Ole Martin takes us into the second half century of the Jæger Mix series with a 100% vinyl set. Always a pleasure to see the moustachioed selector in our booth, Ole Martin never disappoints with his eclectic and idiosyncratic sets, pulling out those rare and cherished gems deep from within his bottomless record bag. There’s always a sense of occasion to Ole Martin’s sets, and an upbeat personality to his selections that go from one obscure corner to the next. From Disco to House, tracks jump over the great expanse of the dance floor universe, and Martin manages to find those peculiar tracks, each with their own quirky personality. A Caribbean marimba in a House track or a stylised Jazz guitar noodling on a Disco arrangement, these are curious examples of musical genres and they perfectly embody the character behind the mix.
A musical librarian for House music and purveyor of the odd and the unusual, Ole Martin refrains from the obvious and through his most cherished medium, vinyl he is able to communicate something singular, happy and optimistic. Avoiding locked grooves and machine sequences, he captures something personable through his mixes, and has a very innate ability in stringing them together in an engaging narrative, and the message for this mix… “Love”.
