Finally, after a week’s delay, Bodega BAMZ and The Martinez Brothers have dropped their collaborative effort, Sunday Service. BAMZ’s decision to link with The Martinez Brothers seems to be a good move for carving out his own lane to dominate the game, which was a natural decision after the artists hit it off after learning of their similar upbringings.
Sunday Service is cinematic, with interludes after every song or two. The interludes stand out with great instrumentation, giving those Spanish Harlem vibes that magnify the EP’s aesthetic. The Martinez Brothers bravely take on classic samples with “Bam Bam” and “Fire,” giving it their own touch that, coupled with BAMZ’s bars, make them stand apart and increase replay value. Hopefully, the three continue to collaborate and develop their sound.
It’s a busy day for BAMZ as he’s featured on a Lumidee’s newest record released today, Mars. The video has the two hanging around el barrio with friends, having a good time– basically exactly what the NYPD doesn’t want Latinos doing because they won’t let us have nice things. With Lumidee on the track, sampling Clipse’s “Grindin’,” “Mars” feels like the early 2000’s and there is nothing wrong with that– ’90s nostalgia is already gettin’ played out anyway. #TANBOYS
