Download Brandt Brauer Frick’s DJ-Kicks Exclusive, “Hugo”

bbf-pics-selection3 med

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.

Another Winner From Brandt Brauer Frick’s DJ-Kicks

It’s always a pleasure for us when an artist mines their community of creative contemporaries for custom, exclusive tracks for their mixes. Brandt Brauer Frick’s DJ-Kicks features five such tracks (as well as three new ones of their own) which they pressed up on one-of-a-kind dubplates in order to record their mix using only vinyl. Glenn Astro’s “How I Miss You” is a haunting number whose mood fits the yearning of the vocal refrain. The full mix, which the trio recorded in the DJ booth at Berlin’s mega club Watergate, is out on February 24th.

Listen to “Beroving,” The Exclusive Track From Breach’s Forthcoming DJ-Kicks

From his forthcoming DJ-Kicks this November, Breach shares his exclusive track “Beroving,” which means “deprivation” in Dutch. It’s a beautiful, evocative sound from the interface of house and techno, a world away from “Jack,” but every bit as good.

“Since ‘Jack’s’ blown, I’ve been gigging so much, just on the road all the time. My life is missing sleep. I’m deprived of making music and being in the studio. I put this mix together and did the track in such a short space of time. I’m deprived of time at the moment so it seemed like a fitting word.”
