Justin Martin has officially become the first dance artist to be granted the “official” title in his re-work of Strafe’s smash hit from the 1980s, “Set It Off.” For years, fans have happily received the remix — then an ID — during Justin’s set, anxiously wondering whether or not the track would be shared to the public. The excitement swirling the remix reached fever pitch, however, when it caught the attention of Strafe himself, who officially sanctioned Martin’s version of the piece. He joins the ranks of Jennifer Lopez, 50 Cent, and Lil Jon in this endeavor, which comes packaged alongside an even more energized club mix come October 12 on Dirtybird.
Such a milestone release calls for tour in celebration. Beginning September 29 and spanning throughout the rest of the fall season, Martin will be “setting it off” on dancefloors across the United States, from the West Coast to the East, and in between. To boot, he’ll be joined by a bevy of other stalwarts in the scene as well, including Latmun, Ardalan, Justin Jay, and his brother Christian.
