Although he's been an integral part of the Detroit deep house scene for nearly two decades, and commands the respect of his contemporaries, Marcellus Pittman has never really enjoyed the same level of acclaim as many of them. His long overdue first full-length Pieces may alter the perceptions of them that don't know. Formidably underground in its no-nonsense approach, it mixes raw, analogue house jams with the sort of spacey deepness most often associated with Motor City acts. In the latter category, the fluid "If The Earth Could Talk" and springy "Loneliness Leave Me Alone" stand out, while the "anything goes" synth jam "Random Acts of Insanity" shows his rarely seen playful side.
