Exclusive DOTD: Brandt Brauer Frick, R.W. John

Orchestral instrumentation is often an afterthought for techno producers, a bid to lend seriousness or respectability to club tracks. For the German trio Brandt Brauer Frick it was the initial idea that blossomed into what they describe as acoustic techno — music inspired by the rigorous arrangements of Steve Reich and the unexpected timbres in John Cage’s compositions. While they’ve done an admirable job executing this style on singles for The Gym and Tartelet, their forthcoming debut album, You Make Me Real is the larger canvas necessary to fully appreciate their aesthetic. One of the standouts of their !K7 LP, and this week’s exclusive download, is “R.W. John.” It’s an incredibly propulsive number whose fleeting array of organ notes, horn stabs and chiming piano chords hurtles by like a Robert Hood track crashing through a recital. Through it the trio offer proof that despite their classical associations, their tracks pack some serious heft. Our thanks to Brandt Brauer Frick and !K7 for letting everyone preview the track before the album drops November 23rd.
