London-based, Bristol-born producer Otik is releasing an EP through Martyn's label 3024.
The four-track 'Soulo' EP marks the artist's debut on the label, and sees him explore various tempos and sounds, drawing from UK techno, grime, jungle, dancehall and much more.
The EP will be released on 19th November. You can listen to the title track ahead of the full release below.
3024, the label run by Martyn and Jeroen Erosie, is to release a three-part compilation showcasing music by artists from the label's mentorship programme.
The scheme was launched early in the COVID-19 pandemic, and offered developing producers monthly group sessions to exchange ideas, as well as a personalised curriculum. "It's become a vibrant community of producers, DJs and radio makers exchanging ideas and creative energy," says the label.
Brighton's Patterns venue has revealed details of its reopening series of parties, taking place from June to September.
Due to reopen in late June, in line with the UK government's current COVID-19 roadmap, the club will host DJ sets from Horse Meat Disco, Sicaria Sound, DJ Storm, Oneman and Forest Drive West, among others, in its first month back.
Yak will release his new EP, ‘Dire Hit’, via Martyn’s 3024 records on 13th April.
Long time Berghain/Panorama Bar resident Martyn will release on the club's Ostgut Ton label next month.
The 'Odds Against Us' EP, incoming 26th July, is Martyn's first solo release since 2018's exceptional and atmospheric 'Voids' LP – a deeply personal album that came in at No.7 in our top 50 of the year.
The next V/A EP on Martyn’s 3024 will be released early next month.
Featuring four fresh cuts from Jacques Greene, NKC, Djoser and Martyn himself, the suitably riotous release follows breakthrough bass wizard Yak’s debut on the label in December 2018.
Premiering below, we’ve got Egyptian-born, Washington DC-based Djoser’s ‘Wera’. A percussive, low-key rattler that could subtly alter the mood of any dancefloor, it’s one of four gems in an increasingly essential series of V/A releases on the label.
As both producers and audiences have opened up more and more cross-pollination between sounds in recent years, the possibilities for the album format have become endless in electronic music. And the results in 2018 have been pretty astounding.
From harrowing bass music, dissonant IDM, pulsing electro, engulfing jungle, bubbling ambient and beyond, the year has seen a raft of more esoteric works garner widespread acclaim.
Bristol DJ/producer and Utopia Music founder Mako will release the final EP to appear on the late Marcus Intalex’s Soul:r label next month.
Set for release on 9th November, Mako’s contribution to the label’s celebrated ‘Fourfit’ EP series had been scheduled to drop in mid-2017 but was delayed following the sudden, tragic passing of Intalex – real name, Marcus Kaye – that May, aged 45.
