New MartyParty brings the purpz + LP, US Tour info

MartyParty Releases Six Shots Of Jameson Hits stores January 30th 2012

Purple don MartyParty isn’t fuckin around. He just debuted the single from his upcoming LP, Six Shots of Jameson¬†and no surprise, it’s incredible. Lushly layered minor chords weave over taught percussion and fierce sub bass, punctuated by skanky synth stabs and reverbed synth-horns. The drop is a riveting, spinetingling bass-gasm, but it’s also incredibly smooth and rich, not unlike the some really good bourbon. Or scotch.

Just Because Of You by MartyParty

The track displays not so much restraint (though there is that – nothing here is overdone or melodramatic) as mastery. MartyParty, now 6+ years and hundreds of tracks deep into the production game, is starting to reap the benefits of all that time spent crafting. This is some jedi master shit here – he’s making it look easy.

Which is not to say he’s getting old. MartyParty may be granddaddy purps to all these young whippersnappers, but his stage energy is second to none. During a live MartyParty show, aka The Purple Opera, he’s building every jam from scratch, assembling loops and samples, as well as mixing in new tunes from other producers, all the while dancing harder than anyone in the crowd. It’s a fucking blast.

So you better get motherfucking hyped that he’s announced a slough of US tour dates from February to March. The purple mothership lands in NYC Feb 17th at Drom.
