Snag the fresh MartyParty release through the widget above or the direct link below. And when I say “fresh” I mean less than an hour old. The Purple EP is a little taste of what we can expect from MartyParty’s full album debut set to be released on May 31st.
We featured the heavy hitting Superior EP release a few weeks ago on Glitch.CZ and we weren’t surprised to see it hit #1 on the iTunes electronic album charts soon after. The EP’s emphasis on heavy bass probably shook more than a few coffins over the past month. But Marty Party’s latest release, Purple EP, is a different beast entirely and it may leave a few bass lovers asking, “What gives?”
And that’s a good thing.
Fans already familiar with MartyParty’s previous releases, particularly on AN-TEN-NAE Presents and his collaboration with Ooah on the Pantyraid project will know that by no means is MartyParty a one trick pony. With the release of the Purple EP, this artist is showing us loud and clear that this isn’t just another “brostep” album, a pejorative term we’re unfortunately encountering more and more often these days.
If anything, the Purple EP is an indication that we can expect a solid and dynamic release when the full album drops at the end of the month. And if you’re still not convinced, make it out to one of MartyParty’s shows. I defy you not to dance.
“When I returned home from touring North American with The Monsters of Bass, I wanted to sit down and write a collection of songs that summed up the kinds of energy and emotion I found myself feeling and expressing to the audiences on tour every day,” states Marty. “This album touches on various forms of purple energy in a journey through the genre. The Purple album demonstrates the incredible range of this electronic genre and how it can express light and dark, turn from gentle to hard, but always delivers its message using only synthesized sounds.”
