Martin King ‘Guilt Trip’ Ft. Juliet Rowe
There’s an incredible bout of producers coming out of Melbourne, particularly as of late. It may have something to do with the well-fostered nightlife that is so present in Melbourne, or even the ever-growing dance community.
MARTIN KING is one of these producers. You may know him aside from his solo work with his other projects THE HARPOONS and OSCAR + MARTIN.
His work makes definite nods at 80’s staples, and utilises a crafty bout of synths to the n’th degree. However his latest song ‘Guilt Trip’ sees a more melodic side to his production, with a gorgeous focus on not only production this time, but vocals too.
He’s enlisted the help of JULIET ROWE in lifting this, and the scope of this one is absolutely gorgeous.
It’s predominantly filtered with a cool spectrum of trap hi-hats and a crafty eye for layering, particularly with those synths.
Martin King has a particular eye for the details, and as shown in ‘Guilt Trip’, his percussive ear is definitely on point.
