MartyParty (Martin Folb) is a sonic enigma - try as you might to peg his "signature" sound, the South African producer/DJ's genre is decidedly unclassifiable. Whether he's producing commercial hip hop as Martin Folb or making electronic music as MartyParty, there is no mistaking his sound, rich, melodic and always emotional, an unpredictable roller coaster ride through his new production and timeless catalog. MartyParty's music is constantly evolving and shifting, often bringing together unlikely combinations of deep bass drops, trance, gleaming synths, crowd pleasing hooks and a hard hip-hop backbone to create a new type of beast altogether.
Martin Folb wasn't always the life of the party—for years, he was a computer programmer in Silicon Valley. He eventually switched it up, swapping software programming for Ableton Live to produce his own genre-defying music, as well as joining forces with Ooah of The Glitch Mob as the mega duo PANTyRAiD. The beat maestro has been busy this past year with PANtyRAiD's full-length sophomore album PillowTalk dropping this past July, along with touring it around the country. MartyParty also contributes regularly to his new Vice Thump column, "EDM 101",, and is preparing his forthcoming full-length album Synthetic, all the while churning out a slew of new edits and remixes.
In celebration of his forthcoming tour and album, the purveyor of the underground unleashes this irresistibly irreverent cut "Anthem of the Masses", a synth-driven track that simultaneously breaks through genres like a ton of bricks and weaves them together in sinuous harmony. Marty says of the single, "When I sat down to write "Anthem of the Masses" I opened up the synthesizer, made this sound for a few hours and this was the first melody I played on it. Was meant to be :) This is a synthetic anthem for the masses to appreciate the awesome power of EDM, and how several genres of music can come together into one song. Enjoy the song and try and catch it on a festival sound system where it truly was meant to be heard and felt goosebumps. "Anthem Of The Masses" will give anybody goosebumps - die hard EDM fans, people new to EDM, and everyone in between - I cannot wait to get the opportunity to play this song (and all 12 of the other SYNTHETIC releases cooking right now)".
