Para cerrar este post decidimos sumar el texto que el amigo Dj Broken Record armó en su blog contando de que se trata este EP, en el que relata cual fue el camino que lo condujo hasta aquí. Y de paso le facilitamos un poco las cosas a los amigos anglo hablantes. Aunque si se fijan bien, arriba de todo en nuestra página hay diferentes banderitas con las que con solo un click pueden leer estas mismas palabras en otros idiomas, seguramente con mala traducción, pero con el mismo corazón: “A couple of months ago I was sending around my Branko remix, which of course failed to win the remix contest, to the usual suspects. I was in the middle of a Facebook message frenzy when I got a message back from someone I didn’t recognize. This isn’t odd; we in the insular Internet Global Bass scene will randomly add each other on social media sites for music promotion purposes. This message, however, happened to be from the Hungarian producer GEKKEI, whose work I had incidentally been admiring for several weeks prior.
After we both realized what each other’s artist names were, the producer nerdedry began, along with mutual praise about our respective music. It didn’t take long for us to come across the word “expression,” become mutually stoked, and realize that, though being 10 years apart in age and 9,000 miles in distance, we were on the exact same wavelength when it came to music.
The result of those conversations was DEAD STARE, a collaboration project that is based entirely on one musical aesthetic: the feeling of someone standing in an otherwise empty room, staring directly at you, with no expression or emotion. ‘Why,’ you ask? Well because art, that’s why. Not because it’s going to score us any points with any big shot names (because it won’t), not because it’s going to get us a massive underground following (because it won’t). We make art because we need to tell our stories. Because this 17 year old from a country I’ve never been to and that I know nothing about decided to tell me, a complete stranger, about his recent breakup, because he knew just from listening to my music that I’d understand. Because this 27 year old failure of a producer will keep sabotaging his career prospects by releasing Blink 182 Moombahton edits and Hardstyle Cumbia instead of making one goddamn Twerk track that would put him on the map. Because the need to tell our stories is a much more powerful motivation for making music than “making girls shake there [sic] asses.” Because each track on this release tells its own story, a story about Santa Rosa, another one about Gyor, another one about Gekkei, another one about Broken Record.
Like Gekkei would say, I don’t know that we have much of a choice, really. I mean we could always decide to just make this music and not release it. Or, we could decide not to make this music, and tell our stories by standing in an otherwise empty room staring directly at you with no expression or emotion. But that would be creepy. So we make music instead.
Dead Stare EP is being debuted exclusively through one of my favorite blogs, Cassette Blog. They have supported almost every single thing I’ve ever done as Broken Record…which is crazy…almost as crazy as the fact that they actually understand and enjoy the music. Man.
