Chris and Steve Martinez, aka The Martinez Brothers, two young men from the Bronx raised on their father's love of the Paradise Garage, launched a long-overdue event series in March this year. Inspired by the creative synergies of their hometown, the first party launched in their native New York and was, as expected, the perfect place to get loose. Now on Sunday June 16 they bring the second installment of Mad Beats & Crazy Styles to Barcelona.
"Mad Beats & Crazy Styles is a party we started in New York City as an outlet for us to do something a little different; we want to make a party where us and our friends can feel free and play whatever we/they feel; fusion live and DJ and not have any musical boundaries... and most importantly give people a good time. The vibe of the first party was amazing, freeform style, live elements and really captured the vibe of the old New York party style. We can't wait to bring it to Barcelona." The Martinez Brothers
