Martin has also collaborated with Iggy Pop, Eyvind Kang, Chris Whitley, DJ Olive, Ikue Mori, John Scofield, Maceo Parker, Calvin Weston, Marty Ehrlich, and Min Xiao-Fen. Martin also sometimes goes by the moniker Illy B. The most notable releases as Illy B include the Illy B Eats series of breakbeat records. DJ Logic convinced Martin to record a breakbeat album for DJs and other producers to use and remix. At the last minute, Martin decided to place an insert which invited remixers to submit their mixes for a follow up compilation, Drop the Needle.

Chris Wood performing with John Medeski, Billy Martin, and John Scofield, 2007. Background information. Christopher Barry Wood. Boulder, Colorado, . Wood plays double bass and bass guitar. One technique he uses on the double bass involves using a drumstick as a slide near the bridge of the bass. He bows between the drumstick and the bridge to produce a high-pitched, warbling sound, similar to a theremin. He is also known to insert a sheet of notation paper behind and between the strings of his bass which creates a "snare bass" sound, an adaption of a technique devised on the double bass by Bertram Turetzky. Wood used the technique on the song "Paper Bass" from the album Friday Afternoon in the Universe (1995)
