S.F.'s Justin Martin on Remixing Goldie, His 'Tough and Tender' Sound, and Dirtybird in the Park

With the release of his first full-length album, Ghettos and Gardens, and the accompanying world tour (his first — with stops in Ibiza and London), Dirtybird's Justin Martin is having quite the year. Warmly received by critics, Ghettos and Gardens has garnered accolades from high-profile outlets such as the NPR and the BBC, and showcases Martin's distinctive “tough and tender” sound. He recently spoke with All Shook Down about his drum 'n' bass past, making Ghettos and Gardens, and the annual Dirtybird in the Park party. He plays this Friday, Aug. 3, at Mezzanine with Claude VonStroke, Kill Frenzy, Worthy, Leroy Peppers, and Ardalan.
