Marquis Hawkes, Cera Alba – Ancient Gods Ep [Misfit Music]

Misfit Music returns after the initial success of their first release from label honcho montel. For the second release, London based Cera Alba delivers 2 heavy weight slices of peak time House music. 'Apollo' and 'Zeus' are prime examples of how Cera Alba's sound has developed over the past few years. Stripped back warehouse style House music come Techno. Lead track 'Apollo' doesn't mess about. The infectious groove and seductive vocal sample lure you deeper into the track, til you're hit with a proper uplifting breakdown. Building and building until you're dropped heavily back into the groove.
The supporting track 'Zeus' is a different beast. Dark & twisted atmospheric synth stabs and pads drive the track into top gear. This one is clearly designed for big dark rooms, with nothing more than a strobe and smoke machine.
Aus Music stalwart, Marquis Hawkes has been drafted in for remix duties. Taking us on 2 completely different journeys. His main remix keeps all the peak time vibes of the original, while featuring his own unique twist. Then his 'House It Up' mix sends us straight to Baltimore for an exhilarating organ led slice of old skool Deep House, reminiscent of the early Basement Boys sound.
montel & SB are clearly on a mission with their new Misfit Music label project. Showcasing the finest underground House & Techno sounds with a diverse roster of talent!
