Brassica’s music distills a storied musical past; capturing Balearic house, real electro, italo disco, new wave, psych, synth music, techno and rave nostalgia, without sounding consigned to any particular part of it.
Brassica’s highly sought early releases on Dissident and his DJ Mag Album of the Year nominated LP “Man Is Deaf” on Civil Music have developed in recent years to more acid, breaks and balmy house on his EP for Feel My Bicep. This transition has aided his are promiscuous liaisons between noir influenced anxiety, naughty MIDI riffs, majestic orchestral moments and elements that could have been caned by Belgian new beat and Italian Cosmic DJs. All this sets his music apart and has earned him an enviable list of supporters including Bicep, DJ Harvey, Maceo Plex, Trevor Jackson, Henry Saiz, Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan.
Brassica’s Live performances are equally special, as Bicep said recently: “We’ve been Brassica’s biggest fans for years. His recent live shows at our parties have been absolute screamers, as anyone who went can testify!”
And with good reason; when taking the stage – as he has alongside Egyptian Lover, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Dopplereffekt, Jeff Mills, and more – he hand crafts every set, writing reams of material specifically for every show.
This attention to detail and desire for constant innovation, combined with his encyclopaedic musical references and technical brilliance make Brassica’s records, remixes and live performances thrilling and unique; and it is why his is already a favourite of your favourites and why he should be one of your favourites too.
