Martsman, real name Martin Heinze (currently based in Berlin and Karlsruhe, Germany) got into Drum&Bass around the end of the 90′s. Artists like Alpha Omega, 4 Hero, Sonar Circle and Squarepusher had a formative influence on him during the first years after witnessing a Paradox live set in 2001, his ever growing interest in Drum&bass evolved to the point where he began to produce his own music. With his affection for prominent basslines and stumbling breaks in combination with glitchy edits and bleepy minimalism, Martsman has developed a unique musical style which extends the current perception of Drum&Bass.
Debuting on New York based Offshore Recordings in 2005, he released on smaller as well as established labels like Alphacut Records or Counter intelligence in the following years. For 2008, tracks on Warm Communications and Hospital Records’ sub label Med School attract the attention of a steadily growing audience, also from outside the Drum&Bass scene.
Besides being Producer and DJ, Martsman is also an active member Hamburg based Label Plain Productions where he is responsible for A&R. Plain Productions was founded in 2001 by Hamburg based DJ, Producer and Promoter Laka. In 2005, after a two year break, it was relaunched as a netlabel for Drum&Bass, Electronica and Experimental music featuring German as well as international artists.
