A collaboration between artists Florian Meyer, Marc Matter and Stefan Schwander has seen a trilogy of EPs on their own Diskant label - itself initially created as a means to release the band’s music - a split release (with Konono Nº1) on Fat Cat, a live cassette, last years mini-LP on Kontra Musik and the most recent split with High Wolf. Although often based in different cities across the Continent, recording is centered around Dusseldorf’s Salon des Amateurs. While some tracks were directly recorded there, all of them were developed and rehearsed at the groundbreaking arts/bar/club space. The distinctive polyrhythms come from modified turntables – without using records – along with effects and sequencing, thereby creating a unique, experimental, dense and warm dance music – oft described a wooden trance muzik. Ausgewahlte Durian Stucke (“Selected Durian Pieces”) takes the music from the early EPs that did not feature on the Diskanted (ERS022) album and presents them as one stand-alone. As the solo projects of Don’t DJ and Harmonious Thelonious become more distinct and known, what the future holds for the Brother’s collaborations is uncertain, but together their music has little to compare.
