DEN SORTE SKOLE:
'Stone' puts you down on a porch like a character from an old western movie. Staring out across the hot dry land as sweat drips down your chin, old tin chimes set the mood. Industrial fuzz hums in the distance as chanting voices cry so quietly, piercing the subconscious mind. Looking out, you watch the black smoke mingle with red dust clouds, racing towards you until Boom! A translucent veil of Egyptian silk blows up, shrouding the landscape behind. The air pommels into it at such velocity, taking the form of a thousand horses simultaneously rearing and charging. Instruments blaze into life as as a heavy bass line kicks in, urging you forward into a chorus of handclaps against the shoulder rolling alarms.
You may call this 'Industrial Noise' but that label may be a little niche for a (dj set) that is selling out gigs in venues such as Copenhagen's Vega.
As a sample-based and Composer group, Martin and Simon have forged a path from niche to a wider audience. Reaching conventional popular success hasn't been their intention or motivation, coming from a culture and history of hip hop. However, due to their mixing mastery they've not managed to go unnoticed.
Drop all expectations with these two. Open your ears and enjoy the trip!
