Brodanse are the latest contributors to our mixtape series, and they’ve given us a stunning mix comprised mainly of their own edits. The brothers have been hard at work in the studio for a long while now and the fruits of their labour can be heard on this brilliant mix, which gets an 10/10 for effort and 11/10 for quality too.
If you’re not familiar with Brodanse, where on earth have you been?! The brothers (Austen and Scott Smart) are the red-haired brains behind the label ‘Danse Club Records’, which was established in late 2012 and made quite an impact from the very start with a series of re-issues and accompanying big-name remixes. They have put on several successful Danse Club parties and recently debuted their live set at fabric, not bad going eh?
Originally from the north of England, Austen and Scott are now based in sunny London where they produce and perform (live) house and techno music with what’s described as ‘a signature groove and a deep, dark, tech vibe’. In just three short years they have collaborated with the irreplaceable Groove Armada on two occasions and remixed Kollektiv Turmstrasse, as well as picking up the much-coveted ‘Essential New Tune’ accolade from Pete Tong.
The latest EP from Brodanse, ‘The Ride’, has received huge support by Joris Voorn, Danny Howard on his BBC Radio 1 show and French icon, Laurent Garnier…. and now they’ve made us a top notch mix, aren’t we lucky?!
