Mark Thibideau – WGD 12008 (WGD12008)


Placid aka Paul Wise is the chief operator at ‘We’re Going Deep’ – an online community and record label, born out of a lifelong affair with the many shades of electronic rhythm and obsession for collecting records since 1988. On a mission to share and release new music via his We’re Going Deep imprint: you’ll find only the best in Acid, Electro, IDM, Techno and Deep House for the dance floor, front room or even just your headphones.

Bringing the sounds of another highly experienced underground House and Techno fusionist to the next WGD solo series edition, Mark Thibideau is an enduring force. Hailing from Wallaceburg (Ontario) alongside his twin Brother Matt, he has been conjuring his own brand of sonic sorcery as far back as the 90s via various aliases and projects. Renown for his deeply soaked sound design that straddles the depths of Basic Channel’s aesthetic with a more altogether velours finish. Thibideau has graced the likes of Joule and Berg Audio in recent times, releasing some much sought after EPs.

Offering up 4 equally silk edged yet powerfully crafted dub infused grooves, going against convention and heading straight for the B side, the EP kicks off with the refreshing roll of B1 “Overcome Gravity” – a breezy flight through the upper reaches of the atmosphere. Combining tightly swung percussion with shimmering synthesis, all wrapped in undulating elements that basque in the warm glow of a mid summers evening. It’s a much welcome invitation. Accompanied with the slightly more introspective tones of B2 “The Fading Future” – minor chords lead to metronomic beats, leaving the bassline follow their path as the track twists and turns to take hold. An equally masterful trip to other worldly territory, you can’t help but admire his poise.

On the flip side, A1 “Circulate” ramps up the energy factor a notch as Thibideau unleashes a slice of pure understated, bass rumbling, heady workout all shot through a slow filter. The type of hypnotic cut that’s designed to do maximum damage at HIGH volume. Seriously restrained magic! It conjures up the magic of Mike Huckaby’s (RIP) Mix of “The Final Step”. Ending on the upward trajectory of A2 “Rotation”, here he continues his mission in the same vein but with more open frequencies – propelling to the outer reaches and leaving you wanting a whole lot more.
