Louie Vega joins forces with The Martinez Brothers and revered Salsa singer Héctor Lavoe this February for ‘Shut The Door’.
The Martinez Brothers have rapidly become two of the most in demand DJ’s and producer across the globe and here we see them make a welcome return to their Cuttin’ Headz imprint for one of their most accomplished projects to date. Collaborating with the infamous house aficionado and one half of Masters At Work, Louie Vega whilst the vocal additions come courtesy of Puerto Rico’s Héctor Lavoe, one of the most revered salsa singers in the history of the genre.
The ‘TMBLV Main Mix’ of ‘Shut The Door’ opens, offering a refined house feel fuelled by smooth chord swells and organic percussion as Hector Lavoe’s vocal contributions ebb and flow through the rolling groove. A ‘TMBLV Main Instrumental’ follows, stripping away the vocal contributions to the heady groove alone.
The Martinez Brothers up-tempo energy fuelled production then shines through on the ‘TMBLV Beats Mix’ offering their dynamic and intricate drum arrangement style whilst the processing the Latin vocals from Héctor Lavoe showcases Louie Vega’s finessed additions to the composition. Lastly a ‘TMBLV Beats Instrumental’ closes, again tipping the focus solely over to the swinging drums and snaking subs.
Louie Vega & The Martinez Brothers ft. Héctor Lavoe is out on Cuttin’ Headz 23rd February 2018.
