The Martinez Brothers have become the latest talent added to fabric's roster, mixing the latest installment of the fabric presents series. A vibrant, high-energy affair that traverses the vast dance spectrum, the 23-track mix ranges from dark rollers to soulful vocals and includes some of the most respected names in dance music, with the likes of Chicago innovator Paul Johnson, Detroit multi-instrumentalist Amp Fiddler and New York house aficionado Louie Vega all having their music featured.
"To the entire fabric community, we love you." The Martinez Brothers said of the mix. "fabric is essential to the story of our journey as DJs and has remained close to our hearts ever since we played there the first time back in 2013. fabric always feels like home whenever we're in London, and we're excited and humbled to present this mix to you."
Alongside various features, the duo have also featured three of their own in the 75-minute offering. "Jam Joint" is a hypnotic, stripped-back groover whereas recently released "Mistakes", sees the pair delve into more tech-oriented waters. Finally, the mix ends with "Let It Go (TMB Alternate Version)"—a spectacular collaboration with Louie Vega.
Growing up in the hard-hitting streets of The Bronx, The Martinez Brothers were touring the world with dance music royalty such as Dennis Ferrer, Erick Morillo and Louie Vega before they had even finished high school. In 2014, the duo were crowned Mixmag's "DJ of the Year", becoming the only non-Chic cohorts to be invited by Nile Rodgers to contribute on the upcoming album, It's About Time.
