Taken From Their DJ-Kicks Mix Out Now on !K7
Brandt Brauer Frick have just released their ‘DJ Kicks’, featuring tracks of their own and a plethora of artists and tracks specially selected by the Berlin trio. The wonderfully insistent video for ‘Hugo’, flashes through thousands of photos showing life on tour for the band.
Some words from Daniel Brandt about the video:
“As everyone produces a big mass of photos/data on a regular basis since the smartphone is in everyone’s hands, nobody is ever able to actually go through them anymore. The moments of looking back actually never happen. To take this even further we invented a new happening while touring called the “Shoot out”. In a shoot out everyone takes out their smartphone and tries to take as many photos of all other people involved as possible which results in having loads of photos from different perspectives. This was the starting point of this video and also the need to have those photos not be completely lost in piles of data no one will ever go through again. It was more of a practical solution of getting those photos from the past two years into a context that people will actually see them but we also don’t need to bore them off with a slide show at home as no one wants to look at personal photos from other people anymore longer than a second (except our parents). The video consist of a selection from originally around 15.000 photos.“
