Our 73rd exclusive FACT Mix comes from San Francisco’s Christian Martin.
Martin is best known for his rampant DJ sets and his releases, solo and as part of the Martin Brothers, on Dirtybird, and for throwing amazing parties in California and beyond. Over the years Martin has refined a bassy, funked-up techno-cum-gutter-house sound; his recent interest in the effervescent UK funky and dubstep scene led to him headlining a recent Night Slugs party alongside Cooly G.
His FACT Mix draws all kinds of unlikely but sonically successful links between minimal (Und, Italoboyz), 2-step (Floatingpoints, MJ Cole), electro (Radioactiveman, Roman Flugel), dubstep (Benga, Untold) and, er, Yo Gabba Gabba.
