Sangers & Ra are the premier “Big Bass” music DJ/production duo out of Australia who officially came together in late 2009. The pair exploded onto the international dance music scene releasing a Top 10 Beatport dancefloor anthem as their debut release; garnering the support of international icons like the Plump DJs, the Dub Pistols, Lady Waks, NAPT, Peo De Pitte and Marten H∅rger; and have taken club and festival bookings all across the globe in countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria and the UK.
Since joining forces, the guys have been hard at work producing dancefloor bangers in the studio as well as developing their “Dex n Fx^2” DJ setup for the clubs.
Their debut EP release, “Nasty”, on Westway Records, featuring MC SirReal of Freestylers fame, rocketed to #9 on the Beatport Breaks charts in late 2010. They followed it up with the summer anthems to their 2011 and 2012 European tours, “Too Hot, Too High” and “Life”; both featuring N’fa Jones of the ARIA award winning, 1200 Techniques. Both tracks landed within the Top 40 and have attracted impressive feedback and reviews from Mixmag, Tillate, EQ Magazine and the Night Times (Birmingham & Midlands) to name but just a few.
In the past few years the pair have compiled quite an impressive back catalogue of remix honours. Starting with their much famed remix of Dub Pistols’ “Ganja”, on Sunday Best Recordings, which was released as part of the Dub Pistols’ “ReHash” Album; to their booty breaks remix of the Triple J rotation-favourite, “March On”, by N’fa Jones and their recent Trap inspired booty bass remix of “Punk on the Dancefloor” by Australian dance music icons, SonicAnimation; rounded out by their rework of the Plump DJ’s “Plump Yer Butt”, that started life as an unofficial bootleg until it was discovered by the Plumps themselves and given their official stamp of approval.
Their official releases and bootlegs have been played the world over, from Russia to London, and Germany to France by the likes of the Stanton Warriors, Lady Waks, Westbam, Adsorb, Plaza de Funk, Funkanomics, Maelstrom, Peo De Pitte and many more; and have aired on Radio Record (Russia), Zip FM (Lithuania), Triple J (Australia-wide), RTR FM (Perth) and Radio Metro (Gold Coast). Their notoriety has reached far and wide across the globe.
Sangers & Ra are also the founders of world-renowned radio show, “Big Bass Party”. Airing on Radio Metro 105.7FM in Australia (Brisbane and the Gold Coast) and available as an iTunes Podcast, the show delivers an hour of fresh Bass music every week to listeners in over 60 countries across the globe.
