Influenced by a range of boundary-pushing artists from Aphex Twin through to Jeff Mills, Martyn’s sound is a unique hybrid. Unrestrained by allegiance to any one particular path of production, his style simply refuses to be pigeonholed.
This genre-splicing, eclectic blend is carried over into his DJ sets, in which he carefully combines the subtly soulful with the downright dirty to produce the volatile chemical reaction of a truly banging hard funk mix! While living in Leeds, UK, Martyn promoted and was resident of 'Audio Science', an uncompromising underground dance night that was repeatedly torn up by explosive sets from some of the leading names in techno. It was through these nights that he grabbed the attention of a number of labels, including Glen Wilson and Mike Humphries' Punish, and later Ben Long’s Potential Recordingz. It was Martyn’s first two releases on Potential that earned him worldwide respect, scoring a “Top 5 Tunes of the Moment” review in Ministry magazine and numerous plays on international radio.
With major releases on Tronic and Recycled Loops as well as managing and producing for his own labels Tremors and Emetic, numerous sessions for BBC Radio 1 have followed, plus a two month reign with the top voted mix on dj-sets.com. Now DJing and performing his Emetic_Live and Classics_Live sets across the world, Martyn Hare isdefinitely one of dance music's rising stars.
