Known for being one of the finest DJ’s around, Brackles stops by Disco Droppings for a quick interview. He’s got a wonderful album out via Rinse entitled “Rinse Presents: Brackles”, head over to Boomkat to take it all in. The lp features vocal collaborations with Lily Mckenzie, Terri Walker and Meleka.
DD What is your goal as a DJ when you’re directing a dancefloor?
B Obviously I’m trying to make sure people have a good time, but also I hope I’m playing music people haven’t heard a 100 times before. That can be brand new dubplates or perhaps more obscure records from the past but if the crowd is with me. I try to stay clear of too many obvious tunes.
DD Any Brackles releases on the way? Any plans to tour the U.S?
B Yes, my debut album dropped on Rinse a few weeks ago. It features 4/5 vocal tracks. No plans to tour the U.S but should be back out to do New York after the CD is out.
DD Top five songs in your current tracklists?
B Fuzzy Logik and Myshy – Pose
C4 – Off Track
May7ven – Tenten
x5 Dubs – When I See You Smile
