Phil and Dan Brookes, otherwise known as the Brookes Brothers, are drum and bass producers from London, UK. The two brothers discovered a love for the more soulful sounds of drum and bass around the turn of the millennium, but it wasn't until 2006 that they gained public notice.

History[edit]

In 2006 they surfaced with "Portal/Desert Island" on Danny Wheeler’s W10 imprint. This was followed by "Verano", a collaborative effort with Nick Douwma, otherwise known as Sub Focus. In 2007, the Brookes Brothers were exclusively signed to DJ Fresh and Adam F’s label Breakbeat Kaos. Their first release was "Hard Knocks/Mistakes", receiving major radio support from Zane Lowe, Pete Tong and the Trophy Twins, as well as staple drum & bass DJ’s such as Andy C, Grooverider, and Adam F.[1] In 2007, collaborated with another rising drum and bass star, Culture Shock, creating the monster track "Rework". In 2008, the brothers continue to assault the market with a host of big tunes such as F-Zero, Gold Rush, Dawn Treader and Crackdown. They hold residencies in both Fabric[2] and Herbal nightclubs, playing regular national and international DJ sets. Their self-titled debut album was finally released in 2011, under the label Breakbeat Kaos.
