Ekko Traxx Vol. 2 by Martin Landsky
Martin Landsky’s long association with Poker Flat Recordings continues with yet another exquisitely realized three-tracker. Long since a staple of the underground electronic music scene in Berlin and Europe in general, Landsky’s deft ear for dynamics and sense of off kilter dance-floor knowledge continues to do the business for DJs and dancers alike. After the great success of Vol.1 , Landsky now presents 'Ekko Traxx Vol.2'.
'Echo My Head' is the perfect example - driving, focussed and funky, yet with a subtle undercurrent that keeps you slightly out of your comfort zone - and locked in to the groove.
'Weird Night' contains a spooky, discordant synth that raises the tension over and over, before giving way to a hard driving rhythm track that will see the late night heads fully losing themselves - classic Landsky style.
'That Organ' has a similar aesthetic, chunky rhythms and bass pulses for the floor, and synth stabs and melodic hooks that keep the track in constant forward motion.
