Mixed by Martyn

a 30-minute continuous “radio mix”, and shoot, why not play a few tracks back to back on continuous? Martyn gets labeled as dubstep, but this effort is a bit more diverse than the typical dubstep release, with nice techno/house/disco influences. Starts going uptempo with #4 and doesn’t let down. If I were lazy I would play 4-9 or 11-12 as a continuous set.

FCCs: 3. Try: 1, 4-9, 11-12
*=liked, **=loved

1.** 1:56 Instrumental. Spaced out 80s synths by Om Underground, reminiscent of The Knife, but with a more basic beat. Slow-to-mid yet danceable.
2.* 0:52 Instrumental/Intro. Slow piano riff, clicks, sparks and scratches in the background. No percussion. Robotic fem announcement at end: “You are listening to Martyn”
3.** 1:13 Spoken work by Gil Scott-Heron, who is *always* awesome, distorted in places over simple thump beat. FCC: “fuck a job”.
4. ** 3:37 Inst. Brings in more of a classic techno beat with a subtle, thumping bassline. Dark, robotic/kraut/industrial synth keys. transistions to a more upbeat, disco sound with background “tribal” chanting halfway thru. Favorite track.
5. ** 2:55 Inst. Continues the tribal/disco love. Robotic whooshes and bleeps. Sharp disco beat.
6. ** 3:14 Inst. Amazing. Nice, pounding basic synth percussion that makes you want to move, overlaid with scuffling, scraping percussion halfway through.
7. ** 2:12 Mostly instrumental. Continuation of last track, overlaid with rubber-band sounding melody. awesome. Fem vox transition into next track: “get it!” “hold up!”
8. * 3:46 More fem vox, some foreign/distorted. Sirens, wood percussion, tribal drums. Very techno.
9. ** 2:45 More of a straight-ahead house track, driving tribal rhythm, synth chimes, neat synth keys toward the end with sampled vox.
10. * 2:50 progressive-house-ish, with processed/distorted drums, some steel drums here and there, neat synth melody. transistions to classic deep-house synth keys.
11. ** 3:14 loved. crowd pleaser. epic beats, processed male vox “Inferno”. you can feel slight afro-beat, dub, jungle influence over a classic house beat. neat high-pitched processed male vox “for real inferno” transistions to the chill house sound of the next track
12. ** 4:12 chill house, think Marques Wyatt, Tosca, Kruder&Dorfmeister. processed fem vox: “I need it”. reassuring, pleasant synth keys. very night-time KCRW, SOMA lounge, douche-tini drinks, blah blah.
