The Martinez Brothers, Rema & Gordo link up on new single ‘Rizzla’
Friday 13th May 2022 | Rob
The Martinez Brothers have joined forces with Berlin-based artist Gordo and Nigerian talent Rema on new single ‘Rizzla’, out today (13th May).
Underpinned by a skippy 2-step beat, ‘Rizzla’ combines the infectious dancefloor stylings of UKG with Rema’s slick, instantly-recognisable vocals. The track will feature on The Martinez Brother’s forthcoming EP, with the duo also set to embark on their first ever headline Ibiza residency at White Isle hotspot Hï ibiza, taking over the venue every Tuesday from 14th June through to 27th September.
Two of the most consistent and recognisable names in the world of house and techno, The Martinez Brothers were introduced to disco and house music by their father from a young age. While known for producing lean and effective club records, from their break out ‘H2 Da Izzo’ in 2012 to their 2019 ‘SaintLaurentYSL’ remix, their 2020 foray into Latin pop with Rauw Alejandro, Zion & Lennox and Mr. Naisgai on ‘Química’ shows their capacity to navigate effortlessly between underground and pop. Their most recent release saw them remix the Teddy Pendergrass classic ‘The More I Get, The More I Want’.
A US/Latinx artist based in Berlin, Gordo is the alias of Serge Garcia otherwise known as Carnage. He is best known for his releases on the likes of Red Curls, Work Them Records and Twirl Recordings, and is set to perform at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit on 29th May alongside the likes of Gene Farris and Kenny Glasgow.
Bursting onto the scene with breakthrough hits ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Dumebi’, Rema is one of the most in-demand artists around, receiving BET Awards nominations and having his music included on the FIFA 21 soundtrack. He released his debut album Rave & Roses in March, a 16-track release that features the likes of 6lack, Chris Brown, AJ Tracey and Yseult.
A daring collaboration that crosses genres and continents alike, ‘Rizzla’ illustrates The Martinez Brothers’ desire to constantly push things forward.
