True American Spirit(s) distilled in Massachusetts

Gone are the days of a good rum coming from some white-sanded Caribbean island. Now is the time when the cane juice comes straight from the original 13 colonies.

More Motor City Drum Ensemble than Joy Orbison, Disclosure’s production is foliated [...]


“Our goal wasn’t to create a label but rather to develop Bromance as a brand that would work as a guarantee for successful parties. Our brand is all about Music.” Words from Manu Barron, co-founder of the esteemed Bromance label.
