Blackchild makes his first appearance on The Martinez Brother’s Cuttin’ Headz imprint as he partners with Tommy Naxty for ‘El After’.

With a string of big summer appearances for both The Martinez Brothers at Hï and Solid Grooves at DC10 in Ibiza, Blackchild is continuing to blossom as one of the hottest up-and-comers in the game. Elevating his profile to new levels, the Italian DJ/producer continues to impress as he crafts his infectious, groove-led sound, with stand-out EPs dropping on Hot Creations, Solid Grooves and his own LATEMORNING imprint over the past twelve months alone. Fresh from his recent release on Paco Osuna’s Mindshake, he makes another big label debut as The Martinez Brothers welcome him to Cuttin’ Headz to partner with vocalist Tommy Naxty for ‘El After’.

A sun-kissed, laid-back production, ‘El After’ sees Naxty’s resonant vocals on top of trademark Blackchild percussion grooves and vibrant melodies, before turning in a shuffling, rolling interpretation built for dancefloors across the ‘Dub’ as he switches up the focus with commanding brass leads meeting hazy late-night sonics.

The release also ushers in a new visual direction for Cuttin’ Headz, with Barcelona-based visual artist and creative Pol Barbero (@polbarberoart___) stepping in as the lead artist for the label’s artwork.
