Having recently released music on influential labels like Poker Flat, Cocoon, Four:Twenty Desolat (with his debut solo album ‘Crash Test,’ released earlier this year) Martin Buttrich has now achieved his solo pedigree. Having been nominated for a Grammy back in 2003 for his remix of Tori Amos’ ‘Dont Make Me Come To Vegas,’ he’s built himself up a solid discography of late - a far cry from his work producing pop stars, collaborating with Timo Mass and running his Time Tools studio in Germany.
‘Crash Test’ really excels in locking onto that infinite rhythm with Buttrich unleashing an array of textures from the squalling horns of ‘I’m Going There One Day’ or the bubbling arpeggios on ‘Enough Love To Hate It;’ something he’s undoubtedly going to sound luscious doing this Saturday when he performs live in Room One. Lining up next to Tiefschwarz, Adam Port and our resident Craig Richards this Saturday, Buttrich’s groove should be even more infectious on the Room One soundsystem than it is on his latest album.
We’ve kindly been given two CD copies of ‘Crash Test’ to giveaway to two lucky readers ahead of the performance. To be in the draw for the prizes simply email us the answer to the below question...
