Tune of the month
Martin Buttrich & The Martinez Brothers '9 Pound Hammer' (Rhythm Assault)
Continuing Martin Buttrich’s ‘Collaborator’ series is this classy workout, made with The Martinez Brothers. Full of funk and odd little effects and vocal clips, it has a steady pace and gripping rhythm. It’s one of those techno rollers that goes on and on, refusing to relent. The bass keeps on driving, the bubbly effects keep on drawing you in and the weird vocal punctuates a stupendous breakdown.
