Mr. Machine Sees a US Release
On October 25th via !K7

Germany’s genre-defying Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble premiered their epic new track today . On “Pretend,” Brant Brauer Frick and their 10-piece ensemble are joined by Ninja Tune’s Emika for a re-interpretation of a song from her debut album. The ensemble will be releasing their album Mr. Machine in the US on October 25th via !K7, and will be heading over for a full US tour in support of the release.
Expanding on last year’s Brandt Brauer Frick debut You Make Me Real, Mr. Machine takes the German trio’s sound and concept to the next level, adding a full 10-piece ensemble and fusing minimal techno with classical instrumentation. This is an album which rewards repeat listens, as the sounds and arrangements are dense with intricate nuance.
The new album was recorded using a handmade approach, utilizing opulent and unconventional instrumentation: violin, cello, harp, piano, trombone, tuba, timpani, marimba, vibraphone, drum set, various percussion and a Moog synthesizer, the results of which yield an utterly unique sound palate.

Vindahl – Serendipity

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2011 by dk

‘Serendipity’ is a term used in science to describe an unintentional gain of knowledge, finding something you weren’t expecting to find. This strong pop album by Copenhagen-based producer Ronni Vindahl might offer exactly that, if not even more.

As co-founder of the vanguard soul collective Boom Clap Bachelors, Vindahl has also been involved with numerous offspring projects such as Ivory & GoldRobiKris Mars andNon+. This first album project to be released under his real name has been his secret heart project for more than four years now, its release date being postponed numerous times for further rounds of perfectioning. Of course ‘Serendipity’ is first and foremost a bold electronic indie pop album, but it goes further, integrating insights from his work in philosophy and art galleries into the album concept. Musical influences as diverse as Talking Heads, Trevor Horn and Prince shimmer through, complemented by lyrics often based on themes of duality as the album cover indicates. Guest artists featured on ‘Serenpidity’ include swedish pop star Jenny WilsonCoco from Quadron and a bonus remix by the Boom Clap Bachelors. An album which is lot more than just an unintentional gain of knowledge, but a serious piece of pop art!

 Release date October 17th 2010
Label code TDR11-006
Distribution Digital / CD worldwide

Production Ronni Vindahl
Additional prod. Boom Clap Bachelors

Absolutely drop dead gorgeous. Like the most beautiful girl you’ve ever met!
