They have produced several releases from their earliest days at Objektivity, under the guidance of Dennis Ferrer, to collaborations with pioneers DJ Sneak and Point G (DJ Gregory). The year 2013 marked the beginning of their homespun NYC event series Mad Beats & Crazy Styles in conjunction with the events company ReSolute. The Martinez Brothers have also conceived a new record label, Cuttin’ Headz, which will be a home to their musical experimentations.
