Artist to Watch: Martin Kemp
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who: Martin Kemp
Where: London, UK
Although lots of folks might simply know him as Brackles' little brother, 22-year-old Martin Kemp has done a fine job skating the wobbly line between garage and dubstep in his own right. Citing artists like El-B, Horsepower, and Zed Bias as major influences—not to mention hip-hop demigods J. Dilla and Madlib—Kemp has been digging into leftfield beats since his teen years. He's already released "No Charisma" on Brackles' and Shortstuff's Blunted Robots label, and more new tunes are on the way, including another Blunted Robots release and a Royal T remix on grime imprint No Hats No Hoods.
