BENJAMIN BRUNN

At first I would like to thank Rayna for approaching me and giving me the opportunity to let my music speak. And certainly in this case I said 'yes' straight away, although it took me a while to complete it. I recorded this piece of music in my room on Veddel Island here in Hamburg during the last couple of weeks. It is basically what I would play in a club these days. I used a TR-626, TR-707 and my Nord Modular. I love these gray machines and I think they fit nicely next to my red Keyboard. Apart from the rough keys I played with my fingers, I spiced the music up with a couple of other meaningful recordings of others speaking. Without explaining too much, because everybody should draw their own conclusions, to me these bits are about the fundamental components 'yes' and 'no' in life. 0 and 1 in the digital world are what 'yes' and 'no' are in the real world out there and in all we do. Life is like an unlimited sequence of 'yes' and 'no' and its consequences. Every single 'yes' and 'no' can be positive or negative, cause joy or pain and may be senseless, only the combination over time makes sense and life is all about the right sequence of answers and decisions. Everyone is responsible for their own set of 'yes' and 'no'. Some are brought to us and we have to cope with it, in most cases we have to control. At first sight, 'yes' seems to be the better answer, however, sometimes 'yes' means 'no' on the other end causing unhappiness. One thing is for sure, time keeps going and we have to fill it with 'yes' and 'no'. However, in whatever we do, Steve Jobs said we should "stay hungry, stay foolish", and I think he is right.

Terrific and thoroughly enjoyable mix that I keep coming back to again and again. A lot more warm and "analog" than my experience with his other solo work. Samples remind me a bit of Namlook "golden age"
