Look out! Martsman comes correct with two incredible examples of his unique glitch-step sound for Hospital’s twisted sister. Hot on the heels of the mighty “New Blood” EP which has helped step Med School up to the next level; it’s time for some brand new music from one of d&b’s most exciting prospects.
The eagerly-anticipated and self-descriptive “8-Bit Bouncer” has been a massive favourite on the Hospital Podcast for many months. Chopping it up like it’s 2010, but using a sound palette from Nintendo circa 1985. This is the perfect example of what can happen when you combine ninja programming with great taste in samples. Elasticised beats and deep bass are wrapped tightly together with layers of abrasive electro hooks and the outcome is something to get dancefloors moving. On the flip comes “Halow”, a less conventional half-tempo stomper which continuously turns up the heat with an epiphany of pitch-bending synths and signature drum rolls.
Martsman‘s unparalleled brand of rough and rugged robocore d&b goes from strength to strength thanks to support from fans like London Elektricity, Logistics, Flight, Hype on Kiss FM, Warm Communications, Fracture+Neptune and Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 1.
