After spending the last 5 years as half the acclaimed duo Art Department, Glasgow has returned to his solo roots – functioning as a musical engineer, music composer, lyricist, and vocalist.

Set as a release for Claude VonStroke’s 10th Anniversary Remix EP, Marc Houle premieres his spaced out remix of the original classic with a crunchy percussive foundation. Raised adjacent to Detroit in Windsor, Ontario, Houle grew within the same fertile music community that spawned his former label boss and mentor Richie Hawtin.
