Martin Badder releases his first single ‘Dopamine’ from his forthcoming, self released, debut album ‘Soul Escape’.
Taking influence from the likes of Overmono, Bicep, Burial, Fred Again, SBTRKT and Bonobo, ‘Dopamine’ with it’s distinctive vocal mantra, flows though a number recognisable styles
including techno, house and electronica, whilst keeping an integral and coherent style of its own throughout.
‘I wanted to write a track you can lose yourself in, whether on headphones or in a dark club late into the night. It was important to me, to include a vocal narrative as well as the vintage synth hooks to give the listener something to cling to while being taken on a journey.’ – Martin Badder
