Brey – Brasil

The London producer enlists horns, tambourines and possibly the kitchen sink on a 4-track EP for Svetlana Industries

You might know Brey from Pearson Sound’s winning Fabriclive CD, where he appears by the name of Die Barbie Musik Kollektiv, or from his heavyweight Javeon McCarthy remix – the kind of track which made YouTube commenters write: “Brey is a BADMAN!!!” If you don’t, then his new ‘Brasil’ EP for Svetlana Industries should prove the perfect introduction.

Lead track Bengela is a cinematic piece of rainforest boogie, the soundtrack to a high-camp James Bond splashing through the Congo River, while the deceptively titled Double A Side gathers up a selection of dubstep, garage and tribal sounds before pressing the button marked ‘deranged’. The influence of Angolan kuduro music is also tangible in the insistent percussion of Juno, a natural reflection of the London-based producer’s family roots.

The 4-track vinyl appears on 19th March, followed by a digital download on 2nd April.
