Martyn Boswell aka MartynB is a DJ/Producer from Wellingborough, UK. He has a new album out called Anima and here he is describing it in his own words.
“Like a lot of people, I had plan’s at the start of the year – for me; it was to write and release an album, get some DJ bookings and amongst the usual things, a little getaway with my girlfriend and having good times with family and friends.
Lets not mention the “C” word.
Then the decision whether to continue or to put on hold the idea of an album. The show must go on as they say and “I never give up!” I am extremely lucky to have a home studio. With the extra time on my hands, I’ve been able to dedicate more time to pursuing my passion.
Not forgetting however, what circumstances we all found ourselves living in. In a lot of situations, seeing the best in human nature with people putting there lives at risk to protect and care for us.
This put things into perspective and in a way shaped the sound of the album. I wanted to make something to make people feel good and evoke a positive feeling. The Album is inspired by human nature. I wanted to choose a simple word people could connect to, so I picked Anima, which means soul.
The track Opus Cortex has a quote inspired by Alan Watts, which talks about how we are all “miracles of life” , this is something that I think we forget. We often forget the simple things in life.
I hope people enjoy the uplifting, summery vibe, with plenty of melodies and hooks.” MartynB
