5 years of Bromance

bromance-logo-fond-noir

The end of a heavy hitting era. Yesterday morning, Bromance Records announced via Facebook that they will no longer continue. The cause as to why is to remain private, as wished by the Bromance family. Bromance Records was created by Brodinski and Manu Barron back in 2011. Throughout time, Bromance has been releasing heavy bass tracks followed by a dark and eerie nature that is very appealing. Many elite’s were part of this dark family, such as Brodinski, Gessafelstein, Louissahhh, and many more. Following up with their unfortunate announcement, Bromance has released an hour mix onto Soundcloud. I wish I could’ve got to writing this article earlier, but I was at work. During my shift I listened to the mix and it’s entirety. Let me tell you this, that mix was nothing but pure greatness. It truly reflected on the sound of Bromance. The mix was composed of tracks produced by the label’s artists. Although their sound may seem dark at times, the Bromance family has collaborated with many artists out of their style. For example, Brodinski’s “Brava” album has Atlanta rappers such as; ILoveMakonnen, SD, Young Scooter, Peewee Longway, and many more rapping on Brodinski’s wavy beats. Also Kanye West’s hit record “Black Skinhead” was produced by Bromance Records heavy hitter Gessafelstein. Their music and influence in many genres has been palpable. Their absence will be deeply missed. Cheer’s to Bromance Records, thank you all for an amazing 5 years.

Back in 2011 we had the opportunity to make the flyer for the debut show of Brodinski in L.A check it out below.

Win Tickets to CLUB IHC feat. Sinjin Hawke this Friday Night at the LASH Pop Up

CLUBIHC_SINJINHAWKE_IGDespite getting his #blessed hands on some of the dankyest dank beats we’ve all heard and loved, Sinjin has managed to deliberately keep himself from being well known by any of us. These days, Buzzfeed will make a 15 cat-long GIF list about you if you even end up in the same building as Kanye, yet somehow Sinjin has managed to produce the first track of West’s upcoming album without making so much as a peep. Google looked at us like “….wut” when we asked about it, so either that’s true humility, or Sinjin’s just not the “look at me” type. But regardless of his reasoning for occupying a decidedly behind-the-scenes persona, there’s no denying that the work he puts out is worthy of even the most crazed-out Japanese fan girl mob.

Hawke has made you bang out without you even knowing he was there – the grey eminence of getting ratchet. Check out some of their hits below.


Without a doubt the most high-profile collaboration yet, ‘Ye brought in Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke to co-produce the lead off from West’s new album. The slow, distorted, off-kilter track is equal parts 808s and Yeezus, but it’s tight enough that if you were watching the very weird Kanye West Adidas release video – basically a buncha models wearing Kanye’s clothes standing there like blinking statues while fashion people watched and whispered that the whole thing was just so Kanye – you may have noticed that your patience for this was uncharacteristically high. It’s because you were listening to Sinjin Hawke.

Possible new slogan: “Sinjin Hawke: he makes Kanye’s clothing interesting.”


You know things are about to get lit when your song gets put on YouTube over an artsy photo of a female model with a blog name/graphic in white. Hawke’s 2014 collaboration with Blaze features some of the best from the two of them: JB’s orchestral hits and harmonically rich textures combine with Hawke’s hard-hitting, off-tempo rhythms, creating something trappier than Blaze would make on his own but more radio-friendly than Hawke would release solo. Also, shout out to the first time we haven’t been bored by a pitched-up soul sample in years.

First of all, this song has rhythmic bed squeaking, which is dope. Secondly, yes, you read it correctly, that is DJ Sliink. Longtime IHC favorite Sliink and Hawke combine to make just the right flavor of club slapper, with booty rattling drops underneath but an atypical array of melodies, samples, and synths whirling about overhead like a nimbostratus cloud of turnt. I got bruises from getting twerked on so hard to this song. Thank you Hawke. Thank you Sliink.
