Returning to Ultra Music for his third studio album Papi Gordo 2, Carnage teams up with The Martinez Brothers on their debut collaboration "Together," featuring Elderbrook and MIKE DEAN. A longstanding beacon in the trap sounds makes a rather uncanny sonic departure from heavy-hitting bass in his latest release, exceeding expectations from hesitant fans of The Martinez Brothers. The unexpected collaboration is the first single from Carnage's forthcoming album.
Challenging the confines of then trap genre that Carnage's foundation was built upon, both he and The Martinez Brothers each play to their strengths while simultaneously elevating each unique style to its peak. Smooth house beats swathed with percussive techno elements set the stage early as Elderbrook's soft croonings carry into a mirage of synths. A textured track littered with nuanced flare, "Together" is an unexpected, luminous triumph four artists in very different corners of music.
Carnage's typical bass-heavy sound sits back in "Together," standing as powerful testimony to the producer's new artistic breadth. Teaming up with some of the biggest names in hip-hop, pop, and electronic, his forthcoming album is the long-awaited sequel to Carnage's debut album, Papi Gordo.
The Martinez Brothers are two of the most recognizable global talents in house, techno, and club culture. Introduced to disco and house music by their father from a young age, they come from the roots of New York's legacy club, The Paradise Garage. While known for producing club records heavily supported throughout the scene and DJ'ing extended marathon sets. Since first hitting the road at ages 15 and 17, they have gone on to perform around the world regularly selling out some of the largest venues and hosting stages at the biggest global music festivals. Despite a global tour schedule, The Martinez Brothers have stayed true to the NYC culture that raised them. While fans of the brothers may have been wary of a major potential diversion in their signature sound, they can rest assured that this unprecedented collaboration reassuringly did not disappoint.
