7146Martijn Deykers has been making waves in both the techno and dubstep communities with his previous releases as Martyn, for example impressing Francois K so much that he invited him to take over his Deep Space party in New York for the entire night. No matter how you might classify the music that he is producing, Martijn is keen to avoid pigeonholing his own material. “I think what makes music interesting is when an artist incorporates his/her influences and translates them into a unique sounding style”, he explains. “Although it might sound a tad arrogant, I’d like to think of my music as ‘Martyn music’. I try not to think of it as dubstep or techno, or house or drum & bass – it’s not about genres, it’s about music. This way I feel more freedom to make the music I want to make.”

Indeed, the hallmarks that made his previous records stand out so much are all present on his debut album “Great Lengths” which he released in April 2009 on the 3024 imprint. Martyn combines floating Detroit-esque pads, stuttering broken beats and dubwise basslines – but there are a few surprises as well. “Little Things” chugs along at a casual 117 BPM, whilst Martyn indulges himself with an epic beatless synth workout on “Brilliant Orange”. There’s even a solo piano piece breaking up the album, as well as two vocal contributions from dBridge and Spaceape (Kode9).
