Dig Deep Recommends: Mark E - Product Of Industry LP (Spectral Sound)

At the forefront of the nu-disco scene from the off, Mark E's 2nd artist album ' Product Of Industry' delivers 9 tracks of robotic house grooves that sound phenomenal on a loud PA.

The LP opens with the haunting and trademark sounds of Kultra Kafe, before dropping into the promising bassline led Persia. There's the deep bliss that is Being Hiding, staggering rhythms of Eganix and the stop you in your trax Image.

The initial stand out track for me is the Detroit-esque Bog Dance with it's dirty acid build up, whilst elsewhere the hypnotic Leaving Osaka and Myth Of Tomorrow creep up on you, slowly sucking you in.  When Dig Deep does house music we do it like this.

 Product Of Industry is released on 28th April on Vinyl & CD from all good record shops.
