Berlin based producer Marquis Hawkes has announced that he will be releasing his second EP of 2015, Sweet, on October 30 via the Fabric affiliated imprint Houndstooth. The four-track EP is his third release on Houndstooth and is noticeably diffrent from his previous EP, Raw Materials, which focuses on more primitive house rhythms, rather than the Detroit influenced groove and funk that shines through in Sweet. Despite having featured Marquis Hawkes in one of our Bubblin' Up profiles in 2013, and featuring him as our first podcast of 2014, we still know very little about him. Having rarely been photographed or interviewed, Marquis Hawkes prefers to be judged solely on the quality of music rather than his appearance, character, or personal philosophy. His biographies simply read “Listen to the music - that’s all you need to know,” so we suggest you do exactly that.
