André Bratten + Flavien Berger / Support: A boy named Seb (DJ set) @ Rotondes, 05 August 2016


Born in Oslo, André Bratten has forged his electro-disco sound through inspiration by the likes of Lindstrøm, Todd Terje and Prins Thomas, adding a more minimalist touch. It was Prins Thomas who discovered the young buck and released his first LP in 2013, entitled Be A Man, You Ant. Beforehand Bratten was known as a DJ throughout Europe, having played a set of gigs at the renowned fabric in London. Erol Alkan put one of his tunes (Trommer Og Bass) on his Fabriclive 77 mix CD, which was a bit of a huge deal. Brillant remixer, Bratten also lent a helping hand in redoing stuff for Holy Ghost! and Röyksopp, to name the most prominent ones. His second LP dropped in 2015. Gode took a step back from the club sound to focus on a darker, moodier aesthetic.

His first introduction to programming came with the PlayStation, using the Music 2000 tool! Since then, alot has happened for this enfant terrible of the french synth-pop new wave. Flavien Berger has a love for crafting beats with weird and quirky sounds. He dropped to acclaimed EPs in 2014 (Glitter Glaze and Mars Balnéaire). His latest record, the 2015 Léviathan project, works as an hallucinated soundtrack to his midnight strolls at the fun fair, somewhere in Paris. As you can imagine, it is eerie and magical at the same time. Enjoy the ride.
