Known since forever as the king of soulful liquid goodness, DJ Marky has teamed up with fellow South American XRS to create two perfect slices of Brazilian D&B. Oozing with summertime charms from start to finish, the title track blends jazzy musical interludes with some seriously danceable beats. AA side offers a harder hit of dancefloor liquid, bringing chunky bass and sparkling fresh synths into the equation. Always a buy on sight label, Marky's Innerground has done it again - as if you were in any doubt.
Not content with putting up with a winter that's outstaying its welcome, Innerground have begun to piece together a work collective that shows off the sundrenched atmospherics of the Brazilian drum and bass scene. Headed up by DJ Marky and S.P.Y, the first track is of course "Yellow Shoes" but with a twist; adding that classic Calibre warmth to drum and bass' ultimate summer anthem tones down the glare, making it much more accessible to those of us bleached by a thousand months of rain and sleet. "Summer Soul" is far less accommodating however, and as the title suggests, it's a Submorphics-flavoured roll through the bassy summer days and soulful vocals that have become a staple of the Brazilian scene. A perfect excuse to ramp up the heating and crack open some Brahmas.
