Growing up in New York, The Martinez Brothers, Steve and Chris, were deeply influenced by their father, Steve Martinez Sr., who was a regular at the legendary Paradise Garage. This iconic club was at the forefront of the house music scene, celebrated for its vibrant atmosphere and groundbreaking music curated by Larry Levan.

Mr. Martinez's experiences at the Garage played a crucial role in shaping his sons' musical journey. He introduced them to a world where music was more than just sound—it was a unifying force, a culture that brought people together. Through stories and lessons from those days, he instilled in Steve and Chris a profound respect and love for house music from a very young age.

This upbringing, enriched by their father's firsthand experiences and passion for the genre, set The Martinez Brothers on their path to becoming international house music sensations. Their technical skills, combined with a deep-rooted understanding and connection to the music's culture, were key to their rise from Bronx locals to global stars in the house music scene.
