Hi, I'm Martyn a professional and creative individual who is using primarily Native Instruments Maschine MK3 & DAW plus integrated industry leading plugins to create unique, mastered audio tracks within the genres of house music and EDM. I produce my own music and would love to work with you in addition. I'm native English....
If you are in need of some modern beats, vibes and the best sounding music then i would love to help!
Maybe you already have vocals that needs accompanying music?
Maybe you simply need a four to the floor beat laid out ?
Maybe your percussion needs some attention and creativity?
Synths, piano, wind, brass and all other instruments can add to the vibe and uniqueness of your track and enhance or underlay vocals.
Let me evoke and deliver a vibe for your music project that you deserve !
For a number of years i have been a DJ (DJ DIADO X) and take influence from both the underground and commercial industry/scenes. You can listen to some of my own works to get a good idea of instrumentals, beats, ideas, grooves and musical arrangements.
Included on this profile is a track i produced called "Baby Take Me Up". I have other examples of music from my portfolio (Love One Another, Hands On My Waist, In The Front) which are readily available for streaming on my website and Spotify, iTunes etc....plus more tracks such as "Roll With It", "Gotta Get You Off My Mind" and "Take Me From The Darkness" all releasing in early 2022.
If you would like more examples please do ask for additional samples of tracks to demonstrate more instruments, synth loops, beat & rhythms, basslines, ambient vibes and more.
