    The un-residential resident: Berghain DJ Martyn unveils his new album Dina Elsayed



We caught up with Berghain-resident DJ Martyn shortly after the launch of his latest album, “Voids.” He tells us about his musical process and the lengthy commute between Berlin and his home in Washington, D.C.

Martyn will be back playing at Berghain on August 10.
