Marcus Jakes – Up To Me (Original Mix) [Preview]
Amongst the peak in European house music and notable underground spiral, Marcus Jakes has been a sparing yet serious contender to the ranks. He hit it out the court with remix duties for Gero’s “Call Me,” returning next month for a late yet imperative solo debut for Jalapeno Records with indisputable proof of his primed house getup. At a time when sharp grooves and fluid bass stabs have become commonplace on the digital market, Jakes executes “Up To Me” with the on-point floor precision required of a genre everyone wants a piece of. As sparing melodic elements and chopped samples subtly thicken the plot, there is little denying that this is an artist whose agenda looks tipped towards some of the most honestly tailored British house music to bless the label’s outspoken discography to date. Watch out 2014 and its associated ‘ones to watch’ – Marcus Jakes is well-placed to dominate that list in the months to come.
