For as long as they can remember, Sean and Evan knew they were destined to produce dance music. Evan, who hails from Raleigh, North Carolina, has been teaching himself production since the age of sixteen and continued to do so through his five-year career in the United States Navy. Sean, from New York City, spent several years DJing in the underground scene before familiarizing himself with production. Though they have vastly different backgrounds, the universe brought these two creative minds together while attending the prestigious Icon Collective in Los Angeles.
“Fate” is the one word they used when describing the day they met at Icon. Since their debut of “Funk King” on Country Club Disco, House Divided has signed with Insomniac's IN / Rotation, Spinnin's Sink or Swim, Terminal Underground, and much more. Their tracks have received world wide support from artists like Bob Sinclair, Tchami, Matroda, even EDX, all while hitting the Top 10 in multiple genres on Beatport. Sky seems to be the limit for this dynamic duo as their sound has thousands of people dancing all around the globe.
