The STAFFORD BROTHERS are the fastest growing phenomenon in Australian dance music.
As DJs, the Stafford Brothers have entered a league of their own, regarded as the ultimate fun loving, party starting, anything goes champions of the stage. In 2010 they were announced as the official support act for The Prodigy on their Australian stadium tour and shortly after were announced to be headlining the 2011 Future Music Festival alongside The Chemical Brothers and Ke$ha playing to crowds of up to0 50,000 in their native Australia. But the mother of all achievements came in the form of the visual kind when Australia’s biggest cable network Fox8 announced the premier of ‘The Stafford Brothers’, their very own reality TV show.
In January 2011, hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in as Australian dance music was taken to a new level. Camera crews followed Matt, Chris, family and management across Europe as they ventured into the heavyweight leagues of Ibiza and beyond. As the show’s ratings continued to hike each week, so did the realization that The Stafford Brothers are a dominant force on the move. The last episode of Season One aired to record numbers, and in that same week the boys boarded a plane for LA embarking on a 35-date world tour, which will see the guys on the road for 80 days. Hold onto your seats people, actually F#$k it! – get out of them completely, because the Stafford Brothers are coming to a dance-floor near you… What happens on tour, no longer stays on tour.
“We’ve been doing this for 10 years. Now that we have a TV show we get a lot of attention from new fans that think we are new to the scene. I’m proud of where we have come from and while it’s great touring overseas all the time, there’s always a special love for Australia.” – Matt Stafford.
Over fifty Stafford Brothers releases are available on heavyweight labels such as Ministry of Sound, Toolroom, Defected, Central Station, Armada, We Play and many more. In 2009, ‘Wherever’ (vs Hoxton Whores and featuring Frank Stafford on vocals) was their first single to garner high chart positions going straight to #2 on the Aria Club Chart. The track stayed in the charts so long it earned a place respectively in the Top 50 Club tracks of 2009, coming in at an impressive #17.
Since the success of ‘Wherever’ a string of releases have followed including collaborations with TomNeville, Jean Elan, Jason Herd, Dabruck & Klein and a forthcoming release (with ‘Tommy Trash’) has earned the attention of Roger Sanchez as a ‘Stealth’ selection for the European Summer of 2011.
