ABOUT “SURFACE TENSION”
“Surface Tension” is the second release in a three part series of brilliant deep house by San Francisco producer Mark Slee. Like the previous release, the sound palate here is tight, tasteful, and funky. “Canvas” opens this release with an almost progressive sounding chug, artfully tempered with a spine of deep house and tech-y percussive detail. “Watercolor” comes to you as two mixes, the Moonlight Melody mix being the bouncier of the two, and both containing a riveting musical plot line of tension and release. Mark’s previous Loöq release “Wandering Ways” made quite a stir in promo then entered the Beatport Deep House top releases chart in the very first day of release.
