For this special occasion, we are thrilled to feature the return of superstar DJ Eddie Martinez(2AM – 5AM)! Brooklyn-born, Los Angeles-based DJ & Producer Eddie Martinez has immersed himself in the world of electronic music for the last 15 years. Growing up and inspired by New York’s underground club scene, Martinez began his DJ career by playing in small lounges and bars across New York’s thriving nightlife scene, eventually making his way to one of the east coast’s most popular summer destinations, Fire Island, where his DJ career really kicked off.
Eddie started a residency at the legendary Pavilion Night Club at the age of 21. After a successful 3 year residency, Eddie begun a friendship, as well as mentorship, by Grammy Award Winner Peter Rauhofer and had become a resident DJ at his infamous WORK! Parties in NYC. This opened him up to playing at massive major events as well as spinning alongside his mentor Rauhofer, eventually becoming a resident at his infamous WORK Parties. Martinez took NYC by storm with his electric sets and remixes. Continuing to wow audiences and crank out quality tunes throughout the years, Eddie Martinez has landed major gigs around the world while steadily building his catalog. Since then, Eddie’s eclectic style has allowed him to capture larger audiences everywhere he spins, being able to read the crowd and maintain their attention throughout their experience.
His Movement podcast reached #1 in 2016 on the progressive house charts and is delivering music that is being played globally as well as topping the house charts on Beatport, with singles like “One Love” & “Believe”. Martinez recently released his 4th album, “Nocturnal Emissions,” a moody, salacious 8-track story of fantasy and lust. His passion to make his listeners dance, no matter where they are, drives his determination to be one of the top DJ/Producers around.
