ROSE020 - Brett Longman - Faria EP (With Estroe Remix)

by Rosedale Records

supported by


For Rosedale 20, Estroe welcomes Brett Longman with his own distinctive style. Brett is a singer/songwriter and producer. He describes his music as 'minimal grooves, sensually driven by electro sounds' and got in touch with Estroe after he noticed that she used one of his tracks in a mix. He really liked what Rosedale was doing musically and sent some tracks in. They met in Paris recently and are planning further releases.

The seductive and hypnotic arpeggios in Brett's Faria conjures blurry daydream
fantasies of someone smitten by the romance of new love. Hazy
tonal imperfections¿ and occasional off-key slivers of metallic
melody suggest the idea that while no one is perfect, love can fuse
everything together into something beautiful and worth obsessing
over. The underlying steady beat and deep pulsing bassline lend
themself to the ideas of excitement and anticipation of finding ¿the
one¿. Soft sine wave synth tones and vocoded vocal loops paint the
aural canvas in If I Know what Love is. The atmosphere created is
like the kind of itching anxiety of misread emotions and body
language that one might get when feeling unsure about the
direction of a new relationship. Brett¿s vocals bring a sense of
loneliness to the mix like a deep introversion of one¿s mind. Ticking
clock-like beats suggest a hesitancy of thought while the somatic
bassline rumbles underneath and occasionally roars like the words
of a thought that should be said but is suppressed instead. Like a
moment in life where one finds their space and temporarily escapes
from their racing mind, Au fil de l¿eau invites the listener to indulge
in self-reflection. Here, one can see the bigger picture. Brett¿s
beautifully layered percussive synths and delicate, ever evolving
melodic arpeggios represent the intricacies of being alive and how
experience and emotion of the past come together and lead to here
and now. Estroe¿s interpretation of Au fil de l¿eau captures the self
reflective essence of Brett¿s original track. Again, the elaborate use
of gentle melody and arpeggios suggest the complexities of life
while syncopated drums add an air of anticipation and excitement
that something beautiful is about to happen. Deep bass notes hint at
a sense of relief as they give way to soulful string pads near the end
of the track like one has found the inner peace one was searching
