Brainfeeder will release the Dutch producer's second album in October.
Due for release in October, the record will come out on Brainfeeder, the LA-based label run by Flying Lotus. According to Martyn himself, it's a less intimate affair than his first LP, Great Lengths, which he describes as "very personal."
"A lot of the music and the themes behind [Great Lengths] were taken out of my daily life: my sorrows and my melancholy," he says. "For this album, I chose things that are further away from me: the Ghost People theme. There are references to DJing in general. Not the jet-set DJ life, but the old Paradise Garage DJ life, where people want to share and play the music they really love, regardless of if it's trendy. Nothing fancy or flashy. Just back to the roots."
Stylistically, the album continues on the same tack as Martyn's past releases, weaving between dubstep, funky, house and techno. It shows him teaming up once again with Erosie, the go-to visual artist for Martyn's label, 3024 (not to mention RA's recent X party in Sao Paulo). In addition to the cover art, Erosie has devised visuals to accompany Martyn's upcoming live sets, dates for which have yet to be confirmed.
The album will be preceded by a 12-inch, Masks / Viper, due out on Brainfeeder next Monday. A guest appearance comes from one of bass music's favorite vocalists, Spaceape.
