Tommy Genesis And The Martinez Brothers Give Us A New, Hedonistic Club Anthem

PFW might be over, but Tommy Genesis and the Martinez Brothers are keeping the late-night celebration going with their new single ‘PFW’. Tommy’s breathy whispers are overlaid with the hypnotic low beats and pulsing drums of The Martinez Brothers in a way that roars club anthem. Injected with the hedonism and pleasure typical of a fashion show afterparty, this is their second collaboration after the 2021 fan-favorite ‘a woman is a god’ track.

For Genesis, this is also her first song after being featured in Lana Del Rey’s album earlier this year and releasing her own critically acclaimed album ‘goldilocks x’. Born in Vancouver but based in LA, Tommy’s blur of genres and embrace of her sexuality is what led her to develop a cult following with her self-titled debut. The song name ‘PFW’ makes sense for the self proclaimed fetish rapper, who’s considered a style innovator and has had a very busy New York Fashion Week (she was at the Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, and Priscavera shows). Genesis was also one of Versace’s muses for their AW17 campaign and has been a Fenty ambassador since 2019. Rihanna even hand-picked and interviewed her for the Rihannazine, a special issue of i-D curated by her.

The global popstar is not the only major artist that noticed Tommy’s avant-garde rap and orgasmic adlibs; she’s since collaborated with Deb Never in ‘Same’, been featured in Charli XCX tandem track Bricks, and joined efforts with Jozzy for ‘Gone’, a track heard on the widely popular HBO’s Euphoria. Her alluring wordplay and subversive quirkiness also put her onto mainstream media, with her art featured on shows like Issa Rae’s Insecure, the film Assassination Nation, and Netflix’s Grand Army.

For NY-born and raised brothers Stevie and Chris, PFW introduces a new, exciting era in their eminent careers. Two staple names in the house genre, their four-to-the-floor rhythm has led them to play all over the world: from the Kappa Futur Festival in Italy and Fabrik Madrid to the III Points Event in Miami and headlining at London’s hottest show of last year. They’re stepping out from their home base in Ibiza (after a 10-year residency at world-famous Circoloco) and frequent collaborations with Latinx artists like Fuego and Rauw Alejandro to become even more international.

They’re not ending their love affair with the island that launched them into stardom though, continuing to play at Hï Ibiza a.k.a the voted # 1 Club in the World. The brothers have just stepped into the studio with fresher and younger artists like Eliza Rose, Mochakk, and (of course) Tommy Genesis. They even played at Dua Lipa’s Met Gala afterparty and LOEWE’s Paula’s Ibiza pop-u in LA last year. The latter is not their only connection to fashion either– they also designed the music for Riccardo Tisci’s iconic Givenchy years. For them then, PFW also proves to be an appropriate song name choice.
