Interview by Trndmusik: Düstere Klanglandschaften und analoge Bassfiguren – das Debütalbum „Prisma“ von Martin Merz
PRISMA Review by Partysan: „Techno geht auch anders.“
PRISMA is the debut album by MARTIN MERZ. PRISMA stands for the multi-layered sounds of the album. A scenario of gloomy soundscapes and analogue bass figures is paired with elements from Industrial and EBM and takes the listener into the abyss of an urban future. Although the album wants to be understood as genre-free, the Tracks still do not miss the necessary groove for the club.
For his electronic compositions MARTIN MERZ isn’t only fishing in techno-waters as he also lets his listeners glide through ambient landscapes which transform into pumping organic shapes of Groove and synth melodies. It’s those bubbly basslines making love to space-filling spheric sounds and tribal drums that turn everything into a timeless and dancy work of art.
A particularly warm and analogue sound design is always present throughout the album, turning all tracks into an emotional work piece full of acoustic details. MARTIN MERZ accomplished a debut album whose growing-up is felt with every beat to the hair tips. PRISMA infiltrates the subconsciousness, electrifies and inspires to enter new worlds.
