Voted as a Traxsource Top 100 House artist, Brown Sneakers has received worldwide support for his chunky, organic, old school house sounds based on infectious grooves. Hailing from Sweden, he has earned himself #1 and #2 rankings in Traxsource house charts with his work on Nervous Records and Strictly Rhythm. He has seen even more success with his releases on Toolroom, Freakin 909, Hotfingers and Armada to name just a few. Whether he is producing solo or in collaboration with artists like Roland Clark, Rowetta, and Defected’s Croatian duo, PEZNT, his steady flow of quality releases are regularly supported by Todd Terry, Mark Knight, Bob Sinclar, David Penn, and Low Steppa among other distinguished names in house music.
Brown Sneakers is wise well beyond the look of his beastly beard. Growing up as the son of a professional drummer gave him a solid foundation in soul, disco, and funk music from a young age. Regularly digging through his father’s vinyl collection for hidden gems led to his discovery that groove and soul were what stole his heart. From there, he fully immersed himself in all aspects of performing and creating music stopping at nothing. By the age of 13, he was already DJing for 1000-capacity crowds at local spots like ”The Galaxy”. Snowballing in success ever since, today he has played at renowned venues from Amsterdam to Miami alongside the creme de la creme of international talent. All the while, Brown Sneakers has worked tirelessly to hone the signature sound you hear today featuring Hammond organ riffs, Rhodes piano melodies, captivating vocal hooks, and above all -mad grooves that set the table for it all.
His mixshow ”Eavesdrop Sessions” serves as a perfect snapshot of his brand with hour-long mixes reflecting his overarching love for house music. Nevertheless, his music is best experienced live when paired with his vibrant energy. Drop in for a set of his at STEAM or LOCAVORE and expect to be delighted with big smiles all-round as he does what he does best, naturally, and from the heart.
Brown Sneakers is hard at work about to unleash his next batch of dancefloor weapons into the world as he continues to redefine himself as a producer, DJ, songwriter, and house music sensation.
