Les concepts et les idées fusent pour le trio berlinois Brandt Brauer Frick. Remarqués dès leurs débuts pour leur approche classique, créant des compositions techno à partir d’instruments acoustiques, la production de Brandt Brauer Frick se caractérise par une créativité sans relâche.

Aujourd’hui, pour leur premier single depuis plus d’un an, « Holy Night », le groupe ajoute un élément nouveau : la voix de Beaver Sheppard, qui chante sur deux nouvelles compositions. « On a rencontré Beaver au Mutek de Montréal et on a eu un coup de foudre », dit le groupe. « Ces deux chansons font partie de la première série enregistrées avec Beaver en 2013 ».

La collaboration avec Sheppard fonctionne à merveille, ajoutant une note légèrement mélancolique aux grosses percussions des arrangements de Brandt Brauer Frick. Les premiers fruits de cette collaboration, ‘Holy Night’ et ‘Poor Magic’ forment ce nouvel EP, agrémenté d’un remixe de Tom Trago.Un album est en préparation.

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. The Berlin trio’s 2010 debut ‘You Make Me Real’ was a forward-thinking gem. They reworked it on 2011’s ‘Mr Machine’, a techno record played totally live by a ten-piece classical ensemble—they’ve graced the stages of dark nightclubs, classical concert halls and cultural institutions alike, namely Glastonbury, Coachella, Montreux Jazz, Lincoln Center, Mutek, Sonar, Southbank, Centre Pompidou, Fabric, Berghain during their 150 or so worldwide shows over the last 18 months. Taken together, Brandt Brauer Frick are the sound of dance music’s rule book being torn up, pulped and recycled into sheet music paper.

On album three, called ‘Miami’, it’s 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’, the record made with the ensemble, especially was very planned and strict,” says Paul Frick. “We wanted to be more spontaneous this time. We wanted to do something very different, more dark and more rough.” Daniel Brandt takes up the thought. “We felt like we’d fully explored the sound we were doing on the first two albums. We wanted to do something different. With the first record we always thought a DJ must be able to mix this. But at some point we became bored with that approach, that formula of things slowly coming together. Also the experience of playing so many gigs in the last years changed our way of making music a lot.”
