DescriptionAt a time when hundreds of cookie cutter tracks get released every week, the Martin Brothers are taking a stand. Justin and Christian Martin team up again on dirtybird perfecting the style they created back in 2006 - hyphy house. Anchored by greasy, dirty basslines and swirling, heady synths, hyphy house is the bastard child of Bay Area hip-hop and dirty house. It’s a cross between 20 inch rims and rocket boosters that could only come from the freaks in Oakland and San Francisco.
On the Rocket Surgery EP, The Martin Brothers draw inspiration from werewolf flicks, rapper E-40, 50's sci-fi radio and Bobby McFerrin. Dum is for heaving dancefloors threatening to buckle. From its opening synth line to its endlessly rising (and surprising) second half, this track bristles with euphoric momentum and hilarious vocal funk. Full Moon takes a mournful wolf howl and flips it into a full on Martin Brothers chopped melody line, complete with punchy lows and skeleton xylophone accents. The breakdown will have you reaching for your silver bullets. Rocket Surgery explores a complicated melodic struggle between its wistful main theme and booming sub hits. After a spirited battle through the buildup, the 808 wins! An avalanche of thunderous descending bass notes reign gloriously through the end of the track, anchored by gut wrenching growls and echoes of the departing melody.
