Now living on Hawaii, veteran DJ/producer Marasco earned his stripes working with the likes of Tuccillo and Halo (H-Foundation). The latter is a bit of a clue as to what to expect from this four-tracker for seasoned label Nordic Trax. Both the tech-tinged "What" and looser "Need" (which comes complete with a superb vocal sample) recall the deep, shuffling, hypnotic vibe of early 2000s "heads-down" deep house (think Onionz, Hipp-E, H-Foundation etc.). The remixes are pretty sound, too, with the eyes-closed hustle of "Need (Dub)" just edging out Brendon Collins' jazz-flecked tweak of "What".
