You know what’s a great way to hype an upcoming album? An EP before the release of said album. Martyn is doing just that with his album The Air Between Words due this June 16 and the release of his Forgiveness EP on June 2. This “8 Hours at Fabric” dub of “Glassbeadgames” comes from the EP, and is an alternate take on his collaboration with Four Tet (the original of which is on the full length album). This jazzy, deep number touches on some techno and house bits but is a generally grooving number and it bumps along for eight minutes with eerie and haunting vocal chops percolating throughout. Stream this for now and mark your calendar for the release.
