In the ultimate genre-bending collaboration, the multitalented Jan Blomqvist remixes Carnage and The Martinez Brothers‘ 2020 hit “Together.“ While the original saw Carnage exploring a softer side of his sound fused with The Martinez Brothers’ driving techno, Blomqvist showcases his signature house style with groove-driven beats. Opening with soulful melodies, Blomqvist brings dreamy techno-inspired vibes to “Together,” playfully interacting with Elderbrook’s emotive vocals. The original version of “Together” was released last summer as the first single from Carnage’s forthcoming “Papi Gordo 2” album and included in several NMF Spotify playlists across the globe (incl. the Spotify’s flagship “mint”). With a fresh new take on “Together,” Jan Blomqvist is stepping foot from more underground culture into the spotlight.
As the leading man of concert techno, Jan Blomqvist stands apart from live and electronic acts today with his fusion of soulful lyrics and nonchalant vocals paired with cinematic refrain hooks and tonal atmospheres that beg for desert dance floors at sunrise. Having played over 700 gigs in the last 10 years, incl. the biggest festivals and clubs in the world, such as Burning Man, Cercle, Coachella, Tomorrowland, Balaton Sound, Untold, Lightning in a Bottle, Extrema Outdoor, and more. He has released on Stil vor Talent, Armada, Days Like Nights, Anjunadeep, Sony, and worked with and remixed and worked with the likes of Schiller, Booka Shade, Oliver Schories, Ben Böhmer, Solee, and more.
Carnage has made a name through breaking the rules and staying true to himself. The Hawaii-based artist established himself as the reigning champion of hard bass and trap music with early hits, later being one of the first artists to transition electronic music into hip-hop, rap styles, and now house music. Before launching his label Heavyweight Records in 2017, Carnage put out hit after hit such as “I Like Tuh” with ilovemakonnen, “Bricks” with Migos, “Down for Me” and “Guala” with G-Eazy, “Homie” with Meek Mill and Yung Thug, “Learn How to Watch” with Mac Miller and MadeInTYO and “iShyne” with Lil Pump. After taking a break from music and touring in 2018 to focus on his mental health, Carnage dove right back into it with his hits “Letting People Go,” featuring Prinze George, and “Wait For Me” with G-Eazy and Wiz Khalifa. In partnership with the RAICES foundation, the music video for “Letting People Go” raised awareness for immigrants at the US / Mexico border and retraced Carnage’s family’s voyage into America, as covered by TIME and dozens of other outlets.
The Martinez Brothers are known for their marathon 24-hour DJ sets but also for their hard-hitting MPC style sound with dissonant bass lines and chopped vocal sample style. They have graced the DJ booth of events such as EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Timewarp, Tomorrowland, Glastonbury, Sziget, Sonar, and Melt!, with residencies in Ibiza at Hï and Las Vegas as XS Nightclub. The duo founded their record label Cuttin Headz in 2014 and have also released on Crosstown Rebels, Defected, Warner Music, Hot Creations, Fabric, Turbo, and more. In addition to their respected music career, The Martinez Brothers are signed to IMG Models and have worked on campaigns with Givenchy, DKNY, 212 VIP, Fendi, Ray Ban and licensed their music for Supreme and Louis Vuitton.

Eliza Rose’s New Music Video “Pleasure Peak” Is Set In Ibiza
Eliza Rose collaborates with the renowned House music icons, The Martinez Brothers, for an incredible club jam titled “Pleasure Peak.” Best of all, it features Ibiza as the setting of the music video.
Furthermore, you can expect the sound of the classic Chicago House bassline from start to end. The pulsating beats, drums, and dreamy synthesizers also work their magic.
Last month, Eliza teamed up with the Martinez Brothers for a gig at Hï Ibiza, where they dropped this track for the first time. The crowd went nuts, it was epic! And they’ve also got this cool music video directed by Isaac Lamb, filmed in the Balearic Islands. It’s got vibes from iconic videos by artists like Missy Elliot, Aaliyah, Kylie, and others.
In the visuals, you’ll see these awesome artists having a fun time on the sunny island. They go sailing on a yacht, drive around in a Jeep, and eventually hit the club. This shows the different sides of a perfect day and night in Ibiza, just like how the song itself has both bright and dark elements.
Lastly, “Pleasure Peak” is a sexy cut you can enjoy during the last days of summer or on your next holiday.
