In addition to three new tracks from Brandt Brauer Frick themselves, the upcoming DJ-Kicks mixed by Berlin’s trio of Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer and Paul Frick also features several exclusive pieces of music from their extended artistic circle. Which means the guys had to press quite a few custom dubplates in order to stick to their plan of recording the mix strictly from vinyl during a day-long session at the famed club Watergate. All of which goes to show you just how dedicated these guys are, and what a special mix they’ve created.
Daniel Brandt explains how he first connected with fellow Berlin-based producer Cosmin TRG below, where you can also stream Cosmin’s contribution to the mix.
“I met Cosmin through the Red Bull Music Academy, and we have been talking about various collaborative projects ever since. I was always into his rough sound and he’s a great DJ. That’s why we asked him to do a track for the Kicks, and the track he delivered was a perfect tune to have in the harder section of the mix. It also is the perfect follow up for the Bok Bok & Tom Trago track before it, to level up the energy even more, and mixes very well with the MMM track afterwards.”
DJ-Kicks is available February 24th.
