Dennis Ferrer and the Martinez Brothers Form NeuWave Renegades
- Words: Glenn Jackson
House veteran and head of the Objektivity imprint, Dennis Ferrer, has announced that he will be joining forces with NYC's Martinez Brothers to form a new crew that will exist under the name NeuWave Renegades. Inspired by the hip-hop crews of days past, NeuWave Renegades will be a collective of DJs and producers that centers around Ferrer and the Martinez Brothers but could include any number of friends and collaborators. In traditional hip-hop crew fashion, performances under the name will incorporate a number of different contributors depending on the night and as Ferrer says, "it might be the brothers, it might be me, you don't know what the fuck you're gonna get. It's not about the individual, it's about the concept." As long as the concept has something to do with pumping out the tasty mix of soulful and techy house its members have come to be known for, then we really can't disagree. The crew has a 12" in the works for later this year and a few appearances planned in the coming months along with an Ibiza residency. Ferrer shared more of the NeuWave Renegades story and plans with Resident Advisor in a short interview which you can read here.
