“WHAT is Brand!?”
This question seems to arise more and more often as the urgency for deeper bass-sounds is soaring through even the quietest backwaters. While the most sensible thing to ask would actually be: “WHO is Brand!?”. Though this question is, yet again, unanswerable since Brand! is partly machine.
Still, as with all roots and routes, nothing comes from nowhere. Growing up as a kid in a designer family, Brand! realised at an early stage that he didn’t need to adapt to his environment. Instead, his environment could adapt to him; resulting in rather awkward home videos from age 4 through 10. Luckily, at an age of 11, Brand! received a bonus gift with his first empty bank-account: E-jay music software. This resulted in a slightly darker period of self-expression and if Facebook were to exist back in the 90s; some serious loss of friend-requests.
All it took then was for Brand! to understand that there could be more people but himself that might enjoy computer music. And by god did they do!
So straight from his living room right up the legs dancing in the most derelict clubs he went. To arrive, severely damaged, at the sheer bliss he enjoys today.
Finally, skipping through the confusing paradigms, one soon realizes that to capture Brand!’s sound in words would only bring us further from the truth. Your most viable option to consider is therefore probably to go and listen to his music. Enjoy.
