about

Marquis Hawkes is back with a new EP, ‘Sweet’.

Pairing up a sugary R&B sample with his signature swinging but slamming beats, opening cut ‘When I Get Home’ is a return to the flavour of 2014's summer smash ‘Can't Find A Reason’, although this time around, it's more tracky and introspective. Next up, a different facet of Hawkes’ production talents is reprised with ‘At The Witness Stand’, a trippy take on classic NY freestyle.

Opening the B-side, title track ‘Sweet’ furthers Hawkes’ trademark rough and ready house sound with distinctive vocal hooks and a hip-twitching rhythm, whilst bringing up the rear, ‘What A Relief’ is a raw but inescapably funky drum workout that would make the likes of Traxmen & Eric Martin proud.

Cut and mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering.

"Arguably the man of the moment, this is Hawkes' third release on this excellent label (following the acclaimed Fifty Fathoms and Raw Materials singles)." - Mixmag

Marquis Hawkes Berlin, Germany

Marquis Hawkes debuted in 2012, releasing a trio of EPs on Glasgow’s Dixon Avenue Basement Jams label.
