Although UK producer Marsh first grabbed my attention with the release of “You’ll Be Fine” back in the summer, his Ethereal EP (out today on Arrival Recordings) will no doubt make a serious name for this newcomer. The EP is a gorgeous composition of three instrumental tracks, “Ethereal,” “Sleeping Now,” and “Waiting For The Mail Man” that manage to both relax the listener and evoke powerful emotion. Marsh’s style bridges the often wide gap between progressive trance and deep house, confidently following in the footsteps of contemporaries like Andrew Bayer, Jaytech, and James Grant. Throughout the EP, he melds elaborate basslines with dreamy (or shall we say, ethereal?) pad layers, and even manages to take risks with elements like a Rhodes synthesizer on “Ethereal.” If my praise isn’t enough, “Sleeping Now” has also achieved both Record Of The Week and Web Vote Winner status on Trance Around The World in the weeks preceding its release. Take a listen yourself after the break, and as a bonus you can also watch a clip of Marsh on his first day working on the EP.
