T.D.E.C Friday Feature Vol.37 – Bredren INTERVIEW

Check out the latest Friday Feature from none other than Belgian heavyweights Bredren!

1. Tell us about your sound. Are there any major influences or inspirations for the music you make?

This very same question has been asked before and it’s still difficult to give a decent answer. All 3 of us got different taste in music so we got a wide range of inspiration if it comes to that.

When we’re in the studio we try to blend those inspirations together. Most of the times this results in a minimal, deep tune (or at least that’s our goal!).

2. Describe yourselves in 3 words

Minimal, deep and dark.

3. What is your studio currently running? 

We are currently using Reason 6.5, Yamaha HS80 studio monitors and an external Tascam soundcard.

4. What artists and releases are you digging at the moment?

Kinda impressed by Gerra & Stone’s latest EP on dispatch, it’s pretty big! We’ve been digging Tokyo Proses’ album as wel lately when it comes down to the more liquid side of deep drum & bass.

To name another few artists who are really doing it for us atm: Fre4knc, Amoss, DBR UK, Interline, Young:G, Arkaik etc etc. Too many artists out there but you got the picture!

5. What has been your most memorable gig?

I think that has to be the set at the beach of Outlook Festival 2012. There have been a few other really good ones but just to pick one 🙂

6. Where do you see drum and bass going in the next 5 years?

To be really honest, I think drum & bass is taking a peak at this moment. Everyone has been experimenting by trying out all sorts of different beat patterns and trying stuff ’’no one has ever done before’’ but I don’t really see it changing a lot more.

Which isn’t really a bad thing, drum & bass is running pretty strong everywhere in the world. If we all try to keep the standards high like everyone always did, then drum & bass will never die!

7. If you could collaborate with any artist, dead or alive, who would you choose?

No clue to be honest! We’re not really in to collabs I suppose 🙂 But if we really have to pick one it would be Skeptical. He has been an inspiration since the beginning and it would be something really special to bring our heads together.

8. You’re stuck on a desert island and are only allowed to eat one type of food for the rest of your life. What do you choose?

Spaghetti bolognaise.

9. If you could have any super power, what would it be?

Move from one place to another by snapping your fingers.

10. Any last words?

We are releasing our debut LP on Proximity Recordings on monday November 17th. The LP includes 13 solo tracks, a remix from Amoss and another one from Basher. We’ve been busy for 1 year now working on the LP and we are really happy of the finished product. You’ll hear some of the LP tracks in the mix so we hope you’ll enjoy! Big ups to everyone involved for making this LP happen and of course the Deep End Collective for this interview. Hopefully see you guys in Australia at some point!
