Google+ Beathearts: Brandt Brauer Frick - You make me real


Brandt Brauer Frick - You make me real

Now here's a fresh take on new music crossing boundrys: Brandt Brauer Frick. The trio from Frankfurt has just released their debut album You make me real on K7!

Their working process is to make tracks with an electronic mindset of looping, filtering and layering but all through jamming with live instruments. Recording everything, taking the best parts, cut it up and go back to jamming. Just like Marvin Gaye, D'angelo and Matthew Herbert used to do it.

Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer and Paul Frick are based in Daniel's mother's garage in a Frankfurt suburb which they rebuilt to suit their needs. Daniel continues:

"It’s a great place because it’s close to nature. We don’t have internet access in our studio and my mom is cooking for us every day. So we can really focus on making music. It’s kind of a holiday situation there.

In the beginning it was just a garage for cars, now there is great acoustics inside, totally dry sound to record. And of course we collected a lot of instruments and things to make music with. Like an old piano which we bought for 50 euros somewhere.

As we are kind of in a cave there with no media input or other tasks coming in from outside we have a great atmosphere there. And the fact that every single sound of our album has been recorded in the same room with the same acoustics makes it all stick together. At least we believe that… And it’s kind of close to the Robert-Johnson club where we go quite often after a session."

Heading for great achievements in the coming years the hype has just started. Their scheduled Maida Vale session for Gilles Peterson on December 17th will be the launch of a new era for the Franfurt trio getting worldwide attention.
