FatCat Records podcast #85 - The Durian Brothers
Our latest podcast is a mix selected by The Durian Brothers, mixed by DON'T DJ and MR. MÜCK. Read an interview with the band at electronique.it where they talk about their influences and the process behind this podcast.
The Durian Brothers are a trio based in Dusseldorf, Germany whose approach to their sound-source is close to that of fellow Dusseldorf resident Hauschka. Completely avoiding the use of records, the turntables are instead creatively mis-used in a very experimental approach. Melodies are played on tuned rubber bands stretched across the decks; assorted objects are placed upon the rotating platters to create scrunching rhythms and textures, resulting in a radical and fresh take on contemporary club music. Slightly wonky and somehow African in its non-standard feel / tonality, it sounds like little else around right now.
