TRADEMARK – EARTH EP – Released: May 2010 – IA2.3
May 2010 sees the 3rd release from London based Intelligent Audio… and the 2nd double release from Trademark. IA1 hosts a collection of 4 dancefloor burners while IA2 stays with more experimental territory featuring a variety of styles from jazz to broken beat and much more.
First is Wild Seasons – fluttering melodic rhodes, a deep funky analogue bassline, ruff broken beats and spacey stabs combine to create a classic backroom burner.
The Nod – dirty double bass, tight jazzy drums, floating keys, and Claire Manners jamming a sexy saxophone into the mix.
Track 3 is Loki’s Lament – a laid back jazzy hip hop workout featuring intricate scratching and cuts by SMD and vocals by MC Manic.
Erewhon completes this EP with a delicate piano led jazz groove that wouldnt be out of place in Ronnie Scotts. Exquisite.
Laurent Garnier – Definitely into this. Will present it on the radio.
Phat Phil Cooper – Oh God, I am in heaven… PROPER bloody music… LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT… Hard to pick one fave track though!!! Please tell Trademark they have a 16stone, beared, Welsh male groupie!!!! LOL

henry cullen / dave the drummer – I really like it ! …as a relaxing listen it’s really bluesy and jazzy just up my ninja tunes street. so many thanks for the tracks and keep it up very cool!
Leigh Morgan, Urban Torque – cool after hours vibes, good listen
Andrew Duke : Cognition Audioworks – Superb styles.
Justin Berman : house fm/sud up recordings – a great collection of tracks, obviously listening music rather than straight up dj tools, but I think that these are perfect for sitting at home in a smoky room with the lights down low. The Nod is brilliant, reminds me of the sort of track that you might hear on a Mushroom Jazz tape, great stuff Justin
