Marc Smith feat. Kevin Knapp – Untitled 16


A – Hindsight feat. Kevin Knapp
B – Ya Feel Me?

Marc Smith’s Untitled 16 fears no house with chunky rhythmic swing and emotional chord progressions. These two tracks drench your ears in vintage shimmer and pulse over focused dancefloor provocation. Think Nu Space Disco without the lethargic pace.
Hindsight is a full, lush mix of melodies and swing that makes no small use of the vocals of one of the most in-demand vocalists in techno and house today: Kevin Knapp. A simple, emotional falsetto melody in the spirit of Odyssey, Imagination and Shalamar (or dare we say Earth, Wind & Fire and Kool & the Gang?) asks “How did I ever see you were for me? …But the problem isn’t me.” Love in conflict – isn’t this the stuff dance classics are made from?
Painted from the same palette of spacious vintage synths and shuffling beats, Ya Feel Me? brings a touch more of the Tech with a tight kick-to-clap punch. Snips of male vox play hide-and-seek with swirling, shifting melodies that echo and drift into the ether.
