Justin Bryte, 22 from Staten Island, & Slavo soon to be 21, from central Florida have teamed up and released new music to the public only in the last week and a half with their song entitled Brooklyn.
Both Justin & Slavo started out doing solo projects after getting started playing music early on.
Slavo got into football for a while in HS putting music on the side. He came to NYC for an apprenticeship at Chung King music studio and was exposed to artists like Mariah Carey and producer Scott Storch which rekindled his desire to make music his life.
Slavo said he would be at the studio til 3am taking in everything and learning everything about the studio environment.
I asked Justin & Slavo what inspires them to write a song. Slavo mentioned things written in his journal. Justin who attended Brooklyn college said the song Brooklyn is about a girl he knew there who drove him wild & got him into trouble. I asked him what kind of trouble and he said she was a Rebel. Justin said he wrote his thesis on Edward Snowden. He was into Psychology & Philosophy.
Justin got into Theater when he was younger which lit his fire for music. Justin met Laura Monico and Youtube vids took off, he said.
Justin also writes for other artists. He was just in L.A. with artist Macy Kate, 16 and the youngest singer to record with pop sensation Sean Kingston.

This is the duo’s first single creating a retro-pop feel with an mix of genres including dance, electronic, experimental pop, indie drive and alternative with use of synthesizer and a very light, pop sound sure to lighten your day or even your life!
As far as what message the band wants to send to people with their music, both guys replied, “Crazy fun” and to just “have a Party”.
