The new EP from Brodanse
Available now on Beatport.
Brodanse is the musical partnership of brothers Austen and Scott Smart. Their first EP for Fresh Meat comes on the heels of their mood heavy “Fire Night” track which appeared on “When Bad People Cook Good Food Volume 3” out in January of this year. The two originals on this EP were deemed dance floor gold by FMR staff on first listen. The groove oriented soundscapes of “Become Someone” and “Around Us” sound modern yet informed by a house tapestry that runs decades deep. For two young gentlemen just getting started, Scott and Austen know their house music idioms. There is an assured cadence to the music of Brodanse, conveyed in part by a burly barrage of kicks, compressed snares and insistent basslines. Fresh Meat recruited a hard working young DJ in the Chicago scene, Max Jacobson, to remix “Become Someone” and after weeks of diligent work Max turned in what we feel is some of his best work. His thick, punchy version is built on a foundation of intricately swinging percussion, layered angular basslines, sprightly effects and swathes of subtle atmosphere.
