Hailing from the province of Venice in Italy, Marco Rubin has been making music since his mid-teens, channeling inspiration from tastemakers such as Jamie Jones; it's fitting that Rubin brings his three-track "Modular Dance EP" to Jones' Hottrax label this March.

First up is "Modular Dance," a gritty and lo-fi sound with a paranoid lead synth snaking through an urban landscape, before "Follow The Time" heads for more stripped-back territories that pack a punch with its kinetic kicks and dry basslines. A chopped-up vocal reverberates about the mix next to freaky sound designs that make this one pop. Lastly, "Jump On The Floor" rounds out a stellar debut with an irresistible hint of garage shuffle in the drums, while futuristic melodic phrases rain down to bring some cosmic color.
