Boomkat Product Review:
Following the acclaim garnered by his "Broken/Shadowboxing" twelve a few months back, Martyn at long last delivers the opening gambit in what promises to be one of the more innovative and boundary-pushing labels operating in and around dubstep. With roots in Drum & Bass and a healthy interest in 4/4, Martyn produces a kind of hybrid sound that manages to make a lot with very little, and its this stylistic minimalism that gives this music its aesthetic edge. "Velvet" on the A-Side here makes use of a light, lilting motif melody that edges its way into the mix with an almost Balearic vibe, but it's "Twenty Four" on the flipside that really pushes the envelope, making use of a much more full-bodied palette and a tight break clipped and skewed around neon strings to create a midnight funk that's as far removed from the masculine musk of your typical dubstep as can be. This is tight, edgy, impossibly cool material from an artist and label that we expect very big things from. KILLER!
