Deadly Rhythm presents Martyn and Braiden @ SWG3, 28 May
Deadly Rhythm, the Glasgow party hybrid delivers a delicious crossover treat in one of the city’s most exciting venues this month with Martyn and Braiden at SWG3; a well kept secret and a great venue to lose your mind in. Since Martyn’s debut LP Great Lengths dropped on 3024 almost two years ago, the Dutch producer has been toying with our emotions and eating away at the boundaries of genre classification with mind blowing sets (Sonar 2009 springs to mind), and perhaps one of the best fabric mixes of last year. A producer and DJ unconstrained by muso politics, or ‘scene’ limitations, Martyn is a fantastic contender for the title of dance music’s own Robinson Crusoe, if Defoe’s protagonist rocked the Berghain on a semi-regular basis.
Another expectation defying DJ, Braiden initially made his mark spinning on RinseFM and his since gone on to hone his talents all across both hemispheres. Tight as nuts mixing combined with impeccable tune choice and a unique vision of what makes a dancefloor turn its collective head has allowed Braiden to cultivate a sound which more than comfortably picks from the best of house, techno, garage and dubstep. Top this off with a fantastic location and some heavy party-savvy promoters and you’re in safe hands. [Calum Sutherland]
