M.R.T.N are made of Sthlm Beat and Pomp. The guys produce together and have released under other guises including The Bunglers for SRUR. Sthlm Beat also performs as DJ M.R.T.N. and today we see this stunning techno fuelled monster "Desnoid EP" get a release. First up is the tough edged "Abdominal" which gets right down to business from the off with a rolling techno groove. Tough kicks are layered with some outstanding percussions and a sharp, crisp hat. The track takes on an almost oldschool techno flavour with the percussions rising in pitch creating a hypnotic vibe, top notch stuff. "Desnoid" takes a slightly more minimal approach, again we see a superb arrangement and a very rhythmic drum section. The synths have that retro style sound we all love and the guys have brought this sound up to date brilliantly. On the break the FX work is expertly crafted and creates a cool climax back into the track, definitely a tune that will feature heavily in techno sets. "Panzerfaust" is a tune that makes you realise what techno nowadays is all about. Thumping kicks and a deep bassline are the perfect platform for the groove mapped out by the brilliant synth work. Lots of percussive elements with cymbals and hats coming through perfectly and FX that will blow your mind, one to watch for sure!
