With his sophomore album ITSAME
on FILM, due out 1st April, the highly secretive Brainwaltzera
gives us the first glimpse into his personal life. Changed with time, but with the same rigorous approach to production that had him rumoured to be Apex Twin or a self-aware synth, we chat about the specificity of sound environments and Francis Bourgeois. The album was recorded in Rome, then Athens on make-shift rigs and homemade equipment including an e-cig bass guitar hybrid scattered across his home. Building on his early years living in Kenya listening to Gabber in the Serengeti, ITSAME
is an inspiring moment in the history of IDM.
