3024 - new imprint from Martyn & Erosie

"We welcome you to 3024 - a fresh new imprint combining the musical talents of Martyn and the graphic artistry of Erosie. After strong releases on labels such as Revolve:r/Soul:r, Tempa and remix work for Hessle Audio and Offshore, Martyn has created his own musical playground where dubbed out sounds, Chicago influenced melodies and lots of bass dwell freely.

This first release brings you the sounds of "Velvet" - a rugged beat, heavy sub bassline with a playful melancholic melody progressing to an almost euphoric level. This track will stand out in any dj set, it is the musical side of dubstep, or the dubby side of techno. The flip side "Twenty Four" is a dark almost 2-step type roller, using looped chords and vocal snippets that are progressive in a creeping kind of way, and bringing back the funk of dubstep pioneers such as El-B and Horsepower in a 3024 fashion.

As one of Europe's most rated and influential street artists, Erosie brings his unique graphic styles to the world of 3024, making this first release a delight for the ear as well as the eye."
