On his debut solo EP, US-Born, Berlin-based composer, drummer and multi-instrumentalist Martin Rott attempts to escape the grid of the producers computer screen and embrace the circles of life’s organic complexities with lovingly crafted beats, delicate piano and vintage orchestral arrangements dancing together on the edge of what may just about be classified as electronica.

The critically acclaimed record's masterfully subtle intricacies barely hint at the prodigal, genre-hopping, decade-plus long career as a producer and live musician Rott left behind, even while finishing multiple degrees (one of them with a double major) simultaneously, all the while nurturing a marriage and a family at an age most of his contemporaries were scouting hacks to nurse hangovers. 

I catch up with my college-friend at his Berlin studio and catch up on the perils of the producers life-style, the challenges of a working-musician and the subjective nature of the time-line needed to figure out one's musical call.
