283 – Brodanse
Brodanse is pairing of London based brothers Austen and Scott Smart. They started DJ’ing in 2007 after they made a mashup and gave it to a club as a ‘demo’, the owner liked and despite not really knowing how to DJ, they had their first gig.
In 2011 Brodanse was officially formed, after five years of learning the ropes of production and they’ve never looked back since. Turning in knock-out originals, remixes and now they’ve started the highly reputable Danse Club Records the future is looking extremely bright for the pair.
