Biography

Equipped with an array of samplers, sequencers and vintage synthesizers, San Francisco wunderkinds Broker/Dealer make catchy minimal electronic music equally suited for the den or the dancefloor. Simultaneously channeling the aquatic dub of Berlin’s Chain Reaction label and the genre-defining minimal techno of the Kompakt imprint, on their debut full-length, Initial Public Offering, B/D recalls German electronic artists like Mike Ink, not to mention Metro Area’s innovative electro-disco.

Featuring subterranean basslines, ambient synth pads, dubby beats and interlocking pop melodies, Broker/Dealer’s porous, punchy tracks and classy melodic nuances have been eliciting comparisons with the likes of early Mouse on Mars and Thomas Brinkmann since the release of their first 12” on the well-respected Cologne label, Traum Schallplatten, home to B/D heroes Process, Dinky and Phillipe Cam.

Having recently contributed a Process remix to the Traum artist’s tribute record, Re-Processed, mixed by Doc Martin on the brand new Fabric 10 compilation, and anticipating an appearance on the Death Before Disco anthology (forthcoming from PrinceHouse), Broker/Dealer are receiving a phenomenal amount of well-deserved recognition for an outstanding young band at the beginning of a promising career.
