The Brookes Brothers return to Melbourne – 13th July @ Brown AlleyPosted: Sunday, July 8th, 2012
We are happy to announce that one of our favourite acts is coming back to Melbourne – the Brookes Brothers!
Known for their unique sound and style the Brookes Brothers are guaranteed to supply some awesome tunes and vibes to yet another massive party!
Friday 13th of July @ Brown Alley (Corner of Lonsdale st. and King st. Melbourne CBD)
Hosted by: MC JP & SK
Since their first forays into drum & bass production back in 2002 The Brookes Brothers have come a very long way, establishing themselves as one of the A-list production power-houses in the scene today. Signed exclusively by Breakbeat Kaos in 2007, the duo have gone on to chart-topping success and garnered recognition that most can only dream of within only a few years.
Their debut single on BBK ‘Hard Knocks’ b/w ‘Mistakes’ saw them off with a bang, picking up huge support from not only the likes of Andy C and Grooverider but also Zane Lowe and Pete Tong on BBC radio 1. Collaborations followed in 2008 with Ram’s Culture Shock and also with Hospital’s Danny Byrd whose joint effort ‘Goldrush’ received massive plaudits from critics everywhere. It was their remix of J Majik & Wickaman’s ‘Crazy World’ though the same year that did what not many other D&B producers have ever managed to do and make it onto national daytime radio playlists. Now rapidly becoming a household name the remix requests began to pour in and their glorious re-work of ‘Star Guitar’ was one of the many outstanding results.
Proving they were no flash in the pan the brothers then came up with their biggest release to date, the awe-inspiring, Radio 1 play-listed, ‘Tear You Down’. Spending 2 weeks at no.1 in the UK dance chart and a further 15 weeks in the top 20, even being made ‘Record Of the Week’ by Radio 1’s Sara Cox gave them yet another injection of worldwide critical acclaim that others will find hard to beat. Since then remix work for the likes of Norman Cook and Filthy Dukes has kept their name in lights along with a hectic global DJ’ing schedule. Now as the imminent release of their eagerly awaited debut album approaches The Brookes Brothers look set to reach the upper echelons of dance music and take the world by storm with their unique brand of soulful, future-thinking, dance floor drum & bass.

“Quarks”, “The Secret”, “Vandals”, “Lottery”, “Teleportation”, “Tarantino”, “Oakwood” show the band’s versatility and production quality. All those tracks got heavy support from the world’s most famous DJs of the electronic music scene: Pete Tong, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Rusko, Benga, Datsik, Flux Pavillion, Doctor P, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Kissy Sell Out, Annie Nightingale, Andy C, Chase & Status, Subfocus, Pendulum…
Back from their acclaimed world wild tour which took them around Europe, America, Asia, and Oceania over 4 months, the future looks bright and busy both on the road and in the studio as the band is putting the final touches on genre defying music for their debut album.
