Who would have thought a combination of knowledge and experience crossed with raw talent and musical ability could combine into such a successful partnership, especially in little old Adelaide, Australia. In a very short period of time “Dirt Cheap” aka Dj Brendon and Darryl Mitchell have taken the Aussie dance music scene by storm.
Dj Brendon has been a well recognised name on the national circuit having been a part of the countries dance movement for over two decades now, with a Ministry Of Sound cd under the belt, countless awards at both state and national level, a long standing radio show broadcast all over Australia and currently promoting one of the biggest club nights going around at the moment.
Darryl at only 20 years of age brings a classically trained ear to the team and a sponge like mentality when it comes to production techniques and musical influence. His uncanny ease and pace in the studio makes for quantity as well as quality which allows “Dirt Cheap” even with their separate hectic working lives to knock out tracks with relative consistency.
The guys met at Adelaide’s HQ nightclub in 2011 as Darryl, a budding bedroom producer, persuaded Brendon to listen to his then early reworks of popular tunes of the moment. Seeing the untapped potential Brendon approached the rookie to get together and work on a remix for Mobin Master’s “In My House” as part of a competition. The mix ended up winning thus the partnership was born.
From that point on it has been a relentless stream of remixes for artists like Vandalism, The Only, The Stafford Brothers, Dj Kronic, Bombs Away, Rave Radio and Mobin Master. Most charting well in the Aria Club Charts week after week. Their first international remix is destined to drop soon for Stefan Dabruck of Dabruck & Klein fame to be released through Armada, superstar dj Armin Van Buurens label.
While the originals pile up on the hard drive their first is set to be with all round MC legend and Aria award winner Seany B. Certainly exciting times ahead for the production duo, so watch this space. “Dirt Cheap” are only at the beginning of the journey and set to make waves both in Australia and overseas.
