Brandt Brauer Frick: You Make Me Real

This German trio has an amazingly unique sound that can only be described as “acoustic techno.”  For Brandt Brauer Frick, pianos, strings and drums provide the common thread between the classical past and techno present.  While their music contains rich tones and timbres of orchestral instrumentation, their rousing tracks are rhythmically focused with the precision of electronic club beats.

Their debut LP, You Make Me Real, showcases the group’s stunning rhythms and chords, which speak fluently in an increasingly beat-driven culture.  Their deep knowledge in music’s foundations helps them in creating a more pure, perfect sound.  Their album will be released later this month.
