Four to the floor madness created by four guys and some guitars and keys... one of those rare groups that recreate electronic dance music in a purely organic way. Broadcaster is the fusion of electro-house and in-your-face rock that you've been aching for.

Biography

Combining elements of electronica, dance music, rock and jazz, Broadcaster has been swaying hips and turning heads on the East Coast scene. Forming in 2007 at St. Francis Xavier University, the band began as an impromtu jam session and quickly picked up speed, playing at local venues and opening for well-established acts such as the Jimmy Swift Band and Grand Theft Bus, and popular Halifax DJ Johnny Sleep Dep.

Broadcaster's sound and musical ethic is rooted firmly in the live show, and their sets promise to deliver driving dance jams, time-signature trickery, and sprawling soundscapes that leave audiences gasping. Broadcaster sets have also been known to be heavily influenced by crowd participation, with the band feeding off of the energy in the room to create extended improvised sections – taking the live show into uncharted territories.

Broadcaster's sound is filled with driving drum beats, thick housy basslines, otherworldly synths and razor sharp guitar work – Broadcaster takes their audience through sonic escapades and into another realm.

Broadcaster is currently working with producers Colin Crowell and Craig Mercer in preparation to record their debut full length record, which is slated to be recorded in the fall of '08. The record will set out to capture the balance of organic songwriting and electronic influenced instrumentals that encompasses the core of a Broadcaster live show.
