Moonshine Heater is the debut release from Marlowe, a new studio and live project from Laurent Bovey (AKA Laps).
The title track is a crisp and melodious piece, the mechanical groove bubbling with dubby FX and heavy synth shots against the hypnotizing melody.
On the flip, My Minds Mine comes in a darker shade, paranoid synth sweeps and a brassy analogue riff weaves around a minimal yet funky drum arrangement. Another great groove from Marlowe, and capturing that classic early Cadenza sound perfectly.
Wrapping up the release is Power Plant, another detailed and precise mood piece, deep and unique, taking its time to build and take effect. Marlowe does not deal with bomb tracks, these are sophisticated tracks for the more discerning music fan.
Marlowe AKA Laurent Bovey has amassed an impressive catalogue of work since the mid-2000s, solo and as part of Digitaline. Releases on Cadenza, Smallville and Cityfox have set the standards for minimal electronic music.
