This week on The Armory Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome Manchester’s Breaksjunky (aka Martyn King), a 2013 Breakspoll finalist for “Best New DJ”, to the 1s and 2s. Press play. Get down!
It has been a great start to the year for Breaksjunky, After being nominated in 2013 at Breakspoll International Breakbeat Awards for ‘Best New DJ’ and narrowly missing out, he came back even stronger to not only take the Award in 2014, putting his name on everyone’s lips, but also adding ‘Best Radio Show’ to the collection.
When Manchester’s Breaksjunky first stepped up to the decks in 2002 he had a simple ambition, to infect the masses with Big, Fat, Dirty BASS!! Since those early days he has only gone from strength to strength with a string of performances for some of the biggest names in Club Land, playing along side the like of: Grandmaster Flash, Plump DJs, Stanton Warriors, The Freestylers, Dub Pistols, Meat Katie, Cut La Roc, Elite Force, Far Too Loud, Gaudi, Dub Mafia, Slamboree, Monk3ylogic, Krossbow, Bad Tango & Justin Robertson to name a few.
Not content with just rubbing shoulders with the greats, Breaksjunky has made it his personal mission to play at all of the U.K’s most inspirational club nights and festivals. 2013 saw him play a string of stand out sets across the U.K and take to the stage at Boomtown Fair, Ravenstonedale Festival and being Honoured with opening the amazing, ‘Fortress’ stage at The Beat-Herder Festival.
As well as his own Radio Show, awards and DJ sets, Breaksjunky is also a chart success having his debut track “All That Junk” co produced with Zen Cartel, do very well in the Beatport Breaks chart since it’s release and has lots of new projects and co labs underway!
Most recently Breaksjunky has started to infect Europe & Asia performing in Copenhagen in Denmark, Bangkok & Phuket in Thailand and has more International bookings in the pipeline, he’s all about spreading the gospel of Breaks.
With the buzz still going after his current Awards, 2014 is set to be a another great year!!
