It was only a matter of time for Berlin-transplant Fabian Braunbeck to cultivate his own distinct sound as an electronic music artist. . With an impressive curriculum vitae in all facets of the cutthroat underground electronic music and party scene, Fabian, more commonly known as Braunbeck, effortlessly assimilated into the Berlin inner circuit as someone rough and weathered. His ear for what keeps the parties going in the hip city’s hottest clubs, such as Watergate, About.Blank, or Sisyphos, through the years transpired into a nuance adeptness in DJing, and the perfunctory record-digging and rhythm pulse-taking, into an intimate consanguinity with the very synergy of music.
So it doesn't come as a surprise that his music is already being played by the who-is-who of the scene, such as Ame, Solomun, &ME, Rampa, Adriatique or many others. Rather than getting stuck in an age-old novela of art and artist hide and seek the former nightclub talent booker, maintained a firm foot in the scene, while nurturing a dreamy eye out for musical production, which led him to his first international shows from New York City, London, Amsterdam, all the way to Ibiza.
Intrigued by the graceful dance between coarseness and sensitivity, gruff and finesse - the essence of music, in drum and rhythm, bass and melody, Braunbeck let his intuition dally the course of his career, as a renegade in today’s music industry, vulnerable only to the inertia of groove.
