As one of the founders of Disco Bloodbath, Damon Martin has gone from throwing small basement parties in East London to rocking dancefloors around the world in the space of a few short years.
Born in New Zealand, Damon moved to London in 2002 and found his first job in the music business working for Trevor Jackson’s legendary Output Recordings where he stayed until the label’s unfortunate demise.
In 2007 Damon launched Disco Bloodbath. The club was a quick success thanks to its unique music policy and he soon found himself DJing throughout Europe and as far afield as Japan and the Middle East.
During this time Damon was trying his hand at production via working on remixes as part of Disco Bloodbath for the likes of Franz Ferdinand and Little Boots and producing edits in collaboration with Ben Rymer as Channel 83. The Channel 83 edit of Fern Kinney’s ‘Love Me Tonight’ has come to be considered something of a modern classic and currently changes hands on Discogs for up to 60 Euros.
Recent years have seen Damon begin working seriously on his own music. The results have been two 12” releases on the Disco Bloodbath Recordings label and remixes for artists and labels including Mark E and Tusk Wax. Damon has also collaborated with Toby Tobias on the Mindgames project with a recent track featured on the London Housing Trust label and more releases to come.
DJ-wise Damon draws on a range of sounds including classic house and techno, vintage electronics, disco and italo, with plenty of musical curveballs thrown in for good measure.
