Who are the Flying Mojito Bros?
Producer/musician Ben Chetwood & DJ/digger Jack Sellen
How long have you been around?
Five glorious years, having met about 12-13 years ago.
Where are you based?
London, but we’re both sons of the Wild West country
How would you describe your style?
Americana Dance Music.
Do you focus on edits alone?
Nope! We’ve also remixed tracks we’ve got the stems for – be that unofficially or by invitation – including a fair few contemporary artists’ releases at their or their label’s request. Also our more ‘deluxe’ edits are majority all new, original production, sampling just a few choice parts of the source track.
As DJ’s what vibe do you play?
Depends on the vibe of course, but anything from slow, deep country funk originals and poolside grooves to 70s Latino disco edits and peak house bangers sampling classic rock
Highlight three tracks in the FMBs party playlist?
We have fond memories of the dancefloor losing it to our old edits of Southbound Again and Nighttime In The Switching Yard at the last Glastonbury, plus this great edit of Creedence Clearwater Revival ‘Fortunate Son’ by Andy Buchan always goes down sweet too
Talk us through your new release…
Like a proper bolt from the blue, Rudy emailed us one summer day saying he’d got to know our productions via the excellent AOR Disco blog. He asked us to ‘work our magic’ on the tune and was stoked that we already knew it and loved it well. Bit of a dream scenario really! Who’s next?
