Mark Reeve | Phobia/Fear
[Soma354d] Released : 26.11.12
Mark Reeve follows up his hugely successful debut on Soma with two hard hitting techno tracks Phobia & Fear.
Phobia is first off the mark and sets the tone of the EP perfectly. Firing off with its dark, rolling beat and deep bassline it immediately propels itself skywards. Synth stabs creep in while the tracks loops out, ideal for heads down dance floor action. Reeve effortlessly creates a sense of tension going into the break as the tracks punches back in with brute force, never seeming to take its foot off the pedal, continuing to punish till the end.
Fear drops next with solid drums and deep heavy sub bass accompanied by eerie samples that seem to force their way from the dark recesses of the track. A resonating lead pushes this track forward, growling as a pitched down vocal tears through. Mark utilises each element of the track to devastating effect creating a deep, evolving techno monster.
Mark Reeve continues to excite with his depth of production and shows with this EP that he has an expertly developed and unique sound.
