Capitalizing on the ever-increasing technology of the digital age, MartyParty creates music at a rapid pace. When he's not touring, he's working on his next release or riding high on his latest offering. Interested in the evolving nature of electronic music, he seeks to add more elements of storytelling and classical composition to electronica; he calls this genre "purple." While it might be difficult to distinguish "purple" from other forms of Burning Man-friendly dance music, a close listen reveals MartyParty's more distinctive elements. While his songs are correctly classified as dubstep and trance, unlike his contemporaries, he is known for sampling and remixing unusual artists, such as Leonard Cohen and Sufjan Stevens, instead of the standard Top 40 hits.View More >
