Boomkat Product Review:
Two years since his debut LP, Martyn drops one of 2011's most anticipated dancefloor albums. With 'Ghost People' he cements well-nurtured ties to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder camp, pooling his blend of UK Bass, US House & European Techno with the label's kaleidoscopic vision of electronic beat music, one which already spans the sounds of Lorn, The Gaslamp Killer, Teebs and Samiyam among others. Guided by a steady, experienced hand, Martyn refracts ideas borrowed and assimilated from every corner of the modern 'floor into a spectrum of helplessly futurist funk. Most notably, he's nudged the tempos down to a cooler groovin' 120-135bpm bracket, and what happens within this tempo zone is not far short of alchemy. From the top, Spaceape lends a sense of impending epicness to the synthscape intro 'Love And Machine', before 'Viper' sets up corrugated Techno riffs and metronomic hi-hats like a cosmically darkside D&B take on Zomby's Eski-dubs. The groove proper comes with 'Masks', a brooding Tech-House swinger with plump Reese bass and rippling Dub chords, next to the 2562-style rhythm mechanics and signature melodic progressions of 'Distortions'. At the album's apex, the sample-savvy breakbeat number 'Popguns' earns him countless future B-Boy points, while 'Ghost People' and the dippin' 'Twice As' will endear him no end with the sub-loving post-Dubstep/Funky masses. To close, we're taken further into Techno zones with the mighty, radioactive arpeggios of 'Bauplan' and the psychoactive Chicago stomp of 'Horror Vacui', before the tranced-glazed breakage of 'We Are You In The Future' leaves us floored and gurning for more. For our 2p, this album is more precise, concise and useful than its predecessor, you know what to do.
