Mark Jenkyns teams up with Andre Salmon & Teddy Wong on the ‘Mode Select’ EP
Paradise mainstay and House tastemaker Mark Jenkyns keeps up the momentum on his new and essential Name Dropper imprint with a third standout EP, this time featuring three collaborations with, Andre Salmon and Teddy Wong.
Name Dropper is the home for Jenkyns’ music and a place to work with friends and artists he respects, always in collaboration where they can be free to take their production talents into new territory. Following the immense start with Fantasize from the boss himself and Mizbee, through to the follow-up from Morgan Seatree, the label has had heavy rotation from Steve Lawler, Camelphat, Solardo, Richy Ahmed and Mark Knight. For release three (Mode Select), Mark Jenkyns, Hot Creations, Suara and Viva regular plus seven-year Paradise Ibiza resident, comes correct once more.
These three originals are hugely effective but characterful cuts that again confirm Name Dropper to be the most essential new label and Mark Jenkyns at the peak of his A and R powers.
Our premiere is 1983, a track that hits hard. It comes with pounding drums yet plenty of soul in the loopy synth sounds and freaky vocals stabs. It’s a spacious, airy groove designed to bring real energy and colour to the floor and it does just that.
