the Dutch-born, Washington-based producer has undergone a metamorphosis – one that began with a medical emergency and has dovetailed into personal musical transformation.

Having narrowly avoided death after suffering a heart attack, Martyn re-entered his studio and began a process of reassessing the elements that drive him to make music: sampling, unpredictability, melancholy, sci-fi, polyrhythms, texture, ecstatic moments, Detroit, interlocking percussion and bass. at 9 tracks, ‘voids’ is musically stripped down to the essentials. It’s also a highly personal take on forging new paths forward in genres where he’s long been known for his production wizardry and innovation: post-dubstep and UK garage. The record is roughly split between these musical foundations, recontextualised with elements of Nyabinghi, drum ‘n‘ bass, and gqom to form snarling, bass-driven hybrids. Fans of scuba, kode9 and ital tek should check this out.
