As the February 24th release date of Brandt Brauer Frick’s DJ-Kicks draws closer, the Berlin trio has shared another of their exclusive compositions from the mix. Compared to “Bommel,” another original which debuted in December, “Hugo” is slightly more reserved, though no less driving. Staccato synths evoke a strobe-lit dancefloor before giving way to chugging house grove laced with the group’s signature tactile percussive sounds.
Stream “Hugo” below. A download is also available when signing up to Brandt Brauer Frick’s email list. DJ-Kicks will be available in stores on February 24th, and pre-orders are no available through iTunes, Amazon, and the !K7 Store.
