EP with a gutteral, flanged out bassline that sounds like an elastic band wrapping itself round your subwoofer. Some luscious pads are slowly released and the track really comes alive. ‘Set Free’ hypnotises you throughout, and the repeated chord progression makes it ebb and flow naturally from one section to another until it devolves and creeps back into itself. I could play this track over and over again.

‘Tonight’ is haunting. The opening synth looms over you and the track kicks in over floating, abstract voices. The rolling toms and snaps of the 808′s snare drum make this track dark, deep and jacking. This track should be listened to in a dark basement with nothing but a strobe light and a smoke machine. A place where sweat drips off the ceiling, down your back and into your shoes.

D’Marc Cantu continues his style of merging the best of detroit with the best of chicago, stripping it down and starting again in what can really be classed as the deepest of deepest house music.
