Beltran Amps Up the Energy With His Remix of 'Kilo'

Every Tuesday night in the summer of 2022, The Martinez Brothers punctuated their inaugural Ibiza residency at Hï with their season slumper, "KILO." Featuring the melodic flow of Dominican rapper, Tokischa, it was easily their hit of the residency. After finally releasing the slinky simmering banger late in 2022, the boys recently dropped a remix from Brazillian badman Beltran.

Keeping Tokischa's vocals and that smooth marimba-esque synth line front and center, Beltran does what he does best, amping up the energy by giving it a more forward drum rework and a bassline with a spitfire groove.

Beltran hit the top of the Beatport Tech House charts in 2022 with his #1 hit, "Smack Yo.'" Released on Michael Bibi's genre-defining (and defying) label, Solid Grooves, the track picked up widespread support from across the house spectrum with everyone from Gordo and Marco Carola to Solardo, Pete Tong, and fellow Brazillian brethren Vintage Culture, Classmatic, and Mochakk, all dropping it in their sets.

Beltran told Beatport that he grew up almost completely unaware of the massively influential scene in his native country. "I'm from a small town in the south side of Brazil, and because of that, the only contact I had with electronic music was because of my brother and cousins," he said in a 2022 interview. "As I grew up, I started attending local events/clubs and saw that we have a big and amazing scene here in Brazil, the people really get into the story you're telling within your set, and that is the best feeling for a DJ."

Even before having the honor of remixing the Martinez Brothers, the young producer's catalog was a rich offering. He debuted on Cuff in 2022 and later in the year also dropped his follow-up to his Beatport chart-topper, "Warning," on Revival New York.

With only a year of releases under his belt, he's impressively aligned himself with some of the best in the business. We can't wait to see what other tricks Beltran has up his sleeve.
