"Style is The Answer" is the first single from Mash's forthcoming album for Glasgow Underground. Released as a limited (200 only), hand-stamped & spray-painted, 12".
"Style is the answer to everything," booms the gravelled American drawl over Mash's bass-house groove. The Bukowski monologue continues, "To do a dangerous thing with style, is what I call art", and develops into one of the finest examples of spoken word house up there with Sagat's "Fuk Dat" or DJ Duke's "12 Minutes of Dreams". Early supporters include; Francois K, Seth Troxler, Agoria, Marc E, Round Table Knights, Pezzner, Tom Flynn and Untold. Radio support comes from Rob Da Bank, Andi Durrant & Mash himself.
Mash (real name Martyn Henderson), broadcasts on Capital FM every Friday from 2am to 5am. His show is known for playing the best in underground house, bass & techno. Recent featured acts have included Disclosure, MK, Andrew Weatherall, Maya Jane Coles & Maceo Plex. He has released on labels such as Dirt Crew and Blue Black as well as on his own Tracktion and CompactDisco Dot Net labels. His single ‘Somebody’s Property’ (featured in i-F's classic mixed up in Dublin '06) has recently been re-released with new mixes from Sei A, Ooft!, Kevin McKay & Rob Etherson.
