Premiere: quest?onmarc ‘ELEVATION’
New York DJ and producer quest?onmarc summons vintage UK rave euphoria on their new EP. Hear the blissed-out breaks of ‘ELEVATION’ now
quest?onmarc will release their new EP, ‘ELEVATION (?5)’ this Friday, 5th November.
The two-tracker follows the The New York-based DJ and producer’s ‘Phoenix’ EP on Club Chai from January this year, as well as a few edits and bootlegs shared on their Bandcamp over the past few months.
Where ‘Phoenix’ was a futuristic collection of grime/Jersey club hybrids, ‘ELEVATION (?5)’ draws from a different pool of styles, and finds quest?onmarc looking further into UK dance music’s history for inspiration. ‘RINGS OF SATURN’ takes cues from classic dubstep with its frosty atmosphere, fluttering hi-hats and spaced-out beat. ‘ELEVEATION’, meanwhile, summons vintage UK rave euphoria with raw, frenzied breaks and soaring synth lead. Check it out below.
Quest?onmarc has also been named as a new resident on Rinse France, and will play a two hour set on the second Wednesday of every month from 9pm CET. You can listen back to their first show as part of the residency here. They also host a regular A/V show on New York’s The Lot Radio called SPIRALinggg, the most recent of which you can check out here.
