Martyn's Ghost People LP was a highlight this year, both for the artist and Brainfeeder but the Dutchman's wizardry certainly didn't stop there. "Hello Darkness" blurries the lines between techno and the phenomenon known as bass music, like only Martyn knows how to. It's half-step beats are a fine match for the synth perversions going on in its backdrop and it was up to both L-Vis 1990 and Bok Bok to remix the original along with Berlin's masked fiend, Redshape. The former is a sweltering exchange of bass howls and detached percussion elements, whilst the latter indulges in 4/4 tricks even though it actually sounds more at home here in the UK than in the walls of Berghain!
