Originally hailing from Manchester where he stumbled upon clubbing in 1999 Martin Davies has been DJing since the early 2000’s. He enjoyed residencies at numerous bars and restaurants until a move to the Isle of Wight in 2004. He played a wide variety of styles and genre busting sets during this time; however the Balearic style has always been with him. He released his first 12 Inch record in February 2004 having only dabbled with production at that point. Almost ten years on and he now releases his first official EP of three tracks on a nu-disco, deep house and Balearic tinged lushleyness on Dirty Kitchen Music. His track Minerva went straight in at number 2 in the label's sales charts with Soul Shine in at number 4. He is influenced by the likes of Francois Kevorkian, Carl Cox, Moby, Groove Armada, Crazy P, Moodymanc, Todd Terje, Severhino & Marcus Graham. There are too many to mention them all here though!
He is now set to play the Electric Elephant Festival in Croatia this year and has his eyes set on his second EP release of more deep tinged Balearic house. He will also continue with his web radio residency “The Balearic House Sessions” at wight party radio every three months. This is also while he continues to experiment in the studio with more tracks expected and guest DJ appearances on various web radio stations.
Finally Martin is the head honcho of wight label records which is set to release mainly his own productions as well as some fantastic fellow producers on a balearic deep house / house and nu-disco tip! Check out the website at www.wightlabelrecords.co.uk
