Marquis Hawkes is poised to release a new EP, which will arrive by way of Fabric offshoot Houndstooth this fall. The anonymous producer came to prominence with a stream of releases for Glasgow’s Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, not to mention additional 12″s for Creme Organization and Clone’s Jack for Daze series. His upcoming debut for Houndstooth, Fifty Fathoms Deep, reportedly finds the XLR8R podcast alum taking in everything from “jazz-inflected deepness, disco flavors, quirky cyberpop through to futuristic funk,” and is due out as a vinyl release on September 29. Clips for all four tracks can be found via the label’s website here, and a full stream of EP cut “Can’t Find a Reason,” in which Hawkes beefs up an R&B single with jacking drums and thick bass stabs, is available to stream below.
