CD Reviews

One of the Best
Bryan J. Campbell | Houston, TX USA | 05/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great album for anyone with an interest in seeing a fusion of modern dance with traditional celtic sounds. Bennett is a remarkably gifted musician with a keen ear for mixing the essence of both club dance sounds with traditional bagpiping and celtic arrangements. I recently purchased his Grit CD which is a true masterpiece. It prompted me to reflect back on how good this original CD is. Sadly he passed away from cancer a few months ago but he has left an enduring legacy in the form of his music."
Freak to the Beat
foghorn leghorn | Barnyard, USA | 10/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been listening to 'Bothy Culture' for several years now, and to be honest I've never grown tired of it. There are a whole host of Celtic-techno stuff that followed hot on the heels of this CD (you know the score: the Afro-Celts, Hyperborea, and so on), but Martyn's album has proven to be an endlessly inventive landmark. It's not just the beats that are terrific: there's a lot of layered sound here, cleanly done, and I still discover new moments on 'Bothy Culture' I missed the first 100 times around. For those who are fans of the Scottish new folk breed, by all means check out the Peatbog Fairies, especially their 'Fairy Stories' CD on the Greentrax label. Now get up and dance, ye lazy bag of bones."
A seamless mix of traditional celtic and techno music
foghorn leghorn | 07/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"No doubt due to his extensive training in classical music, Martyn Bennet produces something amazing. Many talented musicans have mixed techno beats and sounds with samples and chunks of other people's music, and it usually comes out sounding manufactured and layered - everything Bothy Culture is not. No small credit due to the fact that he plays most (if not all) the instruments himself, Martyn Bennet is able to design a song with a techno beat in mind from the start. How many of his peers could say the same?"
