Biography

“It’s not our fault we were born after the Garage closed!”

Crank up the computer and Google …the Martinez Brothers,… and you…ll be directed to chatrooms containing comments like …Oh my god, can these two kids rock the house… and …They can mix their asses off…not to mention postings along the lines of …They are the cutest ever… Such accolades would be impressive for any DJ, considering the backbiting that is the norm in the online dance-music community, but when you realize that the subjects of those notices, Steve and Chris Martinez, are still in their teens, it. .s remarkable. And considering that the Bronx-born and -raised sibs are working in the world of traditional, NYC-style soulful house…a scene generally populated by relative graybeards…it…s downright mind-boggling.

Within the last year, the duo has been rising through the ranks by rocking some of the city…s top soulful house shindigs, including Shelter (a soiree that was born the same year as the 15-year-old Chris) and Danny Krivit…s 718 Sessions. They have further been invited to play at the longest standing soulful house party in Paris, Cheers in December and their names will be added to a list of DJ legends such as Timmy Regisford, Quentin Harris and Carl Craig when they headline Dublin…s Surface event the same month. …It was our father who really got us into this,… says Steve, who…s all of 18 years old. …He…s an old house head who goes back to the days of places like the Garage, but he had stepped away from the scene for a long time. Around three years ago, he played us a lot of the music and we both just fell in love with it…
