TWOGOOD is a Dance Music duo residing in Bristol, UK. The pair produce bass-heavy music that blends genres including House, Funk, Garage, Breaks and more. Vocal hooks and glitches in texture have also been at the core of their sound for many years.
Tom Mitchell (Oxford) and Jonny Rhodes (Leeds) met in 2013 after becoming resident DJ’s for a student night at Leeds University. During Tom's first ever live club performance, Jonny somehow managed to break one of the CDJs, ruining the end of the set. It was safe to say after this that the pair did not get along..
After a year of being forced to hang out, due to their residencies, their hatred soon turned friendship. They decided to fuse their creative brains and make their first-ever music baby. It was clear that magic was in the air but it needed a name... In 2014 TWOGOOD was born.
In the beginning, the propeller hat-wearing power couple focused on jacked-up Funk and Disco edits. This, alongside high energy shows, led to the pair quickly building a name for themselves in the city. Residencies were soon secured at touring club nights such as ‘Good Life’ and ‘Cirque Du Soul’.
In 2015, they made their debut appearance at ‘Annie Mac Presents: Lost & Found. From there came sellout headline shows around the country, including at Leeds’ renowned dance haven Mint Warehouse. The following year brought the arrival of several hot bootlegs of a range of Funk and Disco classics and a fresh take on Sister Nancy’s hit ‘Bam Bam’. The latter gained millions of streams worldwide.
The festival shows soon started rolling in and TWOGOOD landed sets at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Shambala, Boardmasters and many more.
Having built an established repertoire of party-starting tracks, the boys then embraced their softer side with the release of ‘Raindrops’ on Kitsuné in 2018. The same year saw their first Beatport No.1 with ‘Be Funky’ co-written with Father Funk.
A year of international touring was to follow in 2019, kicking off with a Canadian Tour through six different cities. A trip to the French Alps followed and the ‘TWOGOOD TAKEOVER’ was a triumph across different resorts. The year was then brought to a monumental close at Burning Man festival.
It was a global pandemic that finally brought TWOGOOD’s momentum to a halt in 2020. However, this granted the pair an opportunity to explore their musical potential and redefine their sound and style. ‘Justafeelin’ was a byproduct of the first lockdown, which gained a spot in Spotify’s curated alternative electronic music playlist, Altar.
