untilmyheartstops makes a welcome return to the fray with this sublime four-tracker from emergent swedish producer martinou, previously found sneaking around the sewer sender label. as is customary with umhs releases, the conventions of house and techno are masked by a veil of mystery, where billowing pads and crooked rhythms dig past common or garden variety club tracks to offer something more sublime. from the slender, shimmering unaware to the weighty thrum of excessive, surely and on to the delicately poised i dont wanna wanna feel, martinou proves himself to be entirely in tune with the hidden depths of the label
but the continuous stream wouldn’t provide sufficient answers for long. observing rudimentary structures sewer sender became tantalized with a vision of reverbation from lower vaults of confinement. waves reminiscent of solid concrete yet deeply seated below the ocean surface form and merges with the narrow surroundings. manitou takes the first step by setting a clear form for something deep seated. proceeding extends the notion of martinous inaugural appointment “procedure” with a take on industrial drums reverbing from the depths. never (anthem) takes the first part of the ep to fruition with stripped anthemic stabs and alarms to a strict and cleanly distorted beat. jargon solidifies concrete solid with enigmatic percussions over jaunty kick patterns. i have lost again focus on a dramatic narrative with hypnotic vocal stabs rolling over an intense kick and climatic builds. needlessness frames the entire release combining both the concrete solid and the deep sea seated with again a take on martinous inaugural release “needless”;,, leaving the frail thematic stab subdued by syncopated kicklike percussion and soaring hihats to create a toollike appearance.
walking the solitary path of damp scent martinou brings forth the first deliverance from label sewer sender. ssndr001 introduces martinou with a-side * needless* focusing on melodic tendencies, breaking it down into reverse madness. b-side procedure is strictly rhythmic fit for both 45 and 33 rpm play. with function in mind this release of raw sewage is constructed for the sole purpose of club play.
