Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Withheld is Brennan Perry, an artist from the San Francisco area. Although the music he plays varies from simplistic minimal techno to intricate tech house, his style is dark, powerful, and heavy but not overwhelming.
While spending a summer hanging out with his friends as they perfected their DJ skills, he was enticed to try it too. After initially being frustrated, something clicked and he began to understand what it meant to be a DJ. Shortly after this summer, he bought his own setup and began practicing religiously, creating a style of his own.
At a young age, he was introduced into the world of music when he started playing the trumpet. After deciding the trumpet wasn't the instrument for him, he moved on to play guitar and drums, taking lessons and learning the fundamentals of melody, rhythm, and percussion.
After being unsatisfied with the human error involved in playing traditional instruments, his taste gradually shifted over towards electronic music. With electronic music, he could control sound in a much more sophisticated way. The majority of his free time is used for producing, where he can take his knowledge of sound and use it to create music of his own. With a solid foundation in techno, minimal, and tech house, his songs tends to be quite simple yet have an undeniable bounce to them.
