Marcus Woods

Self Portrait

[Burner]

With his debut LP, Dubliner Marcus Woods, confirms his reputation as a young producer of rare nous; acutely aware of the tropes of house and techno (as evidenced on tracks like Technicolor) but just as unconcerned with pandering to them.

In fact, tracks like Temporary Onism more call to mind the strung out bedroom melancholia of ‘90s slowcore icons Duster than it does any dancefloor trend du jour.

With this deftly realised, satisfyingly individualist collection Woods has announced himself as a welcome new face in the lineage of essential Hiberno knob twiddlers; Si Schroder, Somadrone, New Jackson et al.
