12/03/2021: “Taking Over Me” by Marcus Intalex and S.T. Files

I’ve covered Hospital Records’ interesting phase at the turn of the Millennium before.

I love that sound. Intelligent, soulful breaks, glimmering with class and infused with darkness. Usually packing a heavy bassline too!

And Marcus Intalex was a master of dark yet soulful dance cuts.

The groove on this is impeccable. A smooth, jazzy bassline and garage-breaks drum pattern are overlaid with otherworldly synths, dubby chords and smoky vocal samples.

The song was released in 2000, as a single and then on the label’s OutĀ PatientsĀ compilation.
