Crisp and quirky club tracks from Frankfurt.
Martyné is the type of producer who can assimilate a wide range of influences into his vision. His touch is always apparent in his choice of drums, vocal samples and tonal sounds, whether he's working with 2-step elements on a record for Traffic or trance-inducing, interlocking melodies on a GOSU 12-inch. On SFX|EFX, his voice manifests in the offbeat-accenting bassline and flangey hats on "Make My Day," the wonky synth emissions on "Efx L Sfx" and the matter-of-fact female vocal on "Loopy Schneider." There's a touch more rudeboy energy at work here compared to crystal-clean records like Deathstar or TP Project, particularly in the grimey wobble bass tones on the breakbeat-electro hybrid "Loopy Schneider" and the bassline-tinged "Efx L Sfx." Martyné's ability to bend styles toward his own makes his output not just reliable, but remarkable.
