Mark Ryal – Blood Orange #deephouse

A contemplative morning for me today. Tanzanian coffee on the go and to accompany a track from Mark Ryal from his The Red Cell EP. This is tagged as deep house, and I guess it is. But although there are lush down tempo elements in the soft chords, there’s also an underlying sense of inventiveness. Rhythms wriggle around and elements jostle pleasingly for space. The verges on the Jamie Oliver one-too-many-ingredients but stops just short.


iTunes / Apple Music:

Highly respected underground House and Techno stalwart Mark Ryal returns to Colour and Pitch with the follow up to his acclaimed 2015 debut EP ‘4th Floor and Rising’. A long-time resident DJ at Glasgow’s Sub Club during the 90s, Mark often shared the booth with luminaries such as Derrick May and Claude Young, as well as hosting The Red Cell, a Thursday night soiree which gave this EP its title.

The Red Cell EP sees Mark exploring intensely personal themes throughout four musically rich, powerful and mature compositions. From the dream-like opener ‘Blood Orange’ through a bleakly beautiful two part deep space odyssey ‘Orbiter’, to the elegant and tranquil melody of ‘Martian Sunrise’, ‘The Red Cell’ EP is best enjoyed as one single piece of sonic art.
