First of all..Wow! This album is truly brilliant! Martyn has been teasing us all with his 12" single releases on his own label 3024 for the past year with tracks like 'Vancouver' and 'Natural Selection' aswell as remixes for TRG on Hessle Audio, Shed and various singles for Revolver. Martyn's music has been embraced by the dubstep scene due to his deep warm bass sound and 2-step riddims but do not be under preconceived ideas that this 'is just another dubstep album'.
Upon listening to this album it is quite evident that this is a pro at work, influenced by the Berlin dub-techno and drum 'n' bass scenes which can be heard in tracks like 'Far Away', 'krdl-T-Grv' as well as super deep, stripped down Theo Parrish stylee 'Seventy four' and 'Elden' an obvious head nod to classic chicago and detroit house music and tracks like 'The only choice' and 'Is this insanity?' which is a collaboration with Spaceape show his love for the underground dubstep scene. Martyn''s music connects the dots between all of these different musical genres producing wonderful emotive dancefloor killers!
An album you can't help but move to- Highly Recommended!!!
