2011 was a big year for Marco Bailey on Bedrock, his critically acclaimed ‘Dragon Man’ (BEDMB01) artist album kicked off 2011 in style, followed by a 4-Track EP (BEDDIGIMB01) in the summer that featured ‘Faint Hope’, ‘Sa Trinxa’, ‘Bom Bang!’ (Deepfunk Remix) and the massive ‘Rubber Band’ (Dave Angel Remix) and he rounded the year off with his ‘Oriental Concept EP’ (BEDDIGI15), which featured an amazing remix from Germany’s Alexander Kowalski.
But, things are about to get bigger in 2012! Never one to rest on his laurels, Marco Bailey has teamed up with fellow Belgian producer Tom Hades to release an absolute monster EP on Bedrock. If there is any justice in the world of electronic music, “Stars & Shines” is destined to become one of the biggest anthems of 2012. It’s pure, spine tingling, haunting, melodic beauty marks it out as one-in-a-million in a scene sometimes swamped by too many run-of-the-mill tracks.
Neither should you ignore the distorted hypnotic “Shakey Solar”, complete with a nagging looped melodic hook line that is beyond brilliant, or the twisted vibe of “Why Don’t You Answer”, both of which are standout tracks in their own right.
Marco Bailey and Tom Hades have been occasional collaborators for over a decade. Anyone who can remember their 2001 anthem “I Love Techno”, knows that this deadly duo are well capable of producing monster tunes. “Stars and Shines” is such a tune and you will be hearing it for many, many months and years to come, a timeless classic in the making?
