B Major SA: Bjorn Martin (born on April 12, 1999), is a rising artist in the world of electronic music song. Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Martin’s love for music was inspired by his father, Michael Peter Martin, a professional music teacher and pianist who introduced him to jazz and downtempo R&B at an early age.
Memory Lane is a mix of Jazz Funk and Soul Music. It is a subgenre of house music that originated in the 1980s, initially fusing elements of Chicago house with the lush chords of 1980s jazz-funk and touches of soul music.
As the youngest of three children, Martin grew up surrounded by music and began playing piano at an early age. He quickly fell in love with the feeling of creating his own music and began experimenting with different genres. Martin’s style is characterized by his downtempo rhythms and ethereal melodies, creating a relaxed and introspective atmosphere that sets him apart from his peers. He cites artists like DJ Kent SA, Kaytranada, Tycho, Boards of Canada, and Bonobo as influences, but his style is truly his own.
