We’re keeping the flavours fresh this week with the help of a smooth riding disco mix from producers Shy & Brazen. The Manchester based duo slide us back into to an era where the flute was saxy for a 35 minute timewarp you’re going to love.
Here’s what the pair have to say.
“Good afternoon! We are Boris Barzut and Marwan Mounti aka Shy & Brazen. We’re both from London but are based in Manchester studying at uni (or trying to anyway). Our courses aren’t related to music but we love the art and try to spend as much time practicing our Dj sets and more recently our productions.
We’ve both had different influences in music whilst growing up but, when we reached the age of 14-15, dance music was always top of the list. Going out drinking and listening to dance music in a club environment produced an urge to be part of it. Since then we’ve been through phases of different styles. Drum & Bass and Garage were a major influence but House music has been the constant and the one we still bang out to date.
Production was always a clear way to go and its something we hope will take us further into cracked world of software and illegal downloads they now call ‘the music scene’. Not hating, we think its good that’s it has become so accessible and that anyone can aspire to the be the artists they look up to and listen to everyday. As a person, production has taught us there are a lot of hours in the day that are usually wasted and that you can use productively to make music.
We hope you enjoy the mix and thank you for listening.”
