While the new Brandt Brauer Frick album Miami sees the Berlin trio once again using instruments most associated with classical music (piano, strings, timpani) to create dance music, it also sees the group stepping away from the “acoustic techno” approach of some previous work.

With their new single “Plastic Like Your Mother,” BBF collaborate with Om’mas Keith (founding member of Sa-Ra Creative Partners and co-producer of Frank Ocean‘s Channel Orange) for a dark and frenetic track that defies categorization. Listen to the track over at The FADER.

Om’Mas Keith will also be supporting Brandt Brauer Frick’s European tour in the Spring. Full tour dates below.

Brandt Brauer Frick will release their third album Miami on !K7 Records, out March 19.

About Miami:

“Brandt Brauer Frick put the technique into techno.” – Time Magazine

“Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer, and Paul Frick [are] making some of the most beguiling dance music in recent years.” – Los Angeles Times

“Concert hall compositions for the clubbing generation.” –  

Sometimes what you don’t do is as important as what you do. Brandt Brauer Frick have made name for themselves producing techno without the technology, using classical instruments in preference to synthesizers and computers. It’s a negative that’s had positive results.

On the Berlin trio’s third album Miami, once again it’s what Brandt Brauer Frick are not doing that is important: they aren’t slavishly following the formula of the album’s two predecessors. “Mr Machine [2011’s sophomore album,recorded with the a ten piece classicalensemble] especially was very planned and strict,” says Paul Frick. “We wanted to be more spontaneous this time. We wanted to do something very different, more dark and more rough. We wanted to write songs rather than tracks that slowly evolve.”

Another major difference is the appearance of a number of guest vocalists who had a big influence on the album’s direction. There are appearances from Jamie LidellOm’mas Keith (Grammy nominated producer of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, Kanye West, Jay Z), Gudrun Gut (Einsturzende Neubauten and German punk band Malaria!), Erika Janunger and Russian DJ and producer Nina Kraviz.

The album is accompanied by a new stripped-down live show: no ensemble this time, just the three protagonists and a specially-built stage set. The visuals will be created by Brandt Brauer Frick affiliated production company Park Bennett, which makes all of the band’s videos and is responsible for the overall visual concept for the album, inspired by Fluxus art of the ’60s.
