Well, the lads at Inner City Dance are at it again. A relentless approach to the digital format, ICD keeps their string of quality releases with Marcus Visionary's latest teaser.
While at times veering away from the 174 bpm, this project returns to the roots and culture of Jungle. And it does it well.
Veteran local hero and worldwide favorite Marcus keeps the dancefloor in check. Blending lovers rock with drum n bass, sampling the immortal Bob Marley on the bonus track now available for free (Or whichever price you would like to pay. Support good music!) right here
We have been fans of Marcus and Lush for years, they are corner stones in the foundation this city so proudly stands on. Whether you listen to many different genres of Electronic Music, or only chin stroke to your particular flavor of moody deep tech broken beat minimal whatever, we are all indebted to people like them.
I'll put it bluntly, if it wasn't for them, and others like them, the "EDM" (fuck) popularity we enjoy in Toronto today would not be happening.
And Inner City Dance takes it a step further. Blurring genres and tempos for the ultimate goal of powerful music that will stand the test of time.
If you are a fan of ANY style, flavor or brand of Electronic Music, you owe it to yourself to seek out their back catalogue, curated and hand picked by 2 guys who have spent more time in front of a dancefloor than anyone else in the city. And keep your eyes open for what's coming next.
Marcus Visionary's SOUNDMAN EP is set to drop in November. Eyes on http://innercitydance.bandcamp.com/
