Young buck house heads Steve and Chris Martinez have spent half their young lives digging in crates and fiddling with knobs and computer icons to make and remake digital soul bangers. Here, the duo — both under 21 — give us three new creations, proving that depth, funk and straight danceability know no age. “Won’t Somebody” is a Latin-influenced house jam with a vocal loop that carries the smooth, pulsing pace. It’s a perfect lounge house cut that’ll have the crowd getting open early. Next up is the title track, which starts with an electro-inspired intro and a soft bass drum backbeat. Slowly, things build: a vocal “yeah” stab, hand claps, cymbal crashes, and then it all comes together for a swaying, drink-in-the-hand party. Finally, it’s “Broke in the BX,” a tribute to their Bronx home base. The minimal track doesn’t need to beat you over the head with hooks and huge melodies. Instead, it’s a steady climb with staccato keyboard touches, chiming choral vocals and of course, a funky-ass, snappy drum loop. Reared on a steady diet of disco and NYC house, The Martinez Brothers show impressive signs here that they’re part of the next wave of producers who will keep rocking Gotham and beyond.
