Stripped right down to rugged essentials Marina Trench’s interpretation of soulfully charged music hits all the right buttons. Take the uncompromising Waterside which channel’s the ghost of Ron Hardy through tough, repeating bass alongside occasionally smooth keys, fiery percussion and vocal touches to heighten the occasion. Next, Get In reworks a series of consequential chords through various effects, again over heady drums, and again with big results. PS the bassline is delicious/ brutal in equal measure. The groovier, Train Call follows with an abundance of drum machines punctuating the pianos, while breathing fresh life into older formulas of House Music. Finally, Straight aims at the heart of the matter via breezy melodies drifting across the horizon, providing contrast to the previous riotous ignition.
