Martyn Interview

DJ Martyn Interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints on Vimeo.

Dubstep has had some interesting permutations over the last year or three: it’s become the sonic underbelly for so much of pop music, spawned some truly awful adolescent chest-bumping and morphed into some wonderful bass-led dancefloor business from people as varied as Shackleton and the folks at Hessle Audio.

One of the first producers who really took the dynamics of dubstep successfully somewhere else was Dutchman Martijn Deykers aka Martyn, on his 2009 debut LP ‘Great Lengths’. He took the interesting melodic bits from Detroit, the bump from Chicago (even more so on his latest album ‘Ghost People’) and the bass dynamics from dubstep, fusing it into something deeply involving.

I’d been trying to get the man in the interview chair for a while; he’s a smart, articulate and considered character, who I took an instant liking to from the get go. As always, let me know what you think!
