Toronto's Jungle/D&B and Bass Music ambassador returns to the label he co founded to deliver this exclusive FREE ep featuring some previously unavailable excursions into Garage, Bass, and Sub Soca fusion territory.
"Cold Sound" is a vicious dance floor weapon, combining skittering Garage 2 step with cinematic Grime synths and a monstrous Dread bass line. The murky strings and atmospherics create a sinister tension that never lets go throughout the whole track, twisting and turning all the way while the ten tonne Jungle bass shakes the ceiling, walls and floor of any club.
"Beyond Next" is a perfect example of the kind of raw dance floor experimentation Marcus Visionary uniquely crafts during late night studio sessions when he explores his varied influences and tastes in electronic music. Jungle at 134 beats per minute is the only way to describe this track, balancing equal parts Acid, Techno, Tribal and Bashment into a potent speaker rattling blend.
"Love Me" was previously available only as a very limited download via soundcloud. Marcus expertly combines Garage, Soul, Bass and his signature Sub Soca together at 140 bpm. This one has been requested for months.
On "Ambush" (Child of Reinforced mix) Marcus creates his own ode to the post Reinforced era Broken Beat of innovators 4 Hero and Bugz In The Attic. Combining the relentless stomp of Sub Soca with frenetic Afro beats and pulsing sub bass, "Ambush" reflects Visionary's insistence on referencing and adding his own flavor to a style rather than out right cloning it.
"Tek Awf Summin" (Marcus Visionary Bare Foot refix), is another very limited soundcloud download made re-available by popular demand. Marcus creates a carnival inspired monster out of Blacker Tek's dancehall party starter.
