Mark E ‘Night Mover’ (Creative Use 2008)

Mark E is a Birmingham beatmaker who leapt to prominence with his amazing Jisco Records re-edit of ‘Baby I’m Scared Of You’ by Womack & Womack. ‘Scared’ is no average chop-up mind you. The track loops, sprawls, filters and hypnotises across 8-9 minutes before finally dropping into the original song (and taking off a few heads in the process).

‘Night Mover’, on the other hand, sounds like the off-spring of Theo Parrish and J Dilla, which (let’s face it) isn’t too shabby a combo.┬áThere’s no grand finale, no money-shot; just 9 minutes of thumping off-hit bass, crunchy claps, high string and shimmering keys. There IS a bit two thirds in whereby an oscillating synth sound emerges and the bass drops out… And that’s it. In other words, it’s perfection lies not in what it does, but in what it doesn’t do.

For Heads Down, this is Mark E’s high water mark (so far!).
