Throughout the many layers of his winding journey in electronic music, Holland native (now Washington, D.C. resident) Martijn Deijkers, aka Martyn, has always stood in a genreless scene of his own.
Though his influences are wide-ranging, Martyn’s music is deeply inspired by the futuristic and melodic aspects of Detroit and Chicago. His rhythmically diverse sound floats across drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep and various strains of bass music, just as smoothly as it traverses house and techno, and encompasses abstract ambient soundscapes. Based on musicality and energy in equal parts, Martyn’s layered tracks are a rapt exploration of melancholy, futurism and dancefloor hypnotism.
Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL was born and grew up in New Haven, Connecticut. These days he lives in Brooklyn and is known for turning 2-step on its head. Lustman’s rich melodic textures and hyper-kinetic beat programming injecting a fresh sensibility into the genre, taking dancers on journeys through beat-driven low tempo sounds and inventive new-school UK garage and dubstep. He’s released music for Planet Mu, Ramp, Rush Hour, 50 Weapons, Hemlock, Swamp81, his own Blueberry Records imprint as well as Ninja Tune. He has toured with James Blake; opened for Radiohead; and remixed for the likes of Seun Kuti, Photek, The xx and Disclosure.
Initially introduced to techno and house by witnessing awe inspiring sets from Detroit hometown heroes such as BMG, Mike Clark, and Robert Hood at illegal parties around Michigan, Contakt has quietly smuggled the Motor City’s refusal to stick just one of those two genres to NYC via his floor-filling DJ sets, co-founding and curating the forward thinking Brooklyn club night TURRBOTAX®, and his production on12”s for labels like Argot, Icee Hot, and Local Action that refuses to be categorized as one genre.
