Straight Outta Sligo, Ireland and currently based in Berlin – Brame & Hamo have expertly produced some of the most effortless house music of the last few years via their eponymous imprint. Trants EP, the label’s debut release saw them head into a world of jacking Chicago rhythm, retro-futurist haze and early bleep techno and was premiered by Mixmag. ‘Trants’ is regularly championed on dance-floors across the world.
Their second release in February 2018, was the hugely popular Club Orange EP. All three cuts were premiered by leading publications including Mixmag and Resident Advisor. The EP sold out on vinyl in one day, hit the charts on Beatport, Decks.de, and was featured in many leading playlists on Itunes and Spotify; with both Mixmag and Red Bull backing the duo. ‘Space Dub’ also made it onto Maceo Plex’s fabric 98 Mix.
The summer saw them release their Limewire EP which included a remix from none other than Tuff City Kids. Again, the release continued to win over music fans globally, and won plaudits from across the editorial spectrum.
Whilst garnering a dedicated cult following and solidifying themselves as one of the most exciting break-through artists, Brame & Hamo’s profile across the globe is growing rapidly seeing them share lineups and support from the likes of Ame, Bicep, Denis Sulta, Laurent Garnier, Mall Grab, Nick Höppner, Optimo, Radio Slave, Soundtream, and Paul Woolford amongst many others. Recent highlights can be seen in their Worldwide FM Feel My Bicep and Rinse FM appearances all of which demonstrate their instinctive understanding of electronic music with selections spanning down-tempo disco cuts, straight up groove-laden house through to techno and beyond.
With their fourth release, the Celebrity Impersonator EP dropping in October of 2018, Brame & Hamo ended their breakthrough year with a three cuts that drew on influences of prog house, italo, trance and breakbeat. They were also invited to turn in a mix for Ninja Tune’s coveted Solid Steel Radio Show, and did a remix for Against The Gods on Dusky’s 17 Steps imprint.
In 2019, the guys have set their sights further afield, with tours of Australia, Asia, and Canada, and turned in a mix for Melbourne Deepcast. Brame & Hamo 005, the Pressure EP has been their only original release in 2019 thus far. But with their first releases away from their own label slated for the second half of the year, Brame & Hamo will continue to put Sligo on the map, but are taking over the world one club and festival at a time with their arsenal of dance-floor ready tracks.
