Martyn – ‘Ghost People’ New LP Available to Stream

Pushing on from his Greater Lengths album back in 1999, Martyn’s second project maintains a refreshingly diverse exploration of music at 140 bpm. The Holland-born/Washington DC-based artist connects the dots from London’s bumpy garage to the mechanical grooves of Detroit, whilst holding a nostalgic sentinment that runs throughout as he titles the LP, Ghost People.

“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.”

Brainfeeder will release Ghost People on October 10th, 2011.
