It’s been a while since the last release by Mark August on Connaisseur, but now he’s back with an extraordinary one. Two tracks, both like a fairytale of a country far, far away. A fable, with mystic and mysterious animals and creatures, might best describe what Mark had in mind while working on the tracks.
The Wasps From Tunisia And The Silver Piggy – The main track on this
release is an uncommon piece of music. It starts moody and with a stoic
pumping beat, yet also a somehow laidback feeling. It then unexpectedly and surprisingly builds up to a monster of a track, working manically towards its climax. Then however, over the length of the track, it completely transforms again, coming back to its beginning, as though nothing had ever happened.
Scorpion’s Groove is a deep and dubby affaire. Many themes subtly work
against each other, creating a very special atmosphere in their mergence. Not a peaktime track, but excellent for opening a set.
