Now that The Air Between Words is your third album, how do you feel about the relationship between your production and DJ mindset? I know this may feel slightly vague, but I feel you're one of the few I can readily think of that are as known and well liked for their productions as their DJing. Martyn: I think people regard me more as a producer than as a DJ. But it's kind of the other way around, because I DJ'd long and long before I even starting thinking about making music. I was DJing for about nine years before I even made my first track

THUMP: I find The Air Between Words a very interesting album, as it's the first of yours (perhaps due to chronology alone) I've felt really pull together your history in the Dutch and European house and techno scenes, and your life in the US. Having played for so many years in Europe, and seeing dance music explode in the US, what changes have you seen in recent years? Martyn: As far as playing in the US goes, there's been quite a lot of changes. I've been living here for five or six years. Martyn - The Air Between Words is released on Ninja Tune on June 16th. You can follow Lauren Martin on Twitter here: inedrums. THUMP loves bringing you the best music around: Listen to Lone's Brand New Album, 'Reality Testing' Listen To Vent, the Pounding EP From Newcomers Witch Cosmin TRG's Got a New Label, and Sounds Meaner Than Ever.

The Air Between Words follows 2009's Great Lengths, which took its cues from dubstep and techno, and 2011's Ghost People, which was more house-focused. This new LP, which features collaborations with Four Tet and former Hype Williams artist copeland, is being touted as yet another stylistic evolution for the producer. How did you come to release the album on Ninja Tune? I worked with the good people at Ninja before and they've always supported my music through and through. The last year or two they have become really prominent, putting out some great music and pushing the boundaries on the visual front so I'm glad to be able to put my music out with them. Where does the title come from? The Air Between Words refers to the universal force that connects every living being, like how the air between words makes a series of letters into a sentence. What else have you got in the works for 2014?

The Air Between Words fails to establish a coherent mood, perhaps the single most important task for a dance music album. And while Deykers is no mimic, it's difficult to locate a distinct personality in his work, a problem that also plagued 2011's Ghost People. The spark that Great Lengths' friction yielded is missing, and without it, he's just making some tracks. Good tracks, no doubt, but tracks that have failed to establish meaningful context

When the album was announced in April, Martyn told RA to expect a record "much more back-to-basics than Ghost People. And in that regard, the album works-his focus here is on dance-floor impact, and he's left no hi-hat crunch or kick-drum decay untweaked in pursuit of it. The combinations, though, are less than the sum of their parts. If The Air Between Words finds Martyn less interested in breaking new ground than perfecting the sort of 4/4 cuts so many others are toiling away at, then he's found a worthy partner in Copeland-her faded aesthetic and his perfectionism have pushed-and-pulled each other to a happy medium where both can shine. And that's really all that's lacking from such expertly assembled music: a bit more art to draw us into the craft. Published, Thu, 26 Jun 2014. Words, Jordan Rothlein.

Like Hyperdub’s Kode 9, Washington-based producer Martyn runs a label (3024) and specialises in progressive bass music. The Air Between Words - Fairly Good, Based on 10 Critics. This third LP is jumpy and beat-driven and banishes the memory of the dubstep scene he emerged from. Opening with the watery ‘Forgiveness Step 1’, it immediately changes pace: ‘Glassbeadgames’, which features Four Tet and is propelled by a UK garage kick, is claustrophobic.

Likewise, Martyn has always valued creating statements that stood independent of the genres they descended from by using the open space between their strict interpretations as freedom to fill in his own ideas. Coming off of the texturally raw, experimental ideas that dominated his 2011 album for Brainfeeder, Ghost People, The Air Between Words immediately strikes the listener as a more layered and deep album, in some ways harking back to the dubstep tracks that brought Deykers his initial notice.

  • Some decent house sounds here. Really nice 3x12 vinyl. Since the music is spread over that length a song or two should have been added to the 33 rpm sides to make it more full. But the 45rpm sides and then 33rpm on the other side are pretty sweet. Something I hope other albums that come out do. Combine the shorter songs on 33rpms and have the more club / house songs play at 45rpm. Nice for the djs. And the hardcore fans of the artist. Back to the music. This was my introduction to Martyn. I took a chance on this from a recommendation at the record store. And expensive chance at $32 for an artist I do not know but I like taking chances. Sadly this was very average. Production is very good. Some pretty good sounds on it. Songs seem rushed and nothing really standouts. 2.5 out of 5. Just a tad above average to what's out there.
