Connect with Marc Houle:

WetYourSelf! Recordings parting shot for 2012 comes in the form of a four track EP from bone-fide techno innovator Marc Houle and is entitled 'Zorba' EP.

Having left Richie Hawtin's Minus in 2011 to refocus energies on his, Magda and Troy Pierce's Items & Things imprint, Marc Houle has continued to impress fans of forward thinking techno, most recently with his Undercover LP project. Houle's involvement with WetYourSelf!'s weekly club night goes back years while his superb remix for APP's 'All I Can Think About' on WYS! Recordings 2011 meant he was a must have for a future release.

From the plucked bass tones of opener 'Zorba' to the fluttering reed synths of closer 'Oo oo', Italo and Cosmic disco is the dominating force on this rare foray outside of the Items & Things camp, and the results are infectious.

The unstable, detuned bass of 'I Uh You' create a woozy, drunken funk that fans of Houle's material will lap up while the uninitiated will no doubt be taken by it's weirdo charm, a trope that bleeds through the entire EP but really unleashes in third track 'Rainysnake', a masterpiece in loose, machine music.

Overall, 'Zorba' is the sound of Houle playing with his influences and playing with his machines and the result is a resolutely 'fun', unique and sometimes bizarre EP.
