Though most of the XLR8R faithful undoubtedly knows the elder Kemp brother, Rob (a.k.a. Brackles), his younger sibling Martin has demonstrated some serious chops of his own as both a DJ and a tunesmith. Back in 2009, he released the wonky, genre-bending "No Charisma," as well as a few singles via the now-defunct Blunted Robots label. He also put together a stellar XLR8R podcast featuring a smattering of UK-slanted house, funky, and garage, but after the release of his most recent single, 2010's "Wot U Got," Martin faded into relative obscurity, leaving much of the bass music world wondering what happened—until now. While we may never know exactly what the reasons behind his two-year hiatus were, we can safely say that it's now come to an end with the great news that Kemp is putting together a mix to promote his forthcoming German Salad EP, which will be released in July via Frijsfo Beats. Before then, you can check out the artwork and tracklist for Martin Kemp's forthcoming record, below.
