Marshall Watson


  • Do Want What You

We’re calling this Deep House, but it’s also woven through with tasteful elements of Techno and Progressive House (no, not that new garbage, but the Real Progressive House that’s made from layer after delightful layer of take-me-on-a-journey sound). “Do Want What You” is a groove story well told, with several builds and some well-timed melodic surprises. Issac, who is perpetually on top of his game, has added a thickly layered and relentless dimension that would fit right into a peak time John Digweed set, and Mark Slee’s Low Slung Mix emphasizes both the funk and the chug. “Time Light” shines as well, with deepness and sparkling melodies that are almost visual in nature.

Marshall Watson (aka Shane) is a San Francisco Bay Area composer and electronic music maker who first came to the fore in 2003 via several singles and albums release on Sheffield’s Highpoint LowLife records. Since then his music has been released on a diverse group of electronica imprints including Car Crash Set, 442, Volkoren, Celsius, and most recently on Loöq Records.
As a composer, Marshall Watson is master of his craft. He currently holds a position as the Music Director at Sirius Sound, where he has written tracks for Yahoo!, Google, Flickr, Aruba Networks, Symantec, Cisco and many others. Despite the high credentials, his heart is still on the underground dance floor. You can find him DJing occasionally at infamous Qoöl Happy Hour, as well as monthly at Eclipse Salon, both in San Francisco.
