Palmistry on how his father’s death inspired ‘Afterlife’ and working with SOPHIE on Rihanna material
Martyn is a great Dutch DJ and producer. His work spans rave, dubstep and drum & bass with a chilly affection and humour familiar to anyone who has partied in a warehouse in the last few years. He’s taking over a secret London one on 27 April 2012 with the Hyperdub and Deviation lot, and shared his favourite “warehouse” songs, which you can read below, and stream the whole set underneath.
- Autechre Basscadet
Super influential track and video for me – lured me into the more experimental electronic music via MTV! I imagined this in the warehouses when I was too young to be in one myself.
- Oneohtrix Point Never Actual Air
Not a warehouse rave track at all but I would love to hear this hug a crowd in its iciness in a big space.
- Baby Namboos Dillinja remix
Mixing the melancholic with the fierce – Its what appealed to me in drum ‘n bass, this track encompasses it all
- Deep Blue Helicopter Tune
Another amazing drum & bass track – a true classic which should have crowds bobbing around everywhere
- Gerideau Masquerade (MJ Cole remix)
Absolutely loved this track when it came out – I was at a Twice as Nice party once at Complex – this was played, it was amazing.
- Efdemin Acid Bells (Martyns Bittersweet remix)
Im not keen on putting my own music in Top Anythings but I included this because it’d be a special moment if I would hear this on a large warehouse system.
- Paperclip People The Climax
For me the ultimate warehouse track. Not aggro, not sweet, just tough, rugged and vibes.
- Hieroglyphic Being Fingerprints of the Gods
Great track from an amazing and criminally underrated producer!
- Jan Driver Rat Alert
This has been played by many DJs – still does it for me when I hear it.
- World 2 World Amazon
I ended my set with this quite a few times – a true emotional raver, one of electronic dance music’s all time highlights
- Orbital Halcyon On and On
More of a deserted corn field & crop circle raver than a dark warehouse one, but a nice ending to a happy Youtube session!
