Following a standout remix of Spokes' "Flight" in 2016, Miami-based producer Marks makes his debut proper with Drain. Discovered after Coyote Records found his SoundCloud page and lead track "Drain" in particular. Marks' sound -- a distorted, grainy take on US rap beat-making -- was inspired partly by growing up in Jamaica and coming into contact with rap and video game soundtracks after moving to the US. While his music may appear simple on first listen, it masks a deeper, darker complexity. Title track "Drain" is a hypnotic, three-minute loop that lands somewhere in between blissful dream and shadowy, dystopian nightmare, while "South Cold" spouts tension and anxiety from every bar. This theme continues on the crunchy shrill of "Lantern", while final track "Dash" signs off with dizzying melodies and scurrying beats on a harder, club-focused note. Spokes turns in a stunning widescreen remix of "Drain" that wouldn't feel out of place on the OST to a rebooted slasher movie.
