Podcast 125: Martyn

At this point, an artist like Martyn needs no introduction. Widely hailed as a leader when it comes to pushing sonic boundaries, particularly in the world of dubstep, we here at XLR8R are simply ecstatic that he's put together an exclusive mix for our weekly podcast series. Fresh off the release of his genre-hopping Fabric 50 mix, here Martyn gets even more schizophrenic, somehow assembling a cohesive listen while delving into classic house and techno, heady hip-hop, avant-garde beats, new-wave pop, and more—he even kicks things off with a little bit of chillwave. Refusing to limit himself to a single sound or style, Martyn always pilots a unique course—the fun part is following along on the journey.

martyn doesn't really have anything to prove at this point in the game, but i'm completely underwhelmed by his sloppy mixing in this podcast. it was so loose in fact that it prevented me from truly enjoying the programming. stick to dubstep imo, or try a little bit harder next time.

Absolutely hated his Fabric mix but this is special. Not a major fan of dubstep or whatever they are calling it this week, but this is classic - mixing styles not for the sake of it, but because it works
