Review: With the On The Prowl Party Breaks series, Runaway have become masters at blurring the boundaries between re-edits, remixes and original material. It's little surprise, then, to find that this four-tracker from Runaway man Marcos Cabral follows a similar approach. Those familiar with his previous solo release on OTP Party Breaks will immediately feel at home. While this time round there's more obvious electrofunk and disco influences (notably on "Save The Day" and "Burning Up"), the overriding feel is dubby, sparse and 'floor-friendly - like a drunken late night trip into the seedy underbelly of mid '80s NYC club culture.

Review: This second instalment of Runaway man Marcos Cabral's Hamilton Dance Records series of edits-not-edits is every bit as essential as the first. But where that casually flitted between proto-house, early garage and Italo-dance, this second volume smoothly moves between Guerilla-era dub house, jackin' anthems (see the thrilling "Get Get Get") and house-proud piano jams. As ever with Cabral, there's a distinct New York feel to proceedings; even the EP's fluffier moments - check the dubbed-out New Jersey garage of "Better Think Again" or the swirling Italian house of "Sym Phon" - feel like they've been designed to rock illicit Williamsburg house parties.

Review: The OTP Party Breaks series rarely disappoints, and this four tracker from Runaway man Marcos Cabral is no exception. It showcases a number of tasty reworks of forgotten proto-house, deep house and electronic disco gems, offering retro grooves perfectly suited to contemporary dancefloors. The real killer is "Better Think Twice", a delightful vocal excursion that bears all the hallmarks of the Paradise Garage circa 1988. "Just Like Good Love" is a long, loping house tweak of a simmering soul nugget, while "Do To Me" and "Hot Stop" pit clattering syn-drums and nasty synth bass against all manner of classic melodies and proto-house synths.

Review: On the Prowl launch their new sub label with help from legendary New York house producer, Marcos Cabral. "OTP Party Breaks Volume 1", which also features collaboration between Cabral and Shux, drops two tracks of the warm, disco flavoured, deep house that is currently making a storm over in New York City.
This first release is poised to set the tone of the whole imprint, who are expected to put out distinctly NY flavoured records from the city's favourite artists and producers. Marcos Cabral from Runaway certainly fits the bill, having also released on the likes of DFA, I'm A Cliche, Muke and Rekids, he is a true legend on the city's house scene. He collaborates with Chinatown Records partner Brennan Green on the EP's opening track, "Lifetime Groove," an epic twelve minute journey through laid back and groovy disco house. It has a classic feel right from the start with a retro bassline but with Balearic overtones and a dubby, feel good sentiment.
On the flip, Cabral lays his hand to Lil Louis' classic garage house track "Club Lonely." It is a simple rework, using straight forward loops and samples. The chord stabs keep the club vibes strong as repetitive saxophone flurries continue to build the tension. Bringing the 90s anthem up to date, Cabral gets a mainstay of Runaway's set on record at long last.
Marcos Cabral brings us a slice of classic New York house on "OTP Party Breaks." By merging the old sounds of the city with the new, he has managed to make a lasting impression in the now. This will get everyone up on their feet.
