Mark Reeve delivers his 3rd solo EP on Soma in typical hard hitting fashion on The Horn. Mark has become a firm favourite here at Soma and we are pleased to present yet more of his top drawer Techno. Title track The Horn is a perfect opener for the EP and sets this tone firmly on the dance floor.

Fast paced drums keep this track moving while a staccato styled synth hook opens and closes keeping the rhythm of the track on edge. Mark teases with small breaks here and there but the focus of the track is to keep bodies firmly rooted on the floor. Optical is up next and brings a funkier edge to the EP, however, never one to let up, Mark ensures that this track is packed full of energy.

His typical flowing percussion makes way for an almost discordant lead that build slowly releasing eventually with drums crashing all around. As the track powers into the break, Mark slowly brings the tension up by dropping back to the lead, once again releasing the track in full flow with pin-point accuracy. Mark never fails to disappoint when it comes to pure unadulterated Techno designed for the floor and this EP is no different.
