Rating: 7.5

Described as “one of Scotland’s most promising young acts” by Data Transmission, Mark Mackenzie is a name coming to the forefront of the UK scene. Releases on Arthouse, Concrete Music and Fly Boy have provoked positive comments from the likes of Tough Love and My Nu Leng. The Highlands based producer is also the creator of Concrete Music’s highest selling record, ‘One Two Step’.

Mackenzie’s latest work is being released on Fly Boy Records, owned by Bristol based brothers Tom and Ian Griffiths who together make up Icarus. The label explains that ‘Back Where We Started’ sees Mark exploring a more progressive side of production and displays a more mature sound.

The track possesses a lot of energy. Synths tease in progressive fashion while warped vocals, a rolling Moog bassline and fat kicks combine all the necessary ingredients for filling a dancefloor.

‘Back Where We Started’ is out on Fly Boy Records on October 10th.
