SLT077: Below the Surface EP – Demarkus Lewis
Release date Oct 7, 2014

1. In The Spot Tonite
2. Keep The Groove
3. Give It To Me

Release Info

We are happy to welcome the creatively talented Demarkus Lewis, who serves up this tight release focused in more of a deep melodic direction with sprinkles of garage and classic house flavors keeping Salted in mind, including plenty of warm layers and steady sounds to move the floor.

Playful rhythmic vocal elements glide over seductive chords and choppy stabs as bold bouncing basslines move on top of tight effective drum patterns.

We hope you dig it…
