Demarkus Lewis - Demarkus Lewis – Running on Kaoz Street EP
Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse Records returns with the ‘Running On Kaoz Street’ EP late July, comprising three original tracks from stateside producer Demarkus Lewis.
Dallas, United States based producer Demarkus Lewis has carved out quite the career over his 150 plus releases with material on Moods & Grooves, Large Music, Nervous and Lazy Days Recordings. Here we hear Demarkus join the roster of Kerri Chandler’s long running Madhouse imprint slotting him alongside Tony Lionni, Dennis Ferrer, Isaac Christopher and Voyeur in the catalogue.
Kicking off the EP is ‘Okay’ which sees Demarkus offer up his typically soul-laden style with deviating Rhodes sequences, a New Jersey rhythmic swing and chopped vocal licks uttering the track’s title. Following is ‘Playing It For You’ which stays on a similar path with flourishing chord sequences and sporadic vocal cuts, while the shuffling beats and rugged bass groove fuel the track’s infectious groove.
Lewis then rounds off the package with ‘Body High’, rounding off this classic U.S house release with bright stab lines, jazzy fills, a direct 4/4 rhythmic approach and an amalgamation of high-spirited vocal lines.
Demarkus Lewis’ ‘Running On Kaoz Street’ EP is out on Madhouse Records 31st July 2015.
