For most of the year, the Bronx–born Martinez Brothers have been traveling around the globe, playing clubs and festivals across Europe and holding down a Monday residency at Ibiza’s Circo Loco party. But this week they are home for the holidays, putting Output’s world-class soundsystem to the test with help from frequent tour partner (and fellow native New Yorker) Filsonik. Back in 2011, the duo followed a similar schedule, playing Manhattan’s District 36 on December 23 and bringing down the heavy, four-on-the-floor deep house bangers like “The Causeway.” This time through, they get help from their chopped remix of Green Velvet’s “Bigger Than Prince” and a handful of confederates from the Underground Quality label, who spin their own tunes in the enue’s Panther Room.
