Hodge - Sunlight On A Broken Column
About Sunlight On A Broken Column
I thought about the concept whilst writing with a focus on the image "Sunlight on a broken column".
Though he's a new face compared to some of Bristol's famed artists, Jacob Martin's music is the epitome of the city's adventurous dance music scene. His early work as Hodge helped shape Bristol's post-dubstep mutations, and the city's penchant for bass and genre experimentation is there throughout all the twists and turns of his discography. He makes techno infused with the bass weight of the dubstep days, a sound that's as suited to Tempa as it is Livity Sound. He's the type of producer who puts out dark and banging techno on Berceuse Heroique, before delivering a glittering, mostly ambient record for No Corner a few months later. Martin is a chameleon, but he retains a signature handling of bass and melody. Each of his records are quite different, but all are essential listening.
