The breathing, chords and breaks that open "Spy On Summer" seem like a fitting start to Martin Landsky's debut, IN BETWEEN, before the track slides into the tech-house that will come to rule to roost. The exhalations of "Sweet Sweet Morning" give a lift to the dub techno, which only grows more prominent on "Dubaholic." But "Breeze Of The Nightingale" gets back to the smooth tech, with "Unleashed" offering a darker tip. A hint of tribal dub clonks onto "The Log" and pops up again with the house treatment of "Use Me." The slower "Just Closer" slides in like a dream, before "Machina (Play It Again)" pumps the tempo back up. A solid album.

Martin Landsky's debut album "In Between" is a tour de force of house and techno dancefloor sounds. Highly underated and my personal favorite of the Poker Flat label it is full of catchy rhythm's, quirky vocal samples, hooks and plenty of very decent bassline grooves. Like a shot out of cannon, "Spy On Summer" jumps you off on the twisted house sound that early Poker Flat was known and loved for. "A Light Breeze" is one of my fav's on the album, the bassline pause inbetween the snare and the kick combined with the sexiest of additional sounds is a perfect early morning dance floor record. A slight break from the more intense, "Dubaholic" re-teaches proper minimal techno to all it's listeners and "Breeze Of The Nightingale" shows just how infectious Martin's sounds are. "Unleashed" gets the album back on the upbeat with a tribal workout of epic proportions. You just wonder why artists dont use vocal samples like Martin does, it adds a house appeal that all these minimal producers could really learn a lesson what works on any dancefloor and not just on a minimal techno dancefloor full of mostly guys. Nothing sterile about these sounds here. The cd just continues from there, from good groove to good groove concluding with perhaps the most memorable melody of all in "Machina (Play It Again)". And there it is again, another proper voice sample just working the tribal house track over without even trying. Finally, after 6 and a half minutes you hear the melody of melodies, deeper than the deep, they just dont get much better than this. Then back comes the voice sample, "Play it again" and you agree.
