26th February 2014 New progressive house release from Marc Burt
This month’s new release is out today and features two new progressive house tracks from Marc Burt. The title track, Bungee Jump, is a strange and slightly minimal affair, combining a haunting, bleepy riff along with a strange, elastic lead sound, but bringing in some of Marc’s trademark uplifting melodic trance elements towards the end. The second track, Pages From Ceefax, blends house beats with retro and easy listening sounds to bring back that early morning vibe of watching teletext to instrumental music. As usual both tracks are available to download for free, and are Creative Commons licensed for you to reuse in your videos, DJ sets and any other way you like.
