    DJ Esquire & Tim Martell present...Rarities 2 (rare-80s)

    The 2011 VMA After Party...from my couch!!!

    For the first time ever, House and Electric DJ Tim Martell along with Club/Battle DJ and Beatminerz/Vyzion affiliate, DJ Esquire have paired up to bring forward “Rarities,” (Rare-80’s) a mixtape of rare songs from the 80’s that were not released as singles or fell just under the radar as timeless hits.

    The inspiration behind the hybrid duo’s mix came to DJ Tim Martell by way of DJ Esquire’s online radio show, The Crossover, where he plays all genres of music. After hearing one of his 80s’ sets they started comparing their collections and the idea hit Martell, “I thought because we both have such a specific ear, that we should collaborate and do something with the tracks that we pulled.”

    “This mixtape was inevitable, we have been battling back and forth that one has more track or knows more 80’s songs than other for a while! People should expect to be taken on a great ride back to a time when music was fun when they listen to this fix,” DJ Esquire explains.

    The 63 minute project features songs that each DJ picked and mixed individually while transitioning it to collaborative blends.
