Magic + Sparks

A 2 track funk single (8m 57s) — released November 6th 2020 on Delights 45

4 years and 12 releases down the line, Delights returns to its [re]starting point and presents a vinyl debut of two archive remixes from the label's founder and "head confectioner" - Markey Funk.

Both cuts are groove-heavy reworks of songs by local Israeli bands: "Magic" by Men of North Country - on the A-side, and "Sparks" by 3421 - on the flip. Both remixes are kaleidoscopic excursions into space age romance, sci-fi psychedelia, cinematic funk and the early days of electronic music.

With both sides initially produced in 2013, this new 45 offers a curious look into Markey's personal journey in sound between the debut LP by Group Modular and his own sophomore album "Instinct" - and the following relaunch of Delights.

"Magic" is taken from "Magic EP", CopaseDisques, 2013

"Sparks" is taken from "Sparks (Remixes) EP", BLDG5, 2013

[...] the Delights label is in its own league and no one is coming close to what they have been putting out in 4 years. - DJ Prestige Flea Market Funk, USA

Swapping horns for a windmilling drum break, the Magic remix transports the listener to a retro fifth dimension that rather resembles being inside a giant lava lamp - Tony Lansdowne, UK

[...] another super strong release. - Strictly Kev DJ Food, Ninja Tune, UK

One of our favorite labels that never disappoints and always comes with something amazing for our ears does it again [...] - Skeme Richards The Nostalgia King/Rock Steady Crew, USA
