Brookes Brothers

One of the most respected production partnerships in Drum and Bass, the Brookes Brothers have become a formidable force across the bass music scene. Known for their unique, soul and disco infused beats, the Brookes Brothers are one of the genres most accomplished production teams.

Formed of brothers Dan and Phil, the Brookes Brothers first began dabbling in production in 2002. After a few years perfecting their craft in the studio they released their first track in 2005, catching the attention of leading figures in scene, including Viper Recordings boss, Futurebound. Their first release on Viper Recordings came in the early days of the label in 2006 with the single, ‘Someone’ / ‘Promise’ (only the 8th release in Viper’s history at that point).

Following their breakout single, the Brothers worked on collaborations with a number of their peers and fellow producers (who have now since turned out to be some of the biggest names in the scene), including: Sub Focus on ‘Verano’, Culture Shock on ‘Rework’ and ‘Smoothie’, Futurebound on ‘Dawn Treader’, and Danny Byrd on ‘Gold Rush’ – making the Brookes Brothers responsible for some of Drum and Bass’ best joint efforts in recent memory.

The duo scaled to new heights with the seminal hit ‘Tear You Down’ in 2008. A blend of soulful vocals and funk infused bass, ‘Tear You Down’ spent 2 weeks atop the UK dance chart as well as 15 weeks in the top 20. Catching the attention of Sara Cox, who made it BBC Radio 1′s “Record Of the Week”, ‘Tear You Down’ underlined the duo’s place in the upper echelons of DnB.

Now fresh from the BBC Radio 1 playlisted hit ‘Loveline’ released to wide acclaim on Breakbeat Kaos in late 2012, the legendary production team has signed exclusively to the label they started out with, Viper Recordings. With the forthcoming track ‘Carry Me On’ (featuring Chrom3 on vocals) already selected as “Hottest Record In The World” by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, and exciting collaborations in the works, including ‘Get On It’ with Danny Byrd from his forthcoming album ‘Golden Ticket’, the most exciting chapter so far for the Brookes Brothers is about to emerge.
