1.Echo My Head
Martin Landsky’s long association with Poker Flat Recordings continues with yet another exquisitely realised three-tracker. Long since a staple of the underground electronic music scene in Berlin and Europe in general, Landsky’s deft ear for dynamics and sense of off kilter dance-floor knowledge continues to do the business for DJs and dancers alike.
Echo My Head is the perfect example – driving, focussed and funky, yet with a subtle undercurrent that keeps you slightly out of your comfort zone – and locked in to the groove.
That Organ has a similar aesthetic, chunky rhythms and bass pulses for the floor, and synth stabs and melodic hooks that keep the track in constant forward motion.
Weird Night contains a spooky, discordant synth that raises the tension over and over, before giving way to a hard driving rhythm track that will see the late night heads fully losing themselves – classic Landsky style.
