Based out of the sun-soaked city of Miami, The Sponges have been bringing their blend of classic disco vibes and modern day production techniques to dance floors all over. Having gained support from established artists and rising stars in the electronic scene like Justin Martin, GRiZ, Zeds Dead and Jauz, it’s clear that their infectious sound is the prefect addition to peak party hours.

In February 2019, The Sponges released their debut EP Episode VI: Return of The Sponges featuring the underground classic, “Space Funk ’75”. After a #1 position on Beatport, a viral twitter video and over 500k streams, The Sponges found themselves at the top of the charts once again with the release of their 2nd single “Funked Up”.

Due to their incredible good looks, destructive beats and unbelievable creative innovation, the mysterious duo is well on their way to establishing themselves as one of the greatest acts to ever grace the sonic wasteland known as the electronic music industry. Prepare to donate a generous portion of your Spotify library to the dukes of the disco, the future of funk, the lords of lowend, the czars of certified bangers, the emperors of ecstasy, the rulers of the rave, the bassline bastards and the gods of groove as they gear up for an explosive year in 2020 with releases scheduled for Night Bass, Box of Cats & TMRW Music!
