Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe make up the boogie boat that is PBR Streetgang. One of the most interesting and evolving partnerships to form through the infamous circus of Leeds nightlife. A collaboration that has earned them respect across the musical spectrum. PBR counts fans among luminaries such as Lindstrom and Greg Wilson to Clive Henry and Pete Tong. Their unique musical approach threads Paradise Garage disco to deep groovy house and tracky beats seamlessly, never failing to connect with the crowd. Over the last five years, their DJ partnership has evolved into audience enthralling sets which flow effortlessly from Ableton live to the turntables and back again. The duo have landed a much sought after and prestigious residency at the famed WeLove…party playing on the terrace at Space, Ibiza as well as playing all over the world, from The Garden Festival to the Warehouse Project and Renate.
Building on from critically acclaimed releases on labels such as 2020 Vision, Future Boogie, Hot Creations, Hypercolour and Southern Fried Records, PBR have come to Throne of Blood with three quirky and emotive house jams. The Achilles EP is an eclectic trip through deep house, moving from the piano-heavy “Achilles” to the narcotic vibe of “Name It Later” and the discoid “Trap Door.” Completing the package, Bradberry and Thorpe asked the Montreal-based producer Iron Galaxy (Turbo Recordings, Audio Culture, Born Electric) to turn in a remix of “Achilles.” Pairing the deep low end of the original with a whole new atmosphere and heavily psychedelic layers of synths, the Iron Galaxy remix is as invinsible as it’s namesake Greek demi-god.
