The Dj Mrtn (Sthlm Beat) and the drummer Pomp have worked together since spring of 2010, and their debut track ‘High’ was released august 2010. ‘High’ is a raving floor filler that was produced with one purpose in mind only, to destroy any dance floor.
Until september 2011 they called them self MRTNxPOMP but then decided to change the name to simply: MRTN
