Trevino aka Marcus Intalex steps up to Martyn’s 3024 label to deliver this monster of a tune. I’m having a hard time typing this as I’ve got both hands up in the air! Artwork by Erosie as per usual. Click the pic to dance around!

Another interesting Martyn interview, 10 plus minutes worth. Gotta thank Martyn for rocking his Connect The Dots Tee and helping me spread the gospel. Catch him live at Limited Addiction Presents…
As you should know by now, my friend Martyn will be releasing his sophomore album titled Ghost People on Brainfeeder in september. Get to hear it while he mixes it down when playing the first Limited Addiction Presents… on september 23rd (more on that here).
I for one can’t wait to hear the entire album, so I was glad to see this pop up: ripped from Benji B’s radioshow, here’s Masks, the first single lifted from the album. This will see the light of day on august 1st with a tune named Viper on the flip! The artwork is courtesy of the ever-formidable Erosie (that building isn’t photoshopped in case you were wondering).

Hot on the heels of Julio Bashmore’s release, 3024 returns with Jon Convex’ (one half of Instra:mental) Convexations EP. Opener ‘Convexations’ raises the curtain with traces of Yamaha fog and a hollowed out kick before a bassline fusing Giorgio Moroder with The Human Centipede rears up to provide unrelenting forward momentum. Glimpses of dialogue warped to the point of gibberish, an ever growing chorus of muttering percussive synths and a zero gravity drop complete the picture of a ride in cattle class all the way to Pittsburgh.
‘Falling Again’ dials back its predecessor’s intensity, evoking a robotic production line take on UKG. A metronomic 2-step rhythm forms the basis for a replicant diva’s final performance while another strikingly organic bass line spends the duration of the track expanding and arcing with all the grace of a particularly low frequency solar flare.
Exclusive to the digital version is ‘Order Into Chaos’. The first Jon Convex track we heard, a particularly intense 3024 board meeting saw it declared too good to leave sitting on the shelf. The most (warehouse) floor focused track offered here and a heads down simmering vat of acid, the surface of which sporadically erupts in frothing signal distortion and T1000 kicks.
With the audio content taking a turn into harder and darker territory, Erosie’s inimitable artwork provides an inky curve ball by taking his collage series into a softer but no less vivid palette providing another perfect visual counterpoint to proceedings.
3024 once again rises to the occasion. Hot on the heels of Julio Bashmore’s EP Jon Convex delivers a lethal slab of beats and bass to Limited Addiction’s favorite label. Click here to preview the tunes and camp out in front of your local record store on June 13 for its physical release. Ready-to-frame artwork courtesy of the one and only Erosie as per usual. Essential, buy-on-sight material as we’ve become accustomed to!
Another stop-motion by Erosie, music by Martyn:
Addison Groove aka Headhunter is scheduled for 3024′s next release. Martyn coined him a one-man genre and he’s not too far off, blending juke, house and dubstep elements into these two dancefloor cuts. A-side features a stomper built around a sample of Bob James’ Nautilus to great effect with the B-side dedicated to Minutes Of Funk. These two choice cuts come in an Erosie designed sleeve as per usual. Allow me to remind you you can still get your hands on official 3024 t-shirts in the Limited Addiction shop!
