M Quake: Fall In Love With Yourself
Artist: M Quake
Title: Fall In Love With Yourself
Label: Purely Physical
Product Type: 7-INCH SINGLE
Following Locks On Our Doors Not On Our Hearts (BLACKEST 061LP), a long form confessional for Blackest Ever Black, M. Quake (Tarquin Manek/Martina Quake) return to redirect relationship lament into alternate, shifting worlds for "Fall in Love With Yourself" via Purely Physical. In this 7" 45, you are treated first to an off the cuff philosophy on "how to love". Side A uses a sample from an interview with Eartha Kitt, her voice sitting atop Quake's stripped-back, sticks 'n' stones production style which utilizes background noise elements in the interview - birds chirping, dogs barking - with Eartha's powerful attitude emphasized by an almost gospel-like, dubbed-out organ. Side B, in classic instrumental dub style, acts almost as a demonstration or exhibition of this new found self-love, giving you the fully fleshed-out version that unveils all the sounds present in the A side and plays to all of the producer's strengths. What's left of the vocal is echoed to smithereens, the sub-bass line and resonant chords all harmoniously combining to create a surreal, Disneyland-like utopian setting.
