Wintergatan return with the Marble Machine X, quite possibly the most beautiful groovebox ever

Swedish maestro Martin Molin has been toiling over a new version of the Marble Machine for some time and now we get to hear and see the fruits of his labours.

The Marble Machine X builds on the mechanical groovebox meanderings of the original and throws in a lot more metal.

You can tell by the sheer size of the thing that there’s far more to this project than before and as such, Molin has had some help from various manufacturers, designers and fabricators from all over the globe.

If you want to help him with this project and more future endeavours, then make sure you check out the Patreon page and if you want to see the project from the beginning, head over to the Wingtergatan YouTube channel (opens in new tab).

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
