DESCRIPTION
 

The aptly-titled 'Raw Materials' sees Marquis Hawkes making a welcome return to the primitive house rhythms for which he became known on his early work for Dixon Avenue Basement Jams. Highly influenced by house originators Ron Hardy, Gene Hunt and Roy Davis Jr, 'Raw Materials' updates the form with modern production techniques whilst preserving its authenticity. The title track eases us in, with dreamy vocals, dusty pads and deep 808 beats. The flip however takes no prisoners with two cuts of raw drum machine clatter and  strained vocal cuts on '‘Ave That', and primal analogue tones on 'Jerk U Later': deadly dance floor destroyers designed to drill straight to your core. Cut & mastered by Matt Colton.
