‘Mr. Saturday Night’ w/ Mark E


When Birmingham interior designer Mark E moved into house music, he quickly made a name for himself by doing weird and wonderful things to samples from divas including Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, and, most memorably, Janet Jackson. He seems to have tired of edits, but the chopped-loop new tracks on his full-length debut, Stone Breaker (released not on his own Merc but on ever-dominant Spectral Sound), more than live up to the promise of his early work. With residents Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin.
