After listening to a few Brawther signed records, you will understand why the Frenchman had chosen to live in the pleasantly mild weather of Lisbon. His cheeky house groove has found home at Cabinet Records with few bomb EPs’ and also at labels like Chez Damier’s Balance or Secret Sundaze. Using his own imprint as the perfect outlet for his music, Brawther released the twisted atmospheric Transient States LP in 2018, a must have for any record collector with a strong passion for all sorts of electronic music. He’s deeply involved in the house music community, putting a lot of effort through his Patreon page, where one can find a massive amount of content, from music production tutorials, exclusive tracks and insightful talks with people from the electronic underground.
Talking about record collectors and their most pride items, we asked Brawther to dig a little bit deeper through his crates and pick up a few records that come with a nice story. Enjoy!
A second hand dig I’m most proud of
The record I’d love to see it repressed
The label I’d buy all their releases without even listening to them
DiY Discs – just a handful to completion
The record artwork that blows my mind every time I look at it
The record that triggers childhood memories
The record shop I would spend my whole savings in
Disk Union: huge record store chain in Tokyo. All styles, the best, ever.
The record that never leaves my DJ bag
Smooth & Simmonds – The Four Seasons – one of my most played records… ever
Last record I checked its price on discogs
Liquidizer – You Make Me Feel So….. – a cheapo dollar bin record that is now super sought after, mainly due to a youtube uploader and not a famous DJ… both being very annoying reasons for me not being able to buy it 😊
Last record I bought for my home listening pleasure
The record closest to my heart from my entire collection
Longest time i spent looking obsessively for a record and finally got a mint copy a couple of years ago off Yahoo Auction. It’s a real piece of history as these were a limited private pressing run by Soichi Terada, authorized by Columbia, which found its way in the hands of Larry Levan, David Mancuso and other seminal NY DJ’s one summer of 1989. The rest is history.
