Title: Terra EP
Label: Last Night On Earth
Release: Out Now!
A man we know very well indeed, Huxley, launches his brand new alias, Martinet with a fine release on Sasha’s incredible Last Night On Earth imprint with 4 creatively expressive Techno behemoths, including a remix from the mysterious Thermalbear.
‘Terra’ is one of those special Techno tracks made up of fascinating synth work and fantastic sculpting skills. It is diverse with melody and emotional content. Soothing dark progressions keep the attention span fully focussed throughout. What a brilliant way to start a new alias.
‘Tumble Down’ keeps it going with those mysterious melodies and builds on the EP nicely. The bassline which pitches in a really cool and fun melody whilst the tight drums tick over like a clock. The brightness is achieved with the beautiful strings and stabs which really help grasp the audience’s ear from multiple angles.
Thermalbear’s remix of ‘Tumble Down’ sounds absolutely incredible. The bassline from the original has been mangled with what seems like a vocoder, which makes it really stand out as something different and unique. Thermalbear introduces a fantastic stab line which takes the track to the next level. Everything spews a unique vibe. This is an absolutely brilliant remix.
‘Unravel’ features an energetic 8th note bassline that drives the vibe whilst, again, those uniquely characterful strings that we have heard throughout keeps the highs and mids glued in spectacular fashion. Another stunning bass melody cuts into the breakdown. Martinet’s synth work is once again astounding. With Last Night On Earth releasing and the brains behind the project being superstar Huxley, we knew this EP was going to be special, and it delivers to full effect. Just stunning.
