Out Now: Project E – Denbossa EP

Steeped in the history of house music Ibiza still remains a magical place, influencing all sorts of musical output and artists across all genres. Hence, the Balearic influence abounds on Phoenix Music's writer Mark E’s latest release the ‘Denbossa EP’ as Project E on the classy Golf Channel label, and not just in the track titles Denbossa and Miramola.

Along with occasional production partner Nate Woodcock Mark E has woven a cool breeze and a techno steel into the essence of this EP; Denbossa evokes early Balearic  dancefloor classics, while Miramola hints at earlier newbeat and proto techno influences that permeated through European synth electronic music in the 80s and into the 90s. But don’t be fooled, this EP isn’t old school, it may be a homage to vibes from yore, but the production energy and plain old grooviness is firmly rooted on the floors of now.

Denbossa EP is available on vinyl via Juno and Piccadilly and other good vinyl outlets...
