Martin Dawson 'Is This Goodbye by Martin Dawson published on 2011/02/08 10:58:42 +0000 Moodmusic are proud to present the debut LP from Martin Dawson 'Sunday Smoking'. Having just started releasing under his own name in 2010, 'Sunday Smoking' is the release that develops the growing relationship between Martin and Sasse's Moodmusic label. From the slower melancholic mood of 'Is This Goodbye?' to the hypnotic drive of Morning Glory, this LP highlights the style Martin has been developing in recent months with deep, warm sounds through a house and techno mentality. Of the release Martin says "It's funny because it was not my original intention to work on an album in this sense but after a very busy 12 months in the studio I sort of fell onto it. And the support and enthusiasm of Sasse added more fuel to the studio fire. As a collection of tracks this LP goes a long way to represent the sound I enjoy playing in the clubs!" Martin released his first album 'Chapters' as King Roc in 2009 with critical acclaim and the success of this was highlighted with the nomination for best producer in DJ mag. Also known as one half of Two Armadillos, you can hear the influence working with Giles has had on Martin's studio work and by the time this LP drops it will have seen a 12 month period with Martin releasing with some the most respected underground labels such as Cocoon, Get Physical, Crosstown Rebels, 2020vision, Kling Klong, Off and of course Moodmusic. A continuing international touring schedule that includes Central and South America, Australia, Asia and throughout Europe and the development of the 'Sunday Smoking' part to his live shows will be taking this album sound across the globe.
