V/A - Influences: DJ Marky (BBE)

Web: http://www.myspace.com/djmarkyinnerground

An ‘Influences’ type compilation is likely to provide the sort of tracks loved by compiler that they hope will be appreciated by their audience. Influential tracks do not always translate to favourite tracks, but you can assume that the cuts featured here are ones enjoyed by Brazilian D&B legend Marky. Influences: DJ Marky is actually an incredible body of music, featuring everything from sweet guitar driven cuts sourced from his home country, to soulful grooves, fantastic house efforts and buoyant disco, before finishing at breakneck D&B. There isn’t a poor track on this compilation, with personal favourites including the percussive magic of the live version of Gabor Sazbo’s Little Boat (O Barqinho), Raphael Saadiq’s glorious Skyy, Can You Feel Me? and Sky’s glorious Here’s To You. Marky may be known for making a single style of music, but this compilation shows that he is a true music lover with exquisite taste.
