Justin Case "You Matter!" (bc037)

Here at Bricolage we pride ourselves on unearthing musical gems in the form of under the radar producers and our latest diamond in the rough is as close to home as you can get....

Today we’re proud to unveil the debut EP from Glaswegian producer, Justin Case.

“You Matter!” is full of unconventional but digestible rhythms straight out of the mid 90’s golden era of IDM and electronic exploration. Crunchy beats and abstract structures battle for supremacy with off kilter bass and refined sound design. There’s elements of glitch, elastic ambient and breaks that bubble away under the surface but the main light that shines throughout all 4 tracks is that of a vibrant musical exuberance that is near impossible not to enjoy, with the closing track ‘Napali’ being a prime example of Justin’s colourful side and knack for stunning melodic hooks.

This is just the start of what is sure to be an exciting musical journey for this promising producer. Be sure to join him at the start of the trip.

Buy/Stream the EP in full exclusively @ the Bricolage bandcamp

"The 'Morgenlicht' EP is four audio slabs of acid/electro hybrids that are loaded with creativity, raw analogue power and an old school grittiness reminiscent of the experimental techno of the early 1990's. Acid bleeps and fuzzy basslines incorporated into intricate mechanical soundscapes that are complimented by meticulous drum work. The influences of the Detroit Techno era shine through on the EP but never threaten to engulf the overall sound and style that Arran Trax has tirelessly shaped for himself. 

The concept behind the music was to 'capture that special atmosphere when you come out of a club and it's just starting to get light'. 

We'd say Arran Trax has done that and more with this classy release that's perfect for peak time or that walk back from the club with your headphones on."

Introducing : Justin Case

Here at Bricolage we pride ourselves on unearthing and sharing musical gems in the form of under the radar producers and our latest find is as close to home as you can get. We've been keeping this one under wraps for a wee while now but in just under 3 weeks time, on the 30th of July, we release the debut EP from Glaswegian producer, Justin Case. "You Matter" is brimming with a fresh and exciting musical exuberance.

Here's a bit about the man behind the sounds.....

"Having begun to acquire and experiment with his own gear, a Musician, Producer and electronic music enthusiast, Justin Case hails from Glasgow, Scotland. When not performing, he spends his time in the studio creating his own music. Justin has had a lot of time to develop his sound. For him, it’s all about mood and a deep, hypnotic groove… those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style."
