Embracing spontaneity, Dutch dubstep ace Martyn woke up one bright spring morning and decided to put together a mix of all the songs that were floating around in his head. Aptly titled IMPULSIEF - the Dutch word for impulsive - the mix blends Miles Davis and The Pet Shop Boys with contemporary greats, such as Caribou.
The label boss of 3024, Martyn is somewhat of a living legend within dubstep and his career mirrors the success of the genre. This mix, however, is a move away from the music that made Martyn’s name and is instead a spontaneous collage of jazz, electro-pop and punk - as Martyn explains:
‘I do like spontaneously recorded moments, so I woke up, saw that here in the sleepy suburbs of Washington DC it was going to be a beautiful day, and decided to do a mix as if it were a spring afternoon radio show, with a few jingles and music from across the board that I love dearly.’
‘Contrary to my DJ gigs in clubs, I actually danced hard to these songs during the recording, and I found out there's no shame in knowing all the lyrics to West End Girls. Hope you enjoy the music!’
