Over the past year, Marshall Applewhite has branched out physically and musically. Playing shows in L.A, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Berlin, Knoxville, NYC and his hometown Detroit, he’s come back with a new set of tunes in an unusual tempo range for the man who brought us Sludge.
‘GO HOME’ gives rise to Applewhite’s true love of Ghettotech, with tunes like the title track and ‘Ugly’. It’s almost impossible not to sing along. ‘TV Jack’ and ‘The Book Is On The Table’ round out the EP with some old school acid house vibes and re-envisioned Baile Funk accordingly. ‘TV Jack’ also features a vocal hook by Kilo Kish obtained from a Red Bull Music Academy session at Bonnaroo in 2015, while ‘The Book Is On The Table’ is a throw back cover of a classic Rio track by DJ Mp4.
With lots of support already (Green Velvet and Claude Von Stroke aka GET REAL were heard to play both ‘TV Jack’ and ‘Ugly’ on NYE in LA, as well as plays from two of Dirty Bird’s mainstays Killfrenzy and JPhlip), the tracks are sure to light up any dance floor from Detroit to Tokyo and everywhere in-between.
