BILOELA-born DJ and pro­ducer Brooke El­liott, whose stage name is Brook­lyn, has made it big, with her first sin­gle of­fi­cially re­leased to­day.

The sum­mer an­them, Fool­ish, has been re­leased on Min­istry of Sound’s Hus­sle Record­ings la­bel and Brooke said it takes you back to those “balmy sum­mer days”.

“Fool­ish is a house track with a mem­o­rable melody that im­me­di­ately up­lifts your mood and takes you to those balmy sum­mer days,” she said.

Now based in Mel­bourne, Brooke said the track was some­thing that could be played in both night­clubs and dur­ing chilled-out Sun­day ses­sions.

“When I started writ­ing the in­stru­men­tals for what was to be­come my very first sin­gle my mind kept draw­ing back to sum­mer­time, go­ing to mu­sic fes­ti­vals, par­ty­ing in night­clubs and back­ing it up with a Sun­day ses­sion,” she said.

“I re­ally wanted to write a catchy tune with a real sense of sum­mer­time am­biance that could be blasted in the night­clubs as well as some­thing that was easy lis­ten­ing while tan­ning by the pool or beach.”

Brooke, who at­tended Biloela State School and Biloela State High School, started her DJ ca­reer five years ago and has since claimed every ma­jor dance floor around the coun­try and toured the north and south of Viet­nam along­side soc­cer su­per­star David Beck­ham.

She said 2018 was al­ways go­ing to be about writ­ing her own mu­sic and achiev­ing the dream of re­leas­ing tracks.

“Fool­ish has been about two years in the mak­ing be­cause I kept com­ing back to it in be­tween other mu­sic projects; I am such a per­fec­tion­ist and wasn’t go­ing to re­lease it un­til I was 100 per cent happy with it,” she said.

Brooke is al­ready work­ing on her se­cond and third songs.

“I am con­tin­u­ally work­ing on new mu­sic,” she said.

Brooke will spend the next three months tour­ing to pro­mote her new sin­gle with the na­tional tour to be­gin this week­end be­fore she head to Asia to per­form and then re­turns to the Gold Coast in Novem­ber.

“If there are any Biloela High peeps who are go­ing to Schoolies on the Gold Coast, come say hey, I love meet­ing peo­ple who come from my home town,” she said.
