Born and raised in NYC, Martinez found his true love for house music while tearing up the dance floor at many venues in the NYC night scene during the early 2000's. Influenced by major producers like Victor Calderone, Peter Rauhofer, Abel Aguilera and Junior Vasquez, his passion to make his listeners dance - no matter where they are - drives his determination to be one of the top DJ/Producers around. Eddie's breakthrough into the DJ world began in Fire Island Pines, as a resident DJ at the famous Pavilion nightclub, where he spun with Dan De Leon & Chriss Vargass. He has since spun at various local NYC night clubs, bars and lounges including: HK Lounge, The Monster, The Highline Ballroom, District 36 and Pacha NYC.

Martinez has played several times alongside Peter Rauhofer at his popular WORK! parties in NYC. He has been spinning in different cities around the U.S. and internationally such as FRICTION in Los Angeles, MOVA and SCORE in Miami, "New York City Boy" at FLY Night Club in Toronto, Miami's famed Winter Party Weekend, DJ Paulo & Peter Rauhofer's "Tribal Madness" Memorial Day Weekend, 2 major NYC Pride events, CIELO and PACHA Night Clubs in NYC and The Anthem Party alongside DJ Abel for Vancouver Pride. He has also spun along with other big names such as Offer Nissim and Alex Acosta.

Martinez continues to create groundbreaking DJ club sets, powerhouse remixes and his wildly successful "House Sessions" podcast series has been consistently featured in the top ranks on PodOmatic and iTunes. He delivers a driving progressive tribal house sound that takes club goers into sweaty, sexy marathon dance floor sessions.
