House Nation under a Groove.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: The house music community was left mourning when Mike Huckaby died last year. Although no longer with us his spirit will continue to guide dancefloors and record boxes for some time to come. Here his remix of Skymark gets hi-fidelity, no-expense-spared treatment.

Skymark

Virtual Stars

    Barcelona's king of electronic jazz and synth funk, the mighty Skymark returns to his Modern Sun imprint for a brand new LP inspired by 80's / new era boogie, disco and jazz fusion. Equally in tune with the sunblushed sound of Dam-Funk (or equally Garrett) and the soulful depth of early 90s Larry Heard, Skymark patches his cerebral cortex into a packed synth rack (ARP, Prophet, Moog, Roland and Korgs) and flexes his songwriting, vocal and drum programming skills. After the cinematic sweep of the Dolby styled "Introduction" we get stuck into the groove, getting slick and soulful with the cool keys, smooth vocals and jazzy synth licks of "More Than A Friend" (major Larry Heard influence here) before bounding along to the smooth boogie bump of "This First Special Feeling" (shouts to Legacy FM on a sunday). "Yesterday's Flame" pulls in fusion tonalities and squelching synthesis (James Mason's "I Want Your Love") before "A Better Place For The Next Generation" gives us the perfect blend of club soul and rare groove. The deep, soulful and sweet sounds continue with "Insomnia" and the uptempo, latin tinged house jam "Our Shelter", before "The Center Of My Joy" hits hard for the club boogie crew. Skymark signs off in spectacular fashion with a high flying, uptempo sway through full on jazz fusion brilliance.

    New, retroistic electro-boogie / proto-house here written, performed and produced by synth wizard Skymark on his own Modern Sun Records. Colourful piano chords, pentatonic solos, Prophet synth bass and soulful vocals drizzled in echo mean it's impossible not to throw a few Dam Funk comparisons in there. But don't worry, this ain't no pastiche to the LA funkster - Skymark's just adding to the fruitful cannon of modern funk / bedroom boogie artists and producers currently keeping the scene alive in 2018. Limited to 500 copies, stick it next to your Star Creature, Red Laser and PPU releases to make it feel most at home.
