Marble presents the debut album from French producer Bobmo. This is a patiently fine-tuned album, blending club tracks with midtempo or almost beatless tunes, ranging from bad-vibed acid techno to synthetic landscapes drenched with an unmissable early morning vibe. This is pretty simple, honest music: no FX galore, nothing too upfront beat-wise. Feeling is the key and it doesn't really need anything else to be good. This record could actually have been released 10 or 20 years ago as much as in 10 or 20 years from now. Serene, powerful and febrile at the same time, it conjures an archaic rave sensation, coming from an era when DJs could play peak-time bangers alongside peaceful, lovey-dovey stuff. It has this early morning euphoria made famous by the likes of Larry Heard or 808 State (as on the intro and outro, both titled "Breaking Waves"), but it also displays a sheer freedom when it comes to the groove, shifting from tough, steely mechanics to fleshy, warmer material. This is still house, but this is really off-format house, made by some guy who might have heard way too much formatted house and decided he should make the music he loves in his very own singular way. Is it auteur-rave, leftfield house or deep-sea techno? It shouldn't really matter. New Dawn just shows how the funny, careless kid Bobmo used to be has evolved into a major figure in the history of lush dance music. Features appearances by Shaun J. Wright, Surkin, Para One, and Fear Fx.
