Brandt Brauer Frick
Available languages: EnglishThe Berlin-based Brandt Brauer Frick make what they call "emotional body music," or lean techno with supple and primarily acoustic instrumentation, drawing from the work of minimalist composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass and electronic music producers such as Plastikman and Ricardo Villalobos. They made their full-length debut with You Make Me Real (2010) and have since released four additional studio albums. These include Miami (2013), with guest vocalists ranging from post-punk pioneer Gudrun Gut to alternative R&B innovator Om'Mas Keith, and Joy (2016), on which the group backed singer/poet Beaver Sheppard. BBF marked ten years together with Echo (2019), made in the spirit of their early work as they applied a decade's worth of exploration and experience. Friends Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer, and Paul Frick debuted as a trio in 2009 with the 12" singles "Wallah" and "Iron Man," released respectively on The Gym and Tartelet. At the time, the only other significant group achieving similar sounds was the Moritz von Oswald Trio. The !K7 label subsequently signed BBF and released their first LP, You Make Me Real, in November 2010. Mr. Machine followed in October 2011. Credited to the Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble, it involved a ten-piece orchestra, new versions of four songs from the first album, and a vocal track written by and featuring Emika. In March 2013, the trio released their third album, Miami, a set not as directed toward club DJs, with guest vocal appearances from Gudrun Gut, Nina Kraviz, Jamie Lidell, and Om'Mas Keith. BBF performed at a wide range of venues and festivals, including Montreux Jazz, Lincoln Center, Coachella, Mutek, Sonar, and Berghain. A wide-scoped installment in !K7's DJ-Kicks series followed in February 2014. The group's fourth studio album, the expansive yet concise and song-oriented Joy, was released in October 2016 with singer and poet Beaver Sheppard featured throughout. BBF returned in June 2019 with Echo. Primarily instrumental, its only featured vocalists were Friedberg (aka Anna F.) and Catherine Ringer (Les Rita Mitsouko, Plaza Francia).

Electronic - Verschenen op 7 juni 2019 | Brandt Brauer Frick
Ten years later, and Brandt Brauer Frick’s dance music venture is still going strong. While the surprise value has passed, and others have successfully taken up the mantle in their wake (Cabaret Contemporain, Magnetic Ensemble...), the German trio, whose originality comes from mixing classical instruments and electronic sounds, continue to find new avenues to explore - and just when we thought they had reached the limits of the exercise with Joy in 2016, which explored what lies between indie rock and post-punk.On Echo, Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer and Paul Frick go back to the basics: “It's about getting back to what we started off with. When we were starting out, we just had one microphone and a broken piano to make our first album.” Forgotten are the glorious featurings of Miami (2013); the only guest on this record is Catherine Ringer of The Rita Mitsoukis, a favourite of these Francophile Berliners (Encore). The rest of the album shows that the trio is still capable of bold genre-crossings (Reste) and moving melodies (Masse). And then there’s the piano that never steals the spotlight but always stays in your head. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
