Martin Buttrich, a name synonymous for decades with expertly curated sonic productions, has had a career as long as it has been prolific. From youthful productions as an 18 year old under the alias X-Rotation, to his 2010 debut album Crash Test and its follow-up Collaborator, Vol. 1 in 2016, he is an artist who has constantly evolved.
Now he’s back to showcase his latest EP Northeast / Southwest on Planet E. “It’s been 11 years since my last full release on Planet E and I am so happy to be able to kick off 2019 in style and return to my spiritual home. I spent the last few months working on these tracks at my studio in Barcelona and am looking forward to sharing them with you”. – Martin Buttrich
The opening track Northeast sees punchy stabs interlace with a shifting melodic bass, both dancing playfully over and under shuffling snares and hats which carry the listener from start to finish. Southwest continues on with a bouncing percussive groove that provides the platform for a canorous bassline and string melody to emerge.
