Q: Hi! No need to introduce you here (although you are free to do so). Maybe you could tell us what you've been up to lately?
A: I did a lot of studio sessions with other musicians. Very happy to have met Robbert & Bobby aka Kaap De Goede Hoop last summer. Spent quite some time there. The Red Bull Music Studio x Barre Tijden project was great as well as the supercosy Barre Tijden pineapple party at indigo. And last weekend, Magneet Festival in Amsterdam was a very nice place to play and be.
Q: People might have noticed that you've started playing DJ sets again after years of only playing live. Could you please enlighten us with your motivations?
A: I actually started playing again because me and Jan (Continuous Space Time) teamed up for some DJ sets end of 2012. I really enjoyed playing records again. Though my main focus is still on the live-sets I love to play a dj set once in a while. Especially together with CST. Building atmosphere together in a whirling Q&A in front of a dance-floor is one of the best things there is.
Q: So this is your second Barre Tijden Podcast. Is there anything interesting to say about the comparison between the two of them?
I would say that it is less 'happy'. The newer Brand! material is also getting a little darker. Two old Poker Flat songs were playing in my head for the past weeks. I really like the Poker Flat material from '08/'09. So I started out with that. I tried to focus mainly on hypnotic grooves and built the mix around them. I combined the hypnotic with some new fresh house sounds. The last track is the premiere of a new track I am really proud of: Brand! & Kaap de Goede Hoop - Cold Sweat. It is a really diverse podcast with a lot of genres in it. Hope you like!
Q: And to wrap it up: What can people expect from Brand! in the near future?
This saturday I will play a long awaited 3 hour live and DJ set with Barre Tijden brother Cardboard Motel at the infamous Into The Woods festival. I am doing a remix for him as well right now. Further more ADE is coming with a very nice Barre Tijden hosting. More in the pipeline. Stay tuned!
