When you think about Justin Martin, what pops up in your head? Rhetorical question, it's obviously pizza.
He is noted as one of the most beloved producers in the scene and his music constantly speaks volumes with massive releases on Dirtybird and playing at pretty much every single festival across the globe. He's probably one of the most entertaining producers to watch during sets and via social media where he dominates Snapchat and Instagram with his hilarious pizza-loving confessions. He's been embarking on a world tour stopping in over 60+ countries and always on the move spreading his passions for life, music and pizza to everywhere he goes.
The king of Dirtybird and ambassador of pizza himself sat down to chat with us about something way more important than his music…
So, HOW DOES PIZZA REALLY MAKE YOU FEEL?
Pizza makes me feel better than anything in the world because it's for a lot of reasons. FIRST OF ALL, the first meals I had with my family growing up that I can remember with my Mom, Pop and brother and we would go to my favorite pizza joint in West Hartford, CT. We would go to Dino's – where they make the old Sicilian style pizza.
Favorite pizza of all time?
I think for just nostalgia alone, I would have to say Pepe's but overall is straight up CHEESE. But, my current favorite is Tony's NY Style in San Francisco. This guy has a bunch of different ovens, he's from NY and imports a bunch of different yeasts to make it authentic and it's really fucking good.
Worst pizza of all time?
Dominos is not pizza. Pizza Hut and Dominos both suck.
Burnt or under-cooked pizza?
If you had to pick only one topping to eat for the rest of your life, what would you pick and why?
I would have onion, jalapeños… I like it spicy. I like a little spice in my mouth.
Do you eat cold pizza?
Yes! But ,there is some pizza that doesn't even taste good after ten minutes even when it's hot. It's a shitty pizza if you put it in the fridge and it doesn't taste good. Cold pizza and hot pizza are like two different planets.
Do you think pizza could solve world peace?
I've actually said that before…
What's the most pizza you've ever ate in one sitting?
I've eaten a few personal pizzas before… any pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself!
What are your thoughts on vegan pizza?
NO THANK YOU. And no gluten-free pizza either.
To all the pizza haters out there, what do you have to say to those people?
I feel bad for y'all son.
