Justin Martin
Justin Martin
As the late Oscar Wilde once said: “life is too important to be taken seriously”, an ethos that Justin Martin is sticking with despite achieving soaring success over the last six years as a producer and international DJ. Justin initially pricked the ears of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record „The Sad Piano‟ on Ben Watt‟s Buzzin‟ Fly label. Everyone in the electronic music food chain got involved, from the A list DJs like Derrick Carter and Pete Tong that were playing the track, to the international music press that were raving about it. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bug‟s „Bugnology‟ compilation. Like someone that goes bowling for the first time and gets five strikes and a turkey, Justin couldn‟t really have hoped for a better entrance.

Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude Vonstroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records, appearing on its first four releases. Justin was soon ready to take flight, releasing a string of solo EPs which flaunted a very unique sound and garnered still more respect among fellow DJS and heavyweight‟s of the scene.

As well as his formidable arsenal of original productions, Justin is now equally known for his collaborations with his brother Christian as The Martin Brothers, producing such hip-hop influenced hits as „Stoopit‟ and „Dum‟. Justin has also made his mark remixing such bona fide classics as Radiohead‟s „Nude‟, Marshall Jefferson‟s „Mushrooms‟, and TG‟s „Revox‟, firmly establishing himself as the man to make big tracks even bigger.

Demand for Justin‟s skills behind the decks has skyrocketed with his bookings schedule basically crammed to capacity for the next 4 months. With bookings confirmed everywhere from Exit Festival (Belgrade), to Sonar (Barcelona) to Panorama Bar (Berlin), Justin‟s diary is reading like the dreams of a professional raver. Stateside he continues to be a regular fixture at the dirtybird events in San Francisco and beyond.

Further nods to his skills as a DJ and tastemaker are apparent in his growing discography of mix compilations, most notably his own „Chaos Restored‟ mix series on the prestigious Buzzin‟ Fly label.

Music journalists typically describe Justin‟s sound as „melodic and tough‟ with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth yet always with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor.

“I'm always trying to find music for my DJ sets that rattles sound systems, but still has enough melody and interesting texture to expand your mind even if you‟re sitting at home on a snowy or rainy day.”

In 2009, production wise Justin has a few EPs scheduled to drop on dirtybird, a remix for Freerange, and a DJ mix for Ministry of Sound‟s "Underground series‟ compilation. He remains as enthusiastic as ever to be involved in the scene. When recently questioned by Resident Advisor on what he'd be doing if he wasn‟t a DJ or dance music producer he just replied: “Wishing I was a DJ or music producer.”

By all accounts it‟s hard to tell him to wipe that smile off his face.
Christian Martin
Christian Martin
Since 1995, Christian Martin has been exploring electronic music from one end of the earth to the other; from full-moon parties in the deserts of California to the thumping, dark corners of the London club scene. Christian followed his love for spleen-rattling bass to San Francisco in 2000, where he met up with the now legendary dirtybird crew. The dirtybird BBQ was the brainchild of the four original members – Christian & his brother Justin Martin, and friends Claude VonStroke and Worthy. They had a personal mission to change the landscape of San Francisco house music by throwing an epic free party in the park, based on their new signature sound.
In 2003, with nothing to lose and everything to gain, Christian bought a massive yet necessary sound system on his credit card. This set the standard for a new era of die-hard dedicated DIY producers, all with productions based on heavy bass-lines, smiling faces and dance floor delights.
In 2006, Christian began releasing a steady stream of tracks, first collaborating with Justin under the “Martin Brothers” alias, as well as Claude VonStroke. The Martin Brothers partnership has produced such hip-hop influenced hits as ‘Duckface’, ‘Stoopit’, & ‘Dum’, as well as remixes for Ed Banger and Fool's Gold. On his own, he's released his own brand of bassy house music on labels such as dirtybird, Trapez, and Anabatic. His low end take on tech house has led to remixes for musical heavyweights such as Chromeo, Underworld, L-Vis 1990, and many more.
Christian's devotion to large scale bass has allowed him to champion the dirtybird sound out of the park and onto giant soundsystems at clubs and festivals worldwide. From Fusion (Germany) to Shambhala (Canada), to Coachella & Symbiosis (US), there's a constant demand for what he describes as “bass from the ground up.” In San Francisco, Christian is a resident at dirtybird's raucous quarterly party at Mezzanine; and also at Monarch, the newly opened marvel of a club. His new musical alias Leroy Peppers has recently roared to life, offering an even heavier take on hip-hop influenced bass music. Whether it be Leroy or Christian behind the decks, if your hands aren't clapping your ass surely will be.
In 1995, Christian discovered electronic music and sound system culture after attending an event by SoCal’s legendary Moontribe collective. Then after, the prophecy had unveiled itself. Fast forward 8 years in front of giant speakers from New York to London to Detroit, and Christian would act as the catalyst to what we now know as the Dirtybird BBQ. With the swipe of a credit card, he bought the original Dirtybird sound system.

Christian’s intense love for music vibrates through the speakers, floors, and walls at every event he plays. His sixth sense for what make the dancefloor tick, Jedi-like DJ mastery, and connection with the crowd are what make his sets unique and capable of healing. The proof is in the tears of Dirtybird CEO Claude VonStroke, who says that Christian Martin’s DJ set at the inaugural Dirtybird Campout was the only set that ever moved the boss bird to cry.

Thanks to his emotional and psychedelic take on house, techno, and bassy breaks, Christian has developed the reputation as an afterhours & sunrise specialist. He has closed Dirtybird showcases at such diverse locations as Shambhala, Holy Ship, WMC in Miami, and both Dirtybird Campouts.

You know when you’re on the dance floor during a Christian Martin set, and it’s this reason that Christian is a mainstay at world class events including Symbiosis, Do Lab at Coachella, Lucidity, Northern Nights, Secret Garden (UK), Fusion (Germany), Bass Coast (Canada), and his original electronic inspiration, Moontribe. The demand for his music extends internationally, touring in Australia, Germany, Mexico, Italy, & the UK.

2017 will prove to be Christian Martin’s biggest year yet as he launches a new record label & lifestyle brand – Trippy Ass Technologies. New music is on the horizon as Christian is set to release a slew of originals & collaborations with dance trailblazers Chris Lorenzo, Ardalan, Sinden & Mark Starr.What we can expect from Christian Martin can be foreseen as nothing short of mind melting.

“The reason that Christian always plays at the end… is because he’s the best!!” — Claude VonStroke, Dirtybird Campout 2016
Smalltown DJs
Smalltown DJs
The Smalltown sound is fun bass-heavy house music, combining the spirit of Canada's outdoor electronic music festivals such as Shambhala & Bass Coast, with the sound they cultivated at the legendary Hifi Club in Calgary (which they own and operate). The boys have released music most recently on various labels including Fool's Gold, Sweat It Out!, Mad Decent, Main Course, and more. They have played shows across the globe from the Mad Decent Block and Boat Parties, to Fabric in London & U-Hall in DC, and Bestival in Toronto.

With highlights that include appearances on Diplo & Claude Vonstroke's radio shows, a one-year stint in Las Vegas, the yearly Mountain Magic Tour with Christian Martin (of Dirtybird) and friends, and their collaboration with Shad & Wax Romeo "Boom Ha" being featured in the HBO show "Girls".

In 2017 they have new music on Twonk, Psycho Disco and Fools Gold, and a healthy tour schedule to support the latest releases, as they continue to push their forward thinking sound and positive message to the dance music masses.
