Only a few releases in, Ellum Audio is already becoming a glowing presence in the world of electronic music. For the third release, this blossoming imprint introduces extended family Marksy & Alta aka Odd Parents - close friends with label head Maceo Plex and at the heart of the Ellum Audio crew – and their debut release featuring two killer remixes from Berlin based Catz n Dogz & Martin Dawson.
Deliciously funky, title track ‘Fame’ delivers a modern disco – house hybrid, with an electric locked in groove. This infectious number will be sure to infiltrate your senses. Featuring a powerful electronic vocal from MP and funky guitar licks, this track slots seamlessly into the Ellum Audio catalogue.
Following their successful release on Get Physical in March 2011, Polish duo Catz N Dogz team up with Martin Dawson once again to supply the remixes on this tasty release. Heading up the B-side is their ‘Sweet Saturday Remix’ a mysteriously dark delivery of whomping, warping basslines and driving energy with added melodic keys and metallic bell ringing. Released as a digital only, their ‘Friday Fever Remix’, holds onto the raw funky style of the original but creeps into its own, exploding as a dancefloor guaranteed to make you move.
Over on the B-side, the second original track from Odd Parents, ‘Silk & Wine’ steams in with raw analogue percussions while electro synth patterns and organic keys glide over the tougher beats with rising emotion. A true solid groove burns at the heart of this bouncing beast and will capture the soul of any who hears it.
Marksy & Alta aka Odd Parents, are originally from the East Coast, U.S.A but now reside in Spain where they frequently work in the studio with their musical engineer Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex. With further releases in the pipeline for Ellum Audio, you’re bound to witness the rise of Odd Parents in 2012.
