B IS FOR BROTHERS IN RHYTHM

Some uplifting house with defninite soul influences and italo-house piano from 1991 and Brothers In Rhythm.

 

Brothers In Rhythm were Dave Seaman and Steve Anderson. In addition to being half of Brothers In Rhythm, Dave Seaman was and is a well-respected DJ. He was also the first editor of Mixmag and a resident DJ at Shelley’s, the legendary acid house club that launched the career of Sasha. Steve Anderson now works with Kylie on her tours as her musical director. This relationship began in 1995. He composed the incidental music and ‘Overtures’ for her recent Showgirl Homecoming tour. He has also worked on the arrangements for the X2008 Tour. His first work with Kylie was in 1992 when Brothers In Rhythm remixed Kylie’s ‘Finer Feelings’ – which was her final single release from a studion album with S/(A)/W for PWL.

 

Despite starting as recording artists, Brothers In Rhythm are probably best known as remixers. They were always happy to take on work and lend a bit of house cred to pop artists such as Janet Jackson, Kylie, Pet Shop Boys and U2. The remixes are always recognisably the original artists (no chance of bending it out of shape) and with a postive housey vibe. If any of this sounds a bit sneery, that may not be far from the truth.

 

First single “Peace And Harmony” (1990) got them a contract with Island Records. It has an early vocal performance from Dina Carroll. This version was remixed by Sasha (real name, Alexander Coe). Sasha was a much-renowned (and lusted after) DJ and production figure in trance and progressive circles. Sasha became famous in the late 80’s and early 90’s for residencies at clubs like Shelly’s, the Hacienda, and most notably Renaissance. At Renaissance, formed a now-famous DJ partnership with John Digweed. “Such A Good Feeling” (1991) was the second single.
