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.
Djoser will release a new EP in August.
Egyptian-born, Washington DC-based producer, Djoser, returns to Martyn's 3024 for his first four-track EP, full of "bass heavy electronic hybrids for the body and the soul".
The artist, who featured alongside label boss Martyn and Jacques Greene on a 3024 VA comp last year, released the first track from the forthcoming 'Secrets' EP via Bandcamp, with 'Alumen' dipping in and out of hard percussion and bubbling breakbeat.
Yak will release his new EP, ‘Dire Hit’, via Martyn’s 3024 records on 13th April.
Nervous Horizon’s TSVI will release his second EP as Anunaku next month via Martyn’s 3024.
The three-track ‘Stargate’ EP follows the Italy-born, London-based DJ and producer’s debut on Whities under the same alias last October. It follows a similar theme, trading the complex, experimental sound design that fills his work as TSVI for headier, club-ready rhythms and infectious melodies.
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.
