Boomkat Product Review:
The latest release from Carl Craig's Planet E imprint, Martin Buttrich is a man behind the glass for the likes of Loco Dice - with 'Full Clip / Programmer' one of the first opportunities to hear him out in the open. Marinated in the ways of Detroit, Buttrich succeeds in walking that fine line where relaxed Techno and moody House meet - producing a sound that is sparse and relatively minimal, without any sniff of sterility. Kicking off the A with 'Full Clip', Buttrich wades in with some gnawingly evocative atmospherics, shrouded vocal samples and a keen beat that is relentless without seeming overbearing. On the back, 'Programmer' is a far more sprightly affair - preferring to knock-around with rubbery synths and energetic beats, allowing the man Buttrich to concisely show both sides of his personality.
