Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe met while record digging in Birmingham, UK. Recognizing a compatible taste by their pickings, the two decided to DJ together and soon were immersed in the circus that was early 2000s Leeds nightlife. By 2003, the duo had founded their own residency at Club Mint, named “Asylum” to reflect the evening’s maddening diversity of guests. Everyone from Jazzy Jeff to Ricardo Villalobos shared the decks with the duo, by now having settled on the moniker PBR Streetgang.
The duo’s remix output has been built up along the same trajectory as their originals, beginning with friends Crazy P and Maxxi Soundsystem, but soon growing outside of the UK dance world. This includes what Spin Magazine calls their “deliriously dancey” remix of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Ultraviolence.’ After jumping across the pond in 2013 for a debut tour, NYC label Throne of Blood solidified PBR’s conquering of international waters with 2014’s Achilles EP. In Resident Advisor’s words, the title track “sets of with a gait of a bagner, but it soon melts into a sun-dappled piano house charmer.” Ten years in the making, these “technically sound selectors”, according to Mixmag, have “secured spots at clubs and festivals the world over.”
