After much teasing and a delayed release date, The Martinez Brothers have finally released their new mixtape, 'Space Jams Vol. 1'.
Made up of 13 tracks, the mixtape includes eight edits from the duo's infamous 24-hour sets at Space Club in Miami. Amongst the tracks given the edit treatment in the collection are Janet Jackson's 'What Have You Done For Me Lately', The Fatback Band's 'Goin' To See My Baby', D'Angleo & The Vanguard's 'Betray My Heart' and Odyssey's 'Use It Up And Wear It Out'.
"One day while hanging out with the legend that is Danny Tenaglia, he said something to us that really rang true; to separate yourself as a DJ you have to make your own edits," the brothers have said of the release. "Over the years, it’s come to pass that some of those edits have become some of the most asked about tracks in our sets. So we wanted to share some of our private stashes with the fans and DJ’s out there. Because at the end of the day the point of the music is to share it. So we hope y’all enjoy and rock it LOUD."
The mixtape is available to download now via Bandcamp, and you can also listen to it below.
The Martinez Brothers are amongst the latest acts to be added to the bill for next month's Sonus festival.
