Eclectic graffiti artist, DJ and producer Dj Marrrtin unveils his new album opus « Cyclothymix ».
Following the success of his album « La Pie Bavarde », a duet with Tino, mc from Dayton, U.S.A., Marrrtin delivers a moody, intense, indeed psycho-musicographic psychomusicographic. He promises us a finely mixed set, at the heart of his inspirations: Hip Hop, Funk, Sound Illustration, Jazz…
Opening with « Awakening », straight out of a Dilla beat tape, followed by the Brazilian with the very Brazilian « Estrellas », an up-tempo theme sublimated by the gentle voice of Carla Vallet, who also infuses her suave voice on the track « Darjeeling », a bewitching call to let go. In his global wanderings, he takes us to New York with the track « L.O.V.E. »an ode to love, featuring the Temple’s guardian, A.G. of the mythical collective DITC and his protégée Hii Siddity, from the duo The Girll Codee. « Taraxacum » plunges us into a languorous atmosphere, sublimated by sublimated by the flute of Antoine Laloux from The Selenites Band. Then comes « Ben », a boom bap – melancholy jazz production, where the grain of vinyl mingles with the roughness of the Akai S950 sampler. Marrrtin’s musical drifting and whirling is a tribute to breakdance culture to breakdance and hiphop culture with « Inspiration Medley », a nod to anthems such as SWAT, backed by the keyboards of his Funky Bijou teammate, Deheb. A duo whose famous classics are played for the biggest world Breakdance Battles. Sample culture, drum breaks, Abstract Hip Hop, for the tracks « True » and « Time for Love », in which a guru preaches pan-love in the time of the Apocalypse. « Indian Groove », an Indian echo of Marrrtin’s many travels, which leaves us and saturates us with dopamine. « Cosmic Consciousness Without Transition », in the spirit of a mood-changing we plunge into the strange, scandalized prescription, guardian of the garden of love.
To close this essential album, « Headhunter », a dark Jazz Funk track with dusty soundtrack tinges, brings us to a close.
of dusty seventies soundtrack, with saturated clavinet responding to obsessive
melodies of Medline’s flute.
Ultimately, « Cyclothymix » is conceived by Marrrtin as a mirror to our changing moodsand seasons.
With a selection of seven fantastic tracks stepped out of the underground, HHCOMP01 is a window into the origins of a genre that has resonated with countless hearts and minds.
