A veteran of professional media sound design since the early ’90s, Martin’s been a music maker from the age of twelve, crafting beats using a keytar and ghetto blaster. In the early ’90s he designed music and sfx for games and other media for a software company while producing quietly in his small studio. Being influenced by the likes of IDM pioneers like Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Squarepusher, he began experimenting with midi, samplers, field recorders and analog gear, building an archive of sounds. While still exploring many styles from Industrial to Drum & Bass.
It was the sounds of Plastikman, Jeff Mills, Speedy J and the Detroit sound brought him to Techno. The growth of the internet music community allowed him to share his ideas globally, to a very positive reaction. Since 2012 he has had more than 24 releases. Martin is currently working on his 2nd solo EP, and his new IDM side project Nixon Helix. He is also developing his live performance for future sets in Detroit, NYC and Toronto.
