On Voids (OSTGUT 043CD/029LP, 2018), long-time Berghain/Panorama Bar resident Martyn returned to his deep, percussive roots, nimbly constructing webs of rhythm, space, and inventive basslines. On Odds Against Us, the producer projects the common denominator as a spirit of sampling innovated by drum 'n' bass, but which operates independent of BPM, as shown by the title track's floating, Havoc-like piano riff over minimal, mutant UKG and a snarling, amorphous bassline. "B.C. 2" drives full-on at 170 -- Detroit deepness through a London lens. "Rhythm Ritual" delivers on the title's promise, with layers of interlocking drums, melody, and chopped vocals.
