Martyn has provided body moving funk to the dance floors since the mid nineties. A love for Detroit techno, Chicago house and hiphop fueled his need to be seriously involved in music. When exposed to drum & bass in 1995, Martyn was destined to take things further musically and began to lay the foundations of his career as a DJ, producer and promoter.

In 2005, Martyn`s own productions started surfacing in the drum & bass scene and made it to the shops on play:music and Marcus Intalex' Revolve:r imprint. In 2007 Martyn took the world by surprise with a sizzling dubstep 12" release which was definitely a breakthrough for Martyn into the wider dance music scene, as his music is now being recognized by DJs in the techno, house and dubstep world. His tracks have been receiving radio- and DJ-play by great names such as Gilles Peterson, Mr. Scruff, Ricardo Villalobos, Laurent Garnier, Skream, Kode9 and Underground Resistance. Full of musical ideas, Martyn finished an EP for Revolve:r , a 12" for Appleblim's Applepips label, and his remix for Leeds-based Hessle Audio instantly turned Martyn into a highly in-demand remixer. Over the course of 2008, he remixed Black Pocket (aka Steve Spacek), Shut Up and Dance, Flying Lotus (on Warp), Shed (on Ostgut Ton) and remix for Ican (planet E, UR). With every release his fusion of techno, dub and dusty old samples receives more exploration. Teaming up with old friend Erosie (one of Europe`s most talented and well known street artists), Martyn started his own label 3024 in November of 2007. First two releases by Martyn received an enormous amount of good press and DJ/radio play, and were followed by two impressive remixes by Flying Lotus and 2562Release no. 005 was Martyn's debut album Great Lengths - an exploration of his diversity as a musician, released on April 20th 2009.

As a DJ, Martyn has played illustrous venues such as Berghain, Fabric, Plastic People, Watergate, The End and festivals like BLOC, Mutek, Iceland Airwaves, Lowlands and Sonar. He is also a regular at Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder events.
