Brandt Brauer Frick


Sometimes what you don't do is as important as what you do. Brandt Brauer Frick have made name for themselves producing techno without the technology, using classical instruments in preference to synthesizers and computers. It's a negative that's had positive results. On the Berlin trios third album ‘Miami', it's again what Brandt Brauer Frick are not doing that is once again important: they aren't slavishly following the formula of its two predecessors. "Mr Machine (2011's sophomore album) the record made with the (ten piece classical) ensemble, especially was very planned and strict," they say. "We wanted to be more spontaneous this time. We wanted to do something very different, more dark and more rough. We wanted to write songs rather than tracks that slowly evolve."

Another major difference is the appearance of a number of guest vocalists who had a big influence on the direction the album took. There are appearances from Jamie Lidell, Om'mas Keith (Grammy nominated producer of Frank Ocean's ‘Channel Orange', Kanye West, Jay Z), Gudrun Gut (Einsturzende Neubauten and German punk band Malaria!), Erika Janunger and Russian DJ and producer Nina Kraviz.

The new album is accompanied by a new stripped down live show - no ensemble this time, just the three protagonists and a specially built stage set. The visuals will be created by Brandt Brauer Frick affiliated production company Park Bennett, who make all of the bands videos and also came up with the overall visual concept for the album inspired by Fluxus art of the '60s
