Martin Knowles, better known by his stage name Emalkay, is an English dubstep producer and DJ from Birmingham.[1] He is best known for his 2009 single "When I Look at You", described by Clash as a "monster",[2] which was released on Caspa's Dub Police label.[3] Emalkay released his debut album, Eclipse, in May 2011.[4] Knowles describes his sound as '[...] a mixture of the usual dubstep tropes coupled with what I imagine Sean Pertwee's face sounds like when he is making all those terrible, grimacing expressions in the film Dog Soldiers.'[5]
