We’ll never get tired of Rekids, their wide range of releases makes them one of the best labels in the circuit, best of all is their special taste when it comes to picking music. Now the turn to make an appearance in the label is for the UK techno legend Mark Broom. This is to announce his upcoming full LP in July.
Before, and to warm up the ambience providing a cohesive and captivating taste of the LP to follow in July, the man recently released his ‘Fast Fünfzig EP’, a marvelous piece containing four original tracks. The EP drops on Rekids in Vinyl and Digital formats on June 18th, 2021. Although not with the usual techno sound that Mark Broom has us used to, the release brings out the same high level of musical production, bringing on deeper and progressive intricate sounds. We highly recommend it. Full details below.
Mark Broom’s mammoth discography shows an artist who has put in the hours, boasting appearances on legendary imprints such as Robert Hood’s M-Plant, Warp Records, Pure Plastic, Bpitch Control, and of course Rekids. Alongside his solo work, his collaborations are an equal tour-de-force, with groups such as The Fear Ratio with James Ruskin counted as fan favourites.
Here though, Broom takes the reigns solo, drawing on decades worth of experience for a 12” of mind-altering cuts for one of electronic music’s most vital labels.
Tracks description.Lead track ‘Fingers’ sees the British DJ/producer toying with rubbery basslines, glistening pads, and chunky percussion to deliver an irresistibly buoyant house track. ‘Slow’ follows suit, bringing another dose of deep low end next to eerie leads and shining synthesis.
On the flip, Broom enters electro-tinged territory on ‘Wild Style’, tying unruly machines together with vocal chops over a staggered, off-kilter drum pattern. Taking the B2 spot, ‘Facteur’ sees a reflective touch to the EP as emotive progressions unfurl under robust, mechanical hits, providing a cohesive and captivating taste of the LP to follow in July.
