Brother in Arms/BIA (San Francisco, CA)
Brother In Arms is crafting the soundtrack to your next evening and you don’t even know it yet. A natural collaboration between San Francisco-based friends/DJs/Producers J Boogie and Deejay Theory, the well-seasoned duo come loaded with vibes ready to light up nightclubs, beachfronts and fireplaces in 2014. Blending equal parts slowed house, deep disco, modern and classic R&B, their sound is something like Grace Jones making love to Todd Terje — and we’re not mad at that.
BIA saw their first endeavors on a limited edition 12″ via Whiskey Disco, as well as official remixes on Heavy Roc for DJ Equal, and Win Music for Eric Sharp ft. Anna Lunoe. Debut performances as a DJ duo have included support for Oliver, Classixx, Moon Boots, Poolside, Jimmy Edgar, B Bravo, Danny Daze and more. Their edits have quickly caught the attention of DJs worldwide, with plays on BBC Radio 1, KCRW, KEXP and WFMU. Previous works were included on David Heartbreak’s acclaimed “Moombahsoul” compilations, and regular DJ sets can be enjoyed at their resident “Night Moves” party with partner Papa Lu at Monarch in San Francisco.
