The most notable release was of course ‘Sex, Drugs, Rock’n’Roll’ which became one of the breakbeat anthems of 2007 and found place on just about every mixtape compiled at the time.
In late 2008, Marten began a new tech, electro and breakbeat project with the much famed Leeroy Thornhill (Prodigy) – Smash Hifi! Their debut single ‘Everything You Need’ featured a world class music video shot in Canada.
