When the three men Brandt, Brauer and Frick met in the year 2008, the concept of the trio was rather unusual: electronic music created through mediums and the spirt of classic instruments, and you can use classic literally: they sampled cello, violin or tuba and rebuild the sounds. Everything that got too close to an already defined genre they tried to avoid to create a mix of techno, new music and jazz. Their first gig was at Berghain in Berlin; the first record “You Make Me Real” was released 2010 and made the trio famous beyond the borders of electronic music. During their live performances they work with an ensemble of classical musicians without stepping into the trap of most crossover projects – so much for “techno meets classic”. The logic of their music is always based on a sound idea, which should avoid clichés and the focus should be the groove. “Joy” from 2016, an extraordinary collaboration with the Canadian singer and songwriter Beaver Sheppard, was just like that. 2019 the trio made a comeback with new recordings – the pre-release “Rest” sounds almost like old-school-electro, crafted from acoustic instruments, with a pushing beat and a seducing melody. Back to the roots.
