Zouk Club Kuala Lumpur is kicking off December with something awesome for tech/house lovers.
San Francisco DJ-producer and Dirtybird’s head honcho Justin Martin will be injecting some much-needed party mojo into our music scene when he makes his Malaysian debut with his signature sound this Friday (4th December).
Martin achieved soaring success over the last 6 years as a producer and international DJ. He first gained international acclaim in 2003 through his single, “The Sad Piano”, on Ben Watt’s prestigious Buzzin Fly label.
The track made its way into many A-List DJ crates, with Derrick Carter and Pete Tong playing the track. The song was also being selected as a “sureplayer” by DJ Magazine, and being dubbed “single of the week” by Update magazine in the UK. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bugs Bugnology compilation.
Martin’s sound is typically being described as both “melodic and tough”, as his music contains both melody and emotional depth with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor.
Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude Vonstroke, he was naturally involved with the development of Dirtybird records, appearing on its first 4 releases. He is equally known for his collaborations with his brother Christian as “The Martin Brothers”, producing such hip-hop influenced hits as “Stoopit” and “Dum”.
Martin further made his mark remixing such bona fide classics as “Radioheads Nude”, “Marshall Jeffersons Mushrooms”, and “TGs Revox”. Among his growing discography of mix compilations, he is notably known for his “Chaos Restored” mix series on Buzzin Fly.
Firmly establishing himself as the next generation of San Francisco house, Martin has the skills to hang with the current masters. He garnered respects among fellow DJS and heavyweights of the scene through a string of solo EPs that flaunt his unique sound.
Having performed at mega music festivals such as TomorrowWorld and Exit Festival, Martin will be making his way to our shores for a one-night-only gig. Warming up for him are Xu and Axel Grrove.
