The artistic development of Brandt Brauer Frick from their debut album You Make Me Real in 2010 to this year’s watershed Miami has been thrilling to watch. The rigid formula of their early work (techno arrangements, acoustic instruments) has given way to a more catholic approach to music making, all the while retaining the tactile, polyrhythmic elements that make the trio’s sound so immediate.
The group’s entry to the DJ-Kicks series gives them the chance to further showcase their many talents; this time as curators and DJs. Wary of the sterility of some computer assembled mixes, they opted to record the mix live, during a daytime session at the legendary Berlin club Watergate, using all vinyl. As the mix contains eight previously unheard exclusive tracks (three new Brandt Brauer Frick productions and five from the group’s artist community), they pressed up special vinyl dubplates of material for the mix, once again prizing a human, hand-held aesthetic even while collecting an essential batch of edgy electronic music.
One of the exclusive new Brandt Brauer Frick tracks from the mix can be heard below, as premiered earlier today by Pitchfork. DJ-Kicks will be released on February 24th, 2014. Full track list after the jump.
We’ve already posted a couple of times about the 27!K7 Exclusives series, which has included tracks from DJ-Kicks alums Apparat, Wolf + Lamb & Soul Clap, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Hercules And Love Affair. We thought you’d be excited to hear that not only are those tracks receiving a limited vinyl release, but the collection will also include a USB card loaded with every single DJ-Kicks mixes !K7 has released in its entirety. That’s close to two full days of classic electronic music in one shot! In addition, the 27!K7 Exclusives box set will include all eight exclusive tracks from the series, special anniversary slipmats, and a limited edition poster. Copies of the box are limited to 500 worldwide.
