Get To Know: Brookes Brothers
I was lucky enough to talk a little with the widely talented 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.
Check out what they had to say!
What drew you to become an EDM DJ?
We were just two kids in love with drum n bass that wanted to make our own music. We hardly had any DJ experience before our first tunes got signed, but then promoters started hitting us up to book us and we had to learn the ropes pretty fast!
Who or what inspires you in your work?
Just the love of music really.
How was your EDC Las Vegas experience? What parts stood out to you?
EDC Vegas was incredible, playing the closing set was mindblowing and the ravers were amazing, such good vibes.
Matt Majesty is one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet, a pleasure to work with and mad talented. He’s got a very bright future ahead of him.
What is your writing process like?
It differs from tune to tune, but we generally both start ideas on our own and then finish off the best ones together!
Talk a little bit about the collaboration album with Viper Recordings and Bassrush that you were a part of.
Awesome compilation, Viper and Bassrush is a wicked link up.

What was something you got out of the collaboration album that you weren’t expecting?
I was always expecting a serious selection of high quality music across the spectrum of dnb so no surprises there really!
What song is your favorite song to play at festivals and why?
For us it has to be Tear You Down because it seems to have a special place in peoples hearts and always gets such an amazing reaction when we play it.

Later this year!
What are you most excited about for the rest of 2016?
Releasing our new album. We’ve got so much fresh music and can’t wait to share it with everyone.
What do you enjoy doing in your downtime?
Spending time with family and friends, checking out new music, movies, good food, love sports especially boxing and football.
Where do you see yourself and your music in 5 years?
Hard question to answer, but wherever we’re at we’ll still be writing music that we believe in and staying true to our sound.
