Mark E is a British producer who arrived late to the house music party, writing credible disco edits of ancient sex jams like Patti Labelle’s “Moon Shadow” and Al Hudson’s “I Am Under Your Spell”. For Stone Breaker, E’s first album that at least doesn’t appear like an odds ‘n’ ends compilation (the others were called Works 2005-2009), he jumps off the booze cruise into decidedly more frigid waters. What was once warm and sticky is now rock solid; intrusive rhythmic elements and vocoder bots have overthrown the voices from the black clubs of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
