Review: London's Subsequent are back, the promising new label has really got off on the right foot this year with some great releases thus far by Barbir & Nicola Kazimir and SHKNTOY but now it's over to Danish minimal hero Martinez; a veteran producer who over the last fifteen years has released on labels as diverse as Guidance, Moon Harbour and Cadenza. Starting out in explosive fashion with the bumpy and hypnotic roller "Squabbled" which will appeal to fans of FUSE London or Memoria, he then gets deep down and dirty on the lo-fi minimal house jam "Wallflower". On the flip we've got some sombre and emotive reduced electro in the form of "Chemtrail" which is perfect for that Berlin afterhour vibe.
Review: The Drifted Flow label made an early move in 2015 with a release from Tommy Vicari Jnr, but now returns with an entirely different premise - an eight-track double pack of fresh, invigorating minimal house jams from lesser-known and adventurous producers. Henry Hyde gets the collection off to a strong start with the wobbly funk of "Perchin," all dirty bass wobble and loose swinging rhythms. Elsewhere Martinez flirts with the crooked thump of electro, Alicia Hush wriggles through an abstraction of garage and Bilal channels a little of the Boogizm magic you might expect from S-Max or Fym. Overall, it's a release loaded with personality and flair for minimal spinners wanting some spicier ingredients for their mix.
Review: SlapFunk continues with a fresh new release by Martinez. We've been following him for a long time. Invited him to play at our new years party and now having his solo ep on the label. Four cuts for different moods.. Check it out!
