Boomkat Product Review:
The latest release from Frank Martiniq arrives from the Boxer Imprint, some crazy grooves and ideas are contained within the 9 tracks and we'll head off at the start. 'Reckless' is a bouncy dancefloor number with all manner of synths and instruments playing wildly around the 4/4 creating a slice of madness that's quite unique to Mr Martiniq. Straight after 'Grace' arrives with a swinging 4/4 surrounded by clicks and squirts and some seriously deep organ lines enhancing the atmosphere, ace stepping grooves with some quirky g-funk freestyle synths morphing in and out. Also worth a check is the Akufen-esque 'Clash' with its flickering percussion and and spannered acid line, and also the exclusive vinyl track 'Frenzy' which seems to me to be the best track on the vinyl version, an ace garage / broken beat track with a crazy bassline that stabs and jumps all over the place, ace and refreshing stuff. Check.
