About Brothers, Chris and Matt began their DJ career in 2002 and already by summer 2003, they were booked to play for Goodgreef's new talent night, The North Gathering.

They quickly moved through the new talent nights to secure themselves main room sets at a number of different clubs in the UK, and they have been regulars at some of the leading underground hard dance nights in the UK, including Shock, Phazed Out, Oh My God, Neomenia and Goodgreef presents Native.

As well as been a massive success in the underground scene, Chris and Matt have appeared at some of the UK's leading hard dance nights, including main room appearances at Goodgreef, the North's number one hard dance event and Liverpool's legendary Garlands.

In terms of music style, they posses a unique sound that cannot be pigeonholed. It is packed with high energy Hardtrance with elements of Hardstyle and Techno.

Chris and Matt are now making a name for themselves with their productions that contain a modern fusion of trance and the harder elements to create their own unique sound.

Their first release under alias Substate (alongside Activa) on massive Dutch trance label Liquid Recordings, has gained support from the likes of Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Yoji Biomehanika and also reached number one in the IDP dance chart ( and featured in Mixmag's hard dance chart at number two (March 2006).

As well as having success under alias Substate they have had their track Control signed to Hardtrance legend Dave Joy's label Joyride Recordings.
