Ian Martin is a visual and musical artist from Rotterdam. A stalwart of the Netherlands electro squat scene, he performs using a maximum of two synths and no drum machines, an enforced limitation which infuses his material with a claustrophobic minimalism and a necessarily unique rhythmic element that mimics polypharmacy intoxication. 'Mechanical Rain' records the industrial ambience of empty office towers; night shift slave drones constructing sonic camouflage for leaking air vents and humming fluorescents while throbbing vacuums and faulty alarm systems effect a state of hypnotic cataplesy. It's his second album for Further after 2010's 'Intensions', following both his 'Shadow Walker' album on cult Rotterdam label Bunker and 'Defused Nights' on Legowelt's Strange Life imprint. As usual for a Further release, limited pressing in unique hand-screen-printed sleeve.
