Various Artists Horizons: Marques Wyatt
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Om
Horizons is a pleasant surprise: an outstanding mix of soulful house with a range and intensity that grabbed me instantly. Taking off with the gospel fervor of "You Gotta Believe" by Intense & Voices of 6th Ave., Wyatt builds up with classy vocal numbers from Kathy Brown and Barbara Mendes before dropping out into trackier cuts like "Slangin," featuring E-Man's outstanding scat. What really makes the mix is Wyatt's excursion into Brazilian and Latin territory, particularly Osunlade's sublime "Same Thing?" featuring Maiya James. Definitely not the usual deep-house drudgery.
