Review

Marcus Marr's previous productions have largely been marked out by an ability to create rubbery, funk-fuelled anthems that put his own fine musicianship at the heart of the action. You'll find plenty of similar material on his latest DFA EP - see the Bootsy Collins jamming in New York in 1981 vibes of previous single "High Times" and "Love Release", which is marked out by some fantastic, jammed-out synth solos - but also tracks that explore darker and moodier territory (a product of being alone in the studio all night, according to the man himself). Of these, it's the slow, heavy, dubby and druggy pulse of "Familiar Five", featuring a distinctive spoken word vocal and a groove straight out of the post-punk playbook, which really hits the spot.
