Get to Know Martyn Before He Plays at Icee Hot this Saturday

The debut album by Dutch-born, D.C.-based DJ/producer Martyn, entitled Great Lengths (released on his own 3024 label), was one highlight among the mass of electronic music that 2009 yielded, and it seems the innovative dubstep artist has been riding high on the wave of his record's success ever since. Well into the tail end of 2010, a mention of his name in just about any capacity -- whether it be a live performance, DJ set, podcast, new single, compilation track, remix, etc.--continues to immediately perk up the ears of bass music lovers.

So, if you didn't know already, let me tell you: Martyn is performing this Saturday evening within the underground confines of 222 Hyde at the monthly Icee Hot club night, and it is going to be absolutely nuts. If that means something to you, I suppose I'll be seeing you there. If you're still a bit skeptical, let me show you the way.

Below, you'll find a list of links that will help you get to know Martyn's sound (self-described as "music for a warm rainy day," which seems appropriate for S.F. lately), and the kind of tunes he's likely to play at this weekend's jump-off. But whether or not the interview, live recording, podcast, and the music video fully explain the tunesmith's brilliance is truly neither here nor there. If you like to dance to forward-thinking electronic music in a crowd of people with similar musical tastes, you need to get yourself a pre-sale ticket now. This event will definitely sell out.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
