Markus Garcia marks his debut as solo artist Heartbeat(s) with a textural mix rooted in R&B-flecked house beats. Layering upon the sound of his most recent releases with Jerome Potter as LOL Boys, notably, Changes with Heart Street's emotive vocals, the mix builds with Night Slugs’ T.Williams’ lively recent single Can't Get Enough before touching on deep and tech house from the likes of Kyle Hall, Dirtybird’s A1 Bassline and Montreal's Hissy Fit, the mix also includes one of Garcia’s archive edits of Chicago house legend Cajmere’s early 90’s track, Brighter Days.

After four years of success as one-half of LOL Boys, Garcia, now based out of Vancouver has begun pursuing solo work under a new moniker following the duo’s hiatus. His new work represents the culmination of his experience and contribution to LOL Boys, with a strong Detroit and Chicago house influence.

i recorded this mix live. it reflects the influences for the heartbeat(s) project. it also references the change in season from summer to fall with it's delicate but deliberate balance between darkness and light.
