East Coast club royalty, Brenmar and DJ Sliink, have announced today the BACK2BACK Tour which will see the longtime collaborators ripping through North America this March through May. The co-headline, b2b jaunt follows a long history between the two innovators who have released together on DJDS’ Body High imprint here in Los Angeles and blended their unique styles in countless sets over the years in New York City. With Brenmar under the wing of the Fool’s Gold Records family and Sliink signed to OWSLA last year, the two veteran producers and DJs represent the crest of the wave that is club music in the US, and together, the guys find a powerful synergy exposed in these proper b2b performances.
Along with the tour announcement today comes the free release of “Long Minute” — the latest original production from Brenmar and Sliink which touches upon both Sliink’s Jersey rhythm inclinations as well as Brenmar’s sleek R&B stylings thanks to the passionate vocals from Rush Davis.
He took the reigns as Jersey Club’s first global star, spreading the genre from humble beginnings in Newark’s DIY party spaces to international culture hot spots like London, Paris, Milan and Oslo – not to mention mainstream attention from MTV, SPIN, Vice, and more. After shooting to post-EDM stardom with a collaborative EP on Fool’s Gold with Flosstradamus, soundtracking Paris runways for Alexander Wang and Rick Owens, and playing festivals around the globe, Sliink is entering the next chapter of his career. The OWSLA Records bossman Skrillex sought out Sliink’s diverse club sound as the newest addition to their eclectic roster. Hard at work on his first project for the label, you can trust that Sliink has few tricks up his sleeve for 2016.
Brooklyn by way of Chicago based DJ and producer, Brenmar, represents a strange musical paradox. Somehow defying the odds, he marries the artificial gloss of commercial R’n’B with the urban grittiness of underground styles like Chicago footwork and UK bass. His releases on the Discobelle, Grizzly, and Enchufada labels have taken him to both coasts of the U.S., Canada Japan, and the EU – frenzying crowds with his up-tempo, neon-drenched tunes. Brenmar’s more ‘unofficial’ online releases have also been gobbled up by the taste-making blogs and DJs of the world. His recipe for success? Take a pinch of Mannie Fresh snares, a handful of DJ Rashad toms, a dose of basslines from the UK, a generous portion of Hot 97 vocalists, poach it all in a synthesizer broth, and garnish with some Timbaland sheen. You’re getting close.
