Marques Wyatt is a purveyor of fine funk, swelling soul, and homely house. He fits in perfectly at the Boom Boom Room, although he rests his laurels in Los Angeles (where he maintains his residency at Deep) and calls Om Records his other home. From the fist record to the last, expect nothing from Wyatt but unadulterated soul and house. While his production dabbles in jazz undertones, hints of San Francisco bump, and Chicago soul twists, his sets are straight, simple and seductive house. Nothing but sweet vocals swept by lulling drums, expertly blended to a simple composite of bliss on the dance floor. (Lorenzo de Jesus Martinez)
