the martinez brothers return to their own cuttin headz label with a new two track ep. joint custody features collaborations with jerome sydenham, mathew jonson and martin buttrich. first track no pop is a 12 minute acid-influenced workout, channelling both the martinez brothers and sydenhams taste for faster-paced dancefloor-ready basslines alongside jonsons ear for the surreal high-pitched chirps pitch down into classic acid stabs whilst a metallic distorted vocal echoes above clapping hi-hats. affection deficit disorder alongside martin buttrich continues this sense of quirkiness, the titles eponymous acronym repeated over a darker, grooving bassline and spacey keys. the duos final collaboration with the producer, 9 pound hammer appears as a bonus third track on the vinyl release. the joint custody ep is the martinez brothers first release since the incredible success of last years stuff in the trunk featuring miss kittin. the release follows the pairs highly anticipated gig at the launch of landmark new london venue, printworks.
martin buttrich - two new projects born simultaneously. his new label, rhythm assault, is intended to be an outlet for impulsive releases of his own music, free from the constraints of rigorously organised and planned imprints. the labels first project gives birth to collaborator - a two volume project seeing martin release a continuous stream of brilliant collaborations with the likes of carl craig, guti, dj tennis, loco dice, timo maas, the martinez brothers, guy gerber to name but a few. the first collaboration titled synchronicity, with mathew jonson.
in less than a year since first starting out, guy gerber’s rumors label has become one of the go-to outlets for considered, classy and cultured house music. after tastemaking and standard-raising releases from guy & dixon, lake people and chaim – as well as memorable parties everywhere from bpm to wmc - now the imprint offers up a fantastically strong and seductive four-track sampler entitled chinese whispers.
master of after-dark electronic symphonies, martin buttrich is set to drop a pair of heavyweight tracks on guy gerbers supplement facts imprint this winter. a-side earth of foxes is a moody masterpiece with a complex tapestry of wonky chimes, ethereal voices and a galloping groove. b-side monkey troopers is another techy monster with brooding bassline and classic buttrich drums. with that innate quality of buttrich’s productions the earth of foxes ep is both hypnotic and loopy whilst encased within intricate textures and rhythms.
grammy nominated hannover producer martin buttrich gets down to business with this sharply delineated four track ep, his first release since his >crash test< lp on desolat. buttrich is known for his deft hand with spacious, warm tracks that crackle and snap. his propulsive techno and house music re filled with compressed living sounds. on tracks like >fireball< and >magic market<, crisp percussion shimmers around snug-fitting basslines, with snares and toms moving the speaker cones insistently. >fireball< will quietly smash the dancefloor, with rhythms so taut you could bounce nickels off them. the heavy kick of >rocket< anchors it to agitated drums slowly enveloped by a melodic soup, inflected with disrupted noises as it sweeps over the listener. >20 ways< has a reflective and fresh feel, like city lights seen through rain, with a peppy beat that swaggers along. then theres that bass again, bringing disarming warmth, and always with the underlying influences of reggae, hip hop and soul... music lovers who purchase the vinyl release will be treated to a free download voucher for all the digital versions, as well as additional bonus tracks. the 4 bonus tracks wont be available to digital-only customers at this time

played by c-rock, d julz, gregor tresher, 2000 and one, minilogue and many more… like no other german producer, hannover-born martin buttrich has been decisively influencing the sound aesthetics of electronic dance music since the middle of the nineties. having been more in the background for most of the time while working for and with timo maas and loco dice among others, his benchmark releases for carl craigs label planet e or poker flat have also spotlighted his original name in the public. buttrichs second ep for cocoon couldnt prove better his prediction that in 2008, minimal techno will be containing more warm and melodic components. strangely familiar but always surprising, again and i lost my wallet provide us with bassprone reduction somewhere in between techno and house, and harmony bits that remind of caribbean calypso sounds provide the feeling of the approaching summer which makes both tracks perfect for the final of the open air season 2008. at least, buttrich will be an integral part of the season closing between ibiza main river and spree.
hunter is more based on the beat than on his (buttrichs) other recent productions. combined with hypnotic driving vocal snippets and warm synthie sounds, buttrich has created two great dj tools, that have enormous power on the dancefloor and perfectly carry on the series of marvellous releases on cocoon reco: eulberg, david k, fuckaponydelic or pig & dan
