Pleasure State Returns for Repopulate Mars 100th Release

Pleasure State

Lee Foss, MK, and Anabel Englund resurrect Pleasure State after a seven-year hiatus with a vibrant EP to mark Repopulate Mars’ 100th release.


Made up of three of the dance music scene’s heaviest hitters – Lee Foss, MK, and Anabel Englund – it should come as no surprise that each track that comes from Pleasure State is a chart-worthy belter. And the two-track Break Away EP, which recently dropped on Lee’s Repopulate Mars imprint, stands true to that. Celebrating the 100th release on the label, the EP is the first collaboration from the trio since their energetic smash record “Ghost in the System” dropped in 2014.

First up on the EP, the title track “Break Away” is a dynamic cut that layers Englund’s feathery vocals over shuffling claps, syncopated percussion, and a jumping bass line. On the B side, “Take My Time” sees the three melds gloomy, minor keys, airy synths, and a chopped ethereal vocal sample to create a deep down groove perfected for those late nights that flow into early mornings.

I’m so proud that MK, Anabel, and I could bring back our group Pleasure State to mark Repopulate Mars’s 100th release with some of our best songwriting and production. It’s an important milestone for the label and I couldn’t think of a better way to ring it in.
