Born and raised in the concrete jungle of NYC, Andres Martinez aka ANDREZ, is no stranger to the BASS. At the influential age of 15 he relocated to Colombia South America where his, now true passion for DJing began. While banging out the intense sounds of Latin inspired: salsa, merengue, and reggaeton, he was introduced to the drumfire sounds of house, and this is where his love for electronic dance music spawned. At the age of 20 Andres joined the United States Army and was stationed in Ft. Campbell Kentucky, neighboring, the city of Nashville Tennessee, whose dance music scene at that time was simply BOOMING, allowing Andres to keep his love for the electronic sound alive and real. In the year of 2001 it became as real as it gets, introduced to the BASS ridden, funk driven, dance creating sound of the break beat, Andres was instantly transformed. On his off time he would travel to Atlanta Georgia, hitting every vinyl shop, digging, and searching massive amounts of crates, thus expanding his arsenal of hard hitting BASS. He began DJing in the night clubs of: Nashville, Daytona Beach, and South Beach Miami, where he attended the infamous "Scratch Academy - Miami" (http://www.scratch.com/about/where-we-are/miami/). Eventually settling back up in Daytona Beach, this is where he currently resides, and proudly calls, his home. From setting up a mobile DJ business, to playing clubs and venues up and down the coast, he continues to aggressively support the dance music scene in every possible way. Andres has progressed with the music, and his raw talent is solid proof!!
A true soldier for the BASS, his passion for delivering solid, intense beats, will never die.
