as a companion release to his new material on is / was, mark has been kind enough to let us dig through his extensive back catalog, remaster and reissue three pearls from the crayon label heyday. zulu groove and warehouse blues roll along the darker technoid mode mark was known for at the time, while thru showcases the lighter, bouncier side of his style.
mark ambrose doubles up on his appearance on was/is with this strident bout of deep end dwellers, kicking off in style with the charged up strut and punchy mono bass of makossa (mix 1) making a point of stepping into a more peak time sound. makossa (mix 2) takes things in a more bugging direction, but there s still plenty of pressure to be felt in the wriggling low end mess and nagging hi hats. the teakup mix of makossa is a devilish broken beat track, and then wagamama slips in a loopy melodic hook and lets a firm but freaky slice of techno roll out underneath
