Marquis Hawkes makes his return to Aus Music in the form of a blazing, floor-focused two-track EP. The Basement Is Burning takes its name from a near-fateful experience stemming from an electrical fire in Hawkes's home which culminated in him and his family being evacuated from a fifth floor balcony. The title track kicks off with splashy, live drum samples that are armored with electronic layers before a feel-good piano lick glides into the mix. "Tower Block Boogie" then tumbles short funk samples through bold drums as a fervid sense of tension burns throughout.
