Welcome James Martin, a barista throughout the day, and DJ/producer at night. A New Zealander living in Melbourne, with his ears tuned into cosmopolitan time zone of what’s happening in Berlin and elsewhere, James likes it slow and dreamy. He says “the art and science of twisting out espresso and dropping bass lines are not too dissimilar. It comes down to taste.”

Earlier this year on the Nupacific show on Radio Ponsonby I mixed two tracks that I had never mixed before, blending them into a long transition. I felt something clicked. Something strangely familiar. Before I realised what was going on I found myself dancing at the radio station studio, alone, close to midnight. Driving home later on, feeling numb and victorious, the idea of an edit was born, an edit that would share the feeling of that particular moment.

Slow cooking. Inspired by Tosca and ECM jazz, I saw an imaginary motion picture before my inner eye when writing this piece. I don’t think it’s close to a master piece or anything, no way. For me it’s more about creative practice. Each track an entry in my process journal.

I love road trips, I shot this vid on a roadie along PCH 1 from San Francisco to LA on a crisp day. Can’t w8 for the next road trip, wherever it may take me.
