The Martinez Brothers, two young men from the Bronx, are emerging as leaders in the global house music scene. The guys have held a residency at DC-10 in Ibiza since 2011, and in 2014 their standing within the world of underground house and techno is solid and constantly rising – their DJ sets are full of energy, fuelled by the brothers’ in-depth knowledge and an innate ability to guide the crowd.
Their ubiquitously popular remix of Green Velvet’s “Bigger Than Prince” (Circus) was named the most-played dance track at ADE 2013, further showing their range as producers and delivering a dark, raw groove with cut-up vocal accents. “At their best, their beats have a quizzical, psychedelic feel, stretching loops of Donna Summer and George Duke.” This year alone the guys have been all over Europe and the Americas, they’ve premiered in Australia, and have plans for a tour of Asia.
Seth Troxler is one of dance music’s most recognisable characters, the guy with the big hair and the even bigger personality who doesn’t take himself, or life, too seriously. These qualities, along with his passion and seemingly endless knowledge of house and techno, have established him as a figurehead for a new wave of underground electronic music.
Moving to Berlin was the making of Seth both as a DJ and producer, later on, he was booked by multiple prestigious international clubs. Meanwhile, in the studio he has collaborated with such dance luminaries as Matthew Dear, Art Department, in addition to groundbreaking remix work done as Visionquest, who have remixed tracks by Tracy Thorn and David Lynch (yes him). He also began a new project with The Martinez Brothers – Tuskegee – aimed at shining a light on Afro-Latino American dance culture
