5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 30 Oct 2005
This review is from: Strangest Things (Audio CD)
Dance/electronica genius. As a fan of the Misch Masch album that Freeform Five mixed, I looked up this release as soon as available. I only had to listen to a couple of clips before realising how good this was. Superb fat electronic baselines, and funky all the way through.
One stand-out track is No More Conversations, great vocals and slick production have created a killer track (currently topping Radio 1 dance charts), but it's by no means a lonely highlight. There are no low points. Get me to a club with this playing, now!!
Part 2 is a very strong selection of remixes with a host of names such as Richard X, Mylo, fellow Misch Masch-ers Tiefschwartz. A great double album as a result.
Anyone who likes Bugged Out, Fischerspooner, Tiefschwartz, Mylo, Erol Alkan and similar should def give this a spin. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than celtic or simple fusion, 25 Oct 2005
This review is from: Grit (Audio CD)
It was unfortunately only after Martyn's death that I was introduced to his music. The album Grit is an extremely impressive statement of both his roots, but also of defiance in the face of the illness which cast a shadow over the last years of his life. This fight was protracted and even drove him to destroy many of his instruments in frustration at his helplessness at it's onset at one stage.
The album is full of inventiveness which, even if you extracted the Scottish songs would find a place as contemporary music to discover and enjoy. The combination is a triumph of adventurous sounds and demonstrates a skill in managing the content which far surpasses similar offerings.
It varies smoothly between the soulful and introverted, through to the raucous 'Chanter' which would not be out of place in clubs around the UK. Stand out track for me is 'Why': so terribly apt as this is the question many will ask upon hearing how talented this young man was. Take a chance on this album, it'll be worth it.
