Hamburg's Diynamic are back with another volume in their Four To The Floor series, aimed squarely at the dancefloor with their energised techno leaning grooves. First up, Human Machine presents the melodic trance induction of "Africa" complete with emotive pads and soaring arpeggios, then there's Neapolitans Moonwalk with "Orbital", a dark and atmospheric journey track that would make even DJ Tennis stand up and notice! Alex Schaufel then presents the oddly titled "Black Drumma" which provides a tough and gutsy groove balanced out by some smooth gamelan melodies. Finally Frenchman Marst appears with the slinky and bittersweet tech house drifter "Aquamoor" which is utterly sublime.
Rising producer Martial Thebault aka Marst is a native of Paris and was first spotted by none other than Laurent Garnier, He's appeared on top labels like Diynamic and King Street thus far - he can now add John Digweed's powerhouse Bedrock to the already growing list. From the deep and brooding dancefloor drama of "Insane" that goes for that melodic vibe similarly explored on Innervisions and Stil Vor Talent, to the funky tribal tech-house of "Escape" which comes complete with Carl Craig style chord progressions for added measure. He really gets a groove on with the soulful, futurist bounce of "Fury" which closes the EP out in great style.
