Rest In Peace Martin Dawson

Usually when one appoints the phrase "needs no introduction" it can be seen as a cliché or entirely inaccurate. However, for one Martin Dawson a.k.a King Roc, the term has never seemed so fitting for one individual, as does it brings me great sadness to accept that the pioneering figure in deep house and techno has sadly passed away. His death was reported after facing ten days in hospital as a result of an aneurysm.

Dawson was an English producer and DJ based in Berlin, who made a name for himself as part of the Two Armadillos with Giles Smith. Dawson's style was something special,unlike anyone else and will be truly missed.  Through countless works and memorable collaborations with the likes of Andre Crom and Jay Shepherd, Dawson has left this world with an incredibly influential and important back catalogue. 

Below, I have complied a brief selection of his best works. If you have yet to discover him, I urge you to right this minute, you will not be disappointed.
