:: A perfect treat for ears of electronic music lovers!
Eindhoven-born and Washington DC-based DJ, producer and 3024 label owner Martijn Deijkers, better known by his stage name Martyn, has been releasing electronic music of varying styles since 2005. His full-length debut Great Lengths dropped in 2009, followed two years later by his excellent sophomore LP Ghost People on Flying Lotus American label Brainfeeder. For his third longplayer The Air Between Words, Martyn has now joined the Ninja Tune family and taken a step into a more dancefloor-oriented direction.
The Air Between Words was released internationally on June 16, 2014 via Ninja Tune. The set of ten tracks is available as digital download (mp3/wav) , CD and 3 x 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy/order your copy of The Air Between Words directly from the Ninja Tune Store.
The album is streaming in its entirety above via Thump, the electronic music channel of Vice Magazine. The album production followed no defined parameters or plan at all. According to the Nina Tune press release, Martyn simply experimented with purely analogue sounds and equipments which ultimately resulted in melodic sketches which began to shape the new record. Martyn explains: “Every album signifies a period in your life, and finishing one shows you something about yourself. Without the music being introspective, this is my most natural sounding album.”
Lead single Love Of Pleasure features vocalist (and former half of art pop duo Hype Williams) Inga Copeland, simply called Copeland on this one. The power house track Glassbeadgames sees Martyn collaborating with Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet, check it out in the album stream above.
