The release of a full length Gary Martin album on Motech Records serves as a culmination of vision for the label. Originally inspired by Martin’s Teknotika Records imprint, now some 20 years later, Motech Records has aged into the perfect outlet for his latest full-length release, Escape From South Warren.

Gary Martin is one of the unsung heroes of Detroit techno. Since 1993 he has had his own label, Teknotika and by 1996 he had already released 20 EPs and began to DJ and perform live intern​ationa​lly. Whether as Gigi Galaxy, Mole People or as Gary Martin, he is known for his use of emotional strings, pounding grooves and deep melodies. His production technique has consistently retained a unique deepness that is almost at odds with itself. Both hypnotic and equally off-kilter, his distinctive production sound craft carries through to his new album. All of course layered with a healthy dose of Detroit funk.

Comprised of twelve new and exclusive tracks,Escape From South Warren features slow building compositions like ‘Moogy Mank’, ‘I Don’t Know Why’, ‘Eastward Course’ and ‘2000 People Outside’ alongside dancefloor burners like ‘We Get Down’, ’This is It’, ‘Siren Sinth’ and ‘Galaxy Style.’ In Escape From South Warren we discover an album built on groove and rhythm as Martin manages to fuse Detroit’s tech-know how with house music’s bump n grind to great effect. Even rave, acid-house and electro are drawn upon to colour Martin’s expansive sound palette.
