Marty Folb aka MartyParty - Born and raised in South Africa, found his way to San
Francisco 15 years ago as a software programmer. After discovering the music of the
west coast and wanting to “Africanize” it, Marty picked up Ableton Live and began to
learn the art of music production in 2007. He soon after released his first digital album
"Walkerville to the West Coast", named for the town he grew up in and a tribute to his path
to the US.
Marty got tired of how all electronic music followed the same formula so he set off on a
mission to re-invent electronic music and cross-pollinate it with all the other music he
loves. Marty's production can best be defined as IDM based hip-hop for lack of a better term.
