The son of two internationally known singers, Ezekiel Martinez, or EZEKIEL, understands the balance between raw energy and well-crafted musicianship. With his new single “Drop Ur Ass,” the Monterrey-based DJ/producer commands your attention, with haunting chopped up vocals repeated over his hard bass and a hollowed-out production style.
Included in the Moveltraxx Da Movelt Posse Episode 5 compilation album, featuring the likes of B.O.B. and Lil’ Wayne, EZEKIEL’s track blends sci-fi synth lines with African rhythm-influenced skittering grooves that are equally entrancing as they are dance-inducing.
Whether hanging out with a bull-headed man in what appears to be an abandoned house or surrounding himself with stocking-clad women who may or may not be professional ballerinas, EZEKIEL’s video for “Drop Ur Ass” is a trippy event that matches the song’s eerie vibes.
