About nine hours ago I received word from Buzzard Gulch signing Blamma! Blamma! that one half of the production team has passed away due to a battle with cancer.
Here's what Nick Blamma! had to say about his producing partner...
"Martin was a truly amazing guy, who did all kinds of wonderful stuff in his short lifetime, not least make lots of fantastic music in many different guises. I will miss him dearly and my thoughts are with his wife and their beautiful little baby son.
I'm mailing you now because you've been a fan of his music in some shape or form, so I felt it was right to let you know. I also wanted to share some of his final work because he put lots of effort into it. I've included a link to his last remix, of the track 'You Came Out' by our good friends We Have Band. It's quite a laidback, breezy affair compared to our usual output so I think it's fitting. We hope you like it, please feel free to share it as you see fit and let as many people enjoy it as possible."
We Have Band – You Came Out (Blamma! Blamma!'s Fleetwood Mix)
Blamma! Blamma! – Carry Me Home
Blood Red Shoes – It's Getting Boring By The Sea (Blamma! Red Shoes Mix)
Nick also shared this...
"Martin and I had been working on lots of new material, which I would possibly like to finish and share with the world at some point, but can't really say when at the moment.
For now, if you do play any of the above tracks, please do so loud and remember all the laughs and good times Martin brought to so many people."
My heart goes out to Martin's family and his partner Nick.
