Project E is Mark E's first collaboration since his Good Times release on Prins Thomas' International label some 4 years ago with "Dragon", this time Mark teams up with Keyboardist Nat Woodcock.
Nat studied piano at the royal college of music in London and went on to form britpop punk band Arch Stanton & jazz outfit The Nat Franklin trio, which featured regularly on Jazz FM.
Later returning to classical piano where he picked up awards and accolades on the solo performing circuit.
In 2012 he released an album of cut up avant garde piano and percussion music entitled "The Itch". A cross between John Cage, Bernard Herman and Thelonious Monk.
The two met via mutual connections and decided to hit the studio in spring 2012 with the intention to create a new unique project combining their musical strengths but keeping the output within the MERC ethos. The result of this can be heard within the "MEGACITY" EP released on MERC MUSIC in October 2012.
The 3-track 12" combines influences from both producers ranging through 80's synth pop, classical avant garde, Italo disco & detroit techno. A departure from previous MERC releases which have relied on sample heavy driven deep house, PROJECT E holds tight to the deep house direction but takes it into strange cosmic territory. The Megacity EP is the first in a series of releases dueover the coming months.
