Carl Taylor "Only U" (EPM Music) previews by epm-music
The second track taken from Carl Taylor’s forthcoming album follows July’s single release of ‘Perplexer/Violet’, which featured a remix from Orlando Voorn. Continuing the journey ‘Only U’ is released on 14 November with re-workings provided by Mark Broom and Luis Martinez.
Carl’s previous releases can be found on the likes of Bugged Out, F-Comm, Dust Science, Advanced and F1 Recordings, as well as his Warehouse Trax series, which has built him a reputation for delivering a range of techno from tougher dancefloor beats to blissfully melodic tracks, that always feature his signature depth and soulfulness. With ‘Only U’ Carl explores this deeper side giving us gorgeous synth work, a stylish groove and sublime melody, for this considered track.
Since the start of the 90s, former East Londoner now Norfolk based Mark Broom has been a name that is synonymous with the UK electronic music scene. A truly prolific artist, he has a myriad of production credits to his name having worked with world-renowned labels such as Mo-Wax, Warp, R&S, Soma, Ifach, BPitch Control, Platzhirsch, Rotary Cocktail, Material and 2020Vision. Stripping ‘Only U’ back to its techno fundamentals, the beardman delivers a slamming peak-time alternative that begs to be heard on a big system.
Hailing from New York, Luis Martinez releases on Monsta Recordings, which he also runs. Starting out as a DJ in 1985, Luis's reputation grew and he soon found himself playing at legendary clubs like the Palladium and Limelight alongside such luminaries as Frankie Bones, Onionz, Lil' Louie Vega, Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia. He later became a resident at the Long Island club and label, Caffeine where he further developed his sound. Now living in Tampa Bay, Luis run his studios and label, but most evenings you can still find him DJing somewhere. A fact that is evident on his remix of ‘Only U’, as Luis turns in a clubby rendition with a tough house twist.
Carl Taylor’s album ‘True Faith’ is released in December.
