The Martin Brothers - Mix Vol. 1 (Spring 2011)

Posted on the 17 April 2011 by Pelski
The Martin Brothers - Mix Vol. 1 (Spring 2011)Arriving all the way from sunny San Francisco, we can barely contain our excitement at having The Martin Brothers play the third Jackmode vs Pelski event at Crucifix Lane, under London Bridge. Of course, either Christian or Justin as an individual headliner would've more than sufficed. But we have both.
The Brothers will be rattling the mighty Funktion 1 soundsystem with their crunchy, bass-heavy brand of tech-house - a distinctive style (a now Dirtybird trademark) that utilises low 808 bass and crunked 909s to form an unusual techno hybrid. That's all very well, the odd hip hop influence, but what about ducks, houseflies, and werewolf sounds? Yup they don't exactly pull from a hackneyed pool of samples. Their solo outings as well as their 'Brothers productions are leagues ahead of the generic, by-the-book house bangers churned out by many of their peers.
Since their 'Martin Brothers EP' debuted on Dirtybird in 2006, they've produced a formidable collection of subwoofer-shaking Tech-House bombs together: 'Stoopit,' ‘Venus Fly Trap,’ 'Dum,' 'Full Moon,' 'Duckface,' & 'Steal Drums..'.
And now they've put together their first ever mix and, in anticipation of Jackmode vs Pelski on Satuday, London, they've passed it on to us as an exclusive. As expected, it's an absolute stonker:
