The Megacity EP is apparently the first of several collaborations between Mark E and keyboardist Nat Woodcock under the Project E banner due over the coming months on the former's Merc imprint. This new project sees a change in direction for Merc away from the sample based (and very successful) releases from ED, Quaid et al and towards a professed "strange cosmic territory". In truth, those distinctive Mark E hallmarks are very much still present across the three tracks here and it's all still resolutely deep house; weighty grooves and slow burning arrangement progression - only now they are complemented by the nimble key playing of Woodcock. This is perhaps most evident on the smeared Utopian vibes of the brilliant "Mosaic".
