"As a continual record buyer and beat seeker, Martyn is a beacon of hope through leagues of passion-less DJs and producers, the 'ghost people': plastic, hollow shells that focus only on the in-the-now grooves or keeping in line with trends. Martyn's inspiration stems from the old school mentality of connecting the dots, much like how Ron Hardy would tweak a soul track into a house groove, or Goldie sent processed breakbeats far into the future. Throughout his uncategorisable sound, Martyn gives nods to the electronic music that came before him: bringing back the energy of early rave, the deep builds of old jungle, the immersive and impulsive feel of an early Fran├žois K DJ set... One artist he's united with time and time again is Brainfeeder leader Flying Lotus. With Ghost People, Martyn pulls Brainfeeder out of LA and straight into the fluorescent bounce of West London's 2-step, massaging the darker edge of Croydon's dub roots, and D&B's otherworldly and sci-fi sonics, while simultaneously moving through the grit of Detroit's mechanic grooves, and into the freewheeling vibe of Berghain. Yet, all the while, he maintains Brainfeeder's spirit of wild experimentalism and -- as the title of his 'We Are You In The Future' suggests -- sense of futurism at the forefront, with each of the album's unpredictable tracks."
