Album Review
Rasmus Rygaard
Reviewed 2011-06-05 
Mark E has been famous for his disco edits and swinging house sounds, but has yet to release his first full length album. That’s where Stone Breaker comes in. Although it’s a bit moodier than what I had anticipated, there is still plenty of warm, well-produced house grooves to keep your show going. Expect sounds similar to Erdbeerschnitzel, Tensnake, and DJ Harvey.
FCC: Clean Try: 7, 9, 8, 6, 2

1) 7:17 Crunchy drums, fragments of a synth line. Pounding staccato keys and chopped-up vocals.
2) 5:00 * Slow, swinging. Simple walking bassline, atmospheric synths towards the end.
3) 7:22 Booming, robotic. Bass rolling along just fine, hi-hats pick up the pace. Mumbling vocoders. Outro is somewhat acidy.
4) 4:28 Softer, more mellow. Retro ambient synth lines.
5) 10:28 Slowly builds up a percussion and vocoder-driven house groove. Deep, longing synth surfaces.
6) 4:59 * Organic sound. Subtle keys flail back and forth.
7) 8:12 ** Darker, more mysterious sound. Simple two-note synth line, builds intensity.
8) 8:23 * Dark, techy. Synth pads loosen things up a bit, and a clonky synth line helps, too.
9) 7:29 * Soft, discoish. Groaning female vocal samples and a cool bass line.
