Focalist aka Brandon Brown brings Mesa into 2017 with a bouncy array of Broken Beat, Electronica and Techno on this 5 track EP he calls ‘Rurbanite’. Squeaks, bleeps and blips twitter above luscious synths and bubbling bass lines as analog delay washes over consistent but never stagnant percussion. Each piece is a journey with a familiar road, though every turn keeps the listener guessing and stretching their neck to see around the corner for a view of the next beautiful sound to come from Focalist’s ‘Rurbanite’.
As a DJ with over 15 years of experience, as a curator for Boulder’s world-renowned Communikey Festival since its inception in 2008, as a composer, producer, and recording engineer, Brandon Brown has devoted his life to listening - spending countless hours poring over the finest sounds the world has to offer, and listening just as attentively to people and environments in order to imbue every experience with the perfectly sophisticated blend of tasteful intellectual form and primal dance floor function.
