Mark Reeve ‘Breathe’

Artist: Mark Reeve
Title: Breathe
Label: Drumcode
Cat. #: DC248
Release Date: 20 August, 2021

Mark Reeve returns to Drumcode following his superb ‘Distance’ EP from February 2020. The work was a standout moment for the label in 2020, the title track particularly beloved by fans amassing over two million plays on Spotify.

Summer 2021 signals the arrival of ‘Breathe’, arguably his most accomplished contribution to date. The eight-tracker goes beyond his trademark transcendental crowd pleasers. It encompasses lilting moments of euphoric ambience with ‘Ebullience’ and ‘Silent Whisper’, some trippy mind-expanding excursions into techno’s netherworld via ‘Irregular Choice’ and ‘Take You Back’ and the silky laser-kissed ‘Theme’, which can slide into a variety of different DJ sets. The title track is the jewel in the crown. Heavy on atmosphere and low-end punch, it highlights an inspiring return to Drumcode’s fold.

“After lots of studio time, I decided to change my daily routine and begin by walking in the woods. Being in nature and soaking up all the sounds of the forest was simply incredible and very inspiring. Lots of people have been suffering not being able to breathe, so that’s what inspired this project; the sound of nature and learning to relax. Learning to breathe properly has helped a lot.” – Mark Reeve
