Even at its height in the late ‘90s, techno had always been something found around the edges of the more popular mutations of hardcore that took center stage in the UK, but this didn’t stop Hare from forging his own path. Originally releasing on the labels like Tronic and Potential, and later with other highly respected labels such as Perc Trax and Power Vacuum, Hare found much critical acclaim. However, it was always his own imprint Emetic, where his sound truly found its voice.
With the widespread re-evaluation of techno happening over the last few years, Martyn Hare picked his time to re-enter the fray, re-launching Emetic and performing his style of industrial, brutalist techno to the world. After more than 70 singles on vinyl throughout his career. Hare counts John Peel, Carl Cox, and Aphex Twin as longtime fans, and with many of techno’s top contemporary names supporting both his older tracks and new music, the veteran’s future is still burning bright.
After years of operating without the hype and without compromise, Martyn Hare continues to be in distinguished company, a seasoned figure amidst a raft of newer names whose experience and dedication to the cause speaks for itself.
