** Repress of the killer second transmission from the Dixon Avenue Basement Jams camp** Information on Marquis Hawkes is decidedly scant - the label are simply calling him a new boy - though the standard of production here makes us think he's either established name operating under an alias or in fact a newcomer finally given the platform to unleash his incendiary wares. Either way you really need to check this; the four tracks span tempos and rushing feelings, with the brushed-down knackered red line business of "Housing Project" contrasting nicely with the pitched down Strictly Rhythm deepness of "Marvin" on the A Side. "Teetotal Acid" is reminiscent of Funkineven's recent lysergic excursions while the best might be left till last in "Sealion Woman". A highlight of Pangaea's recent and thoroughly immense RA podcast, the track buries a killer sample deep beneath a mental ghetto house style percussion workout.
