Boris Brejcha 'Sad But True' How to make with DRC

In the music industry if you really want to make a name for yourself, to stand out and be heard, you need to innovate, bring something new and interesting to the turntables. One step further than pursuing a certain style, German DJ and producer Boris Brejcha set out to define an entire genre of his own; "High-Tech Minimal“. Ironically born out of a frustration of genre specific pigeon holes, categorising sub-genres to the nth degree and the debates which inevitably ensued as to precisely which box he belongs, defining an entirely new genre seems like a genius solution.

Shifting between minimal techno and trancey melodies, it’s easy to see the benefits of the freedom to produce in a multitude of directions depending on your mood, and this is indeed the way Boris sees it. Music driven by emotion, translated into sound with the use of a few trusty, favourite synthesizers, whatever form it ends up taking.

Djing and performance wise, in a similar vein to larger-than-life mask wearers Deadmau5 and Marshmello, Boris shows off his love of south America with his carnival ‘joker mask’ inspired from his early shows in Brazil, hinting at a more flamboyant side.

Ever the innovator, even in these challenging times, Boris has just announced a set of three special live stream performances for three different time zones, with tickets exclusively available online.

For this week’s DRC Sound Design tutorial Lucas takes a look at Boris’ 2016 track ‘Sad But True’ recreating four sounds from the track; bass, pad, lead and percussive sound.

Over the years, Daft Punk have masterfully sampled many tracks by other artists, taking it as source material, then twisting, transforming and turning it into massive records of their own.
