Having started the record label Needwant in 2009, Sean has produced an outlet that reflects both his musical tastes as a DJ and his ability to uncover and nurture some of the best talent in electronic music. Veering from deep house and disco to more Balearic inspired offerings; you have a label that isn’t afraid to be different while keeping a consistent musical quality throughout. Much the same is to be said for Sean Brosnan’s DJ style, never one to follow the crowd, yet always able to connect with the dance floor.
You need to look no further than his Future Disco compilation series for proof. As a collection that is now on it’s fourth release in just under two years, it brings together a modern day disco and deep house selection that has wide ranging appeal, despite it’s underground track list. If anymore accolade was required, the second album was named iTunes Dance Album of 2009, the first time a compilation had taken the title.
Sean’s ability to pick the cream of the crop from the hundreds of releases each week combined with over ten years in the DJ booth has made him Ministry of Sound’s choice for bi-monthly resident in 2011. At Ministry of Sound, still undoubtedly one of the best venues in the world, Sean resides alongside some the biggest names in house music.
As well as London residencies at Ministry of Sound and other venues, Sean regularly travels internationally and has played everywhere from Brazil to Bahrain showcasing his unique take on a house sound. Sean was also 2010 resident at Carl Cox’s Revolution, the legendary night at Space in Ibiza which broke the all time record this year for being the club’s biggest night ever.
Sean Brosnan the producer has so far created Sat Jam, a club cut that continues to be heard on dance floors across the world. He has just released his first Balearic inspired single The Islands under his producer duo monkier FETE which can be found on several compilations over the summer. This is alongside having compiled and mixed the critically acclaimed Future Balearica compilation album also on Needwant. 2011 looks set for even more productions from Sean and yet more attention for the Needwant stable.
