Mark Fanciulli joins the Motech Records with Two Track EP


Mark Fanciulli joins the Motech Records roster in the Detroit label’s 15th anniversary year.

It may come as a surprise to learn that Mark Fanciulli only made his debut in 2011 with ‘The Tide’ on Joris Voorn’s Rejected. He has since gone on to release on labels like Saved, Defected, Truesoul, Intec, his own Between 2 Points and possibly most notably Carl Craig’s Planet E where he followed 2014’s ‘Chord Kaoss’ with last year’s ‘Progression EP’.

Fanciulli delivers two new tracks for Motech, backed by remixes from DJ 3000 himself plus Motech regular and fellow Motor City resident, Mazepa. His original version of ‘Deviation’ is a jackin’ and tracky beast with its brutal bass, off-kilter keys and funked-up drum work. DJ 3000 comes at it from the classic Motech angle, adding that Detroit touch for his first remix, while his additional String Mix gives us even more pure Detroit Techno emotion. Where would we be without those sweeping Detroit strings!

Mark’s original version of ‘Final Approach’ takes a different direction with deep chords and melody, yet still tough and clubby, bridging the House / Techno sound Mark is known for. Mazepa’s remix takes it further down the tech road, stripped and punchy, giving the chords a resonating quality and placing focus on the drums.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
