With ’Tiny Little Widgets’, Martin Eyerer has just finished his second solo album. Two years after the distinctly dance-floor and club-oriented ‘Word of Mouth’, he now comes up with a long player which offers more variety between Dj-tools and listening pieces. Martin Eyerer has deliberately picked artists from different genres and countries with whom to collaborate on the originals as well as for the remix sessions.
For example, he was able to work with the Cuban singer America Rodriguez for the song ‘Un Empujon’. The track ‘Good Time’ got its vocals from Reggae Don. The latter’s dancehall vibe seems to be skilfully translated into an electronic tune. Then there is another collaboration with Phil Barnes who - according to Eyerer - is ‘one of the best singers he knows’. Barnes has already worked with Timo Maas, Paul Oakenfold, Moguai and many more – artists and producers that fully underline his performing quality.
In the run-up to the album’s release it already seems clear – Tiny Little Widgets will polarise opinion. There will be some people who are surprised by the vocal tracks, but others will just be amazed by the versatility of this album. Certainly, there will be enough talking points here to discuss for a long time to come!
Uniquely this time, the album won‘t be released on Martin Eyerer’s own label, Kling Klong, but on Cologne-based imprint, Blu Fin. This too is another sign of Martin’s new approach to his work. Based on the successful and positive collaborations between Blu Fin and Martin Eyerer during the last few months, as well as label head Andrea Engels‘ enthusiasm for the album, there was no doubt that the release should be on Blu Fin. In addition, this will be the first ever album release on Blu Fin, which creates both the potential and the motivation for all involved parties to make the event as special as possible!
