Google+ Beathearts: Martyn - Ghost people


Martyn - Ghost people

"I wish I could drag a tune in the trash can and then take it out and it would be dirtier"
(Martyn via Twitter July 6th 2011)

Beathearts rewind #28 of Deep Dish earlier today reminded us of new material from another Washington DC resident. The new album from Martyn dropped this week. Dutch DJ and producer Martijn Deykers lives in a DC suburb since a couple of years back. His first album Great Lengths (2009) was a great success and frequently supported by people like Benji-B and Gilles Peterson.

Martyn's music is another great example of what happens when producers go the extra mile and pick up influences from different genres. In a recent interview on BBC Martyn listed some of the artists that influenced him:

Download: Talking Heads — I Zimbra (Ney re-edit)

Download: Waajeed — Tron (People re-edit)

Download: Games — Strawberry Skies (re-edit)

Maya Jane Coles — The High Life

Slum Village — Disco

If you want learn more about Martyn's inspirations check his recent Resident Advisor interview.

Our picks from the new album are Twice as, Pop Gun and We are you in the future. The Ghost People album is available now in all formats via Boomkat.
