Boomkat Product Review:
Twenty one years into a scene-defining career arc, Marcus Intalex presents his debut album, '21'. From beginnings in Manchester's House and rave scene Marcus has recorded for many of the top D&B labels, including his own Soul:r and Revolve:r imprints, who also introduced important early works from Instra:mental, Martyn and Calibre. The album spans 13 tracks including one bonus digital cut plus a mixtape reducing the whole thing to a 45 minute DJ mix. Highlights have to be the tweaking electro-stepper 'Strangeways', the tropical acidic swing of 'From The Ashes', the Instra:mental like electro of 'Dusk' or the sub-loaded finesse of 'Paulista Dub'.
