When drum & bass aficionados Bryan Gee and Edo van Duyn witnessed DJ Marky’s energetic mixing skills in his native Sao Paulo, Brazil, they took him to London and transformed him from local hero into international fixture. He is a resident at long-running London drum & bass night Movement and this, his first international mix CD demonstrates exactly what all the hubbub is about. From start to end, the energy level is cranked up with Marky mixing in track after uplifting drum & bass track. The selection combines brisk, rolling breaks with feel good vocals and his signature international flavor. The opener, "LK" sets the tone for the whole CD as acoustic Latin-flavored guitars introduce a thunderous breakbeat. Marky skillfully weaves in the heavyweight sounds of J-Majik’s "Intergalactic Spaced Invader" and Future Cuts’ bass-loaded "The Specialist" alongside more melodic cuts by Shy FX and Un-Cut. Marky uses his Latin influence to spice things up; his own track "So Tinha Que Ser Com Voce" sizzles with funky Brazilian warmth as does his remix of Fernanda Porto’s "Sambassim". The Brazilian Job is simply one of the most original and diverse drum & bass mixes to emerge in years. This one’ll stay in your player for months.
