Martyn has always come off as a serious student of dance music, as well-versed in early electronic and modern minimal composers as he is in jungle or the hardcore rave that was much loved in his native Netherlands. He was among the first (and best) to blur the lines between dubstep and techno, and now, with the new Ghost People, he’s leapt into house, loosening up to make a dancefloor-oriented album that promises great things for tonight’s set. With Jonas Reinhardt, JDH & Dave P, James Friedman, Andrew Potter and Ulysses.
