The Latvian producer turns up the bass on his killer new record.
Hailing from Latvia, Martins Rokis’s previous EPs have marked him out as a producer to watch, combining alien techno rhythms with ambient textures in a style that resembles the music of Gamble and early Autechre.
According to the label, the four-track Mud Diver EP sees Rokis combine his love of mechanical rhythms and offbeat kicks with revving synths and dread-filled bass, creating a set of tracks that sound like a cross between Raime, Demdike Stare and Kode9.
Mud Diver arrives on vinyl and digital formats on April 14. You can preview the EP via the video for ‘Clockroach’ below, a heady eight minutes of bass pressure that sounds like Mala making musique concrète.
