It seems rare that we get an electronic artist to play in the D that absolutely bangs it and keeps it going the whole set. Last night at the Works with the Martinez Brothers was one of those rare nights. If you are not familiar with the Martinez Brothers, check out our older posts, or go here. These kids brought the fuckin fire last night. I can’t think of the last time I danced through some one’s whole set, but these dudes had me on my feet the whole night. Absolutely flawless mixing and layering of effects that just totally blew my mind. It’s always refreshing to hear someone who’s not afraid to use the hell out of their EQ’s, which seems to be lost on to many DJs today. The music varied from house to tech with that dope New York flavor to it. And when they dropped “Dark Water” toward the end of the set, the crowd went fuckin’ bonkers. It just amazes me that some kids this young have got this much skills behind the decks. I was surprised that the Works wasn’t packed out with house heads for this, but the people who were there were enjoying every second of it and giving the brothers some mad D town love. Really this wasn’t a very hyped event, I just heard about it on Wednesday, and I’m fairly sure there were no flyers going around. Of course, I forgot my camera, asked my cousin if we could use his, and then he forgot his also.Luckily, he’s got mad skills with the camera phone, and hooked us up with these pics. Mad love and respect to everyone who was at this last night, I can’t think of the last time I had such a good time on a Saturday night. Let’s bring these guy’s back again soon!
