DFA is proud to present the long-awaited debut EP by London's Marcus Marr, Familiar Five. Influenced byclassic soul, rock, disco, and acid house, the multi-instrumentalist, DJ, and producer makes spacy dancemusic, often including percolating synths, funky bass guitar, and vocals. A regular at Berlin's famednightclub Berghain/Panorama Bar since 2014, the lifelong music obsessive's first encounters with dancemusic were acid house records, which grew his vinyl collection of rock and soul, and attending all nightparties under Brixton's St Matthews Church. At last, Marr returns to DFA with a collection of elasticbassline stompers, reminiscent of early Daft Punk. The title track Familiar Five originally began with a rockriff, which he later repurposed as the backbone of a piece of slow, dark, dance music. Inspired by Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Faust, and Kafka's Metamorphosis, Marr explains that he wanted to make somethingspooky and simple - a song utilizing very few elem ents, with a throb and synth vomit. On the flip side,lead single High Times channels the electric guitar stylings of Nile Rodgers circa 1979, and makes gooduse of the producer's trademark whizzing synths as well as vocals from collaborator Nandi Bhebe. LoveRelease and Rocketship are both equally effective tracks built for the dancefloor.

Marcus Marr shares his Familiar Five: Remixed EP. The remixed tracks first appearedon the UK producer's Familiar Five EP, released earlier this year. The new record willfeature remixes from Justin Van Der Volgen, Prosumer, Gerd Janson and Ara Koufax."It was fun to ask some of my favourite producers to remix these tracks," notes Marr."I love Gerd's remixes and play them loads. Prosumer is a great producer and I'vebeen a fan of his for ages. Justin Van Der Volgen I also love - his originals and hisremixes are always interesting. And Ara Koufax I've been a fan of since their tune`Brenda.'" Marr is no stranger to collaboration, working with Australian musician ChetFaker on 2015's Work EP. Work yielded two hit singles, "Birthday Card" (Annie Mac'sBBC Radio 1 first play, #1 Hype Machine) and "The Trouble with Us" (#1 HypeMachine). The Familiar Five EP, however, shows him in his individual element, an artistand performer who understands just how to make superb music for both man andmachine. A regular at Berlin's famed nightclub Berghain/Panorama Bar since 2014,Marcus Marr recently performed a string of single launch dates in North America withThe Juan Maclean. He has previously toured with the likes of Hot Chip, FloatingPoints, Jacques Greene and Optimo, and has performed at the highly regarded MoMaPS1 Warm Up series, Day For Night Festival and Art Basel Miami. Marcus has alsocontributed mixes to Beats in Space and Boiler Room.
