With this special preview from your upcoming print publication, available March 21st, Om’Mas Keith displays on his collaboration along with Brandt Brauer Frick.
I actually first heard about Brandt Brauer Frick through my buddies over at Red Bull Songs Academy. I’m assuming that BBF had noticed some of my material, were aware of some of my personal earlier works together with Sa-Ra Innovative Partners and such, as well as reached out to have touching me personally. They sent me a track and several links; Used to do my research as well as fell in love using their aesthetic. They sent a great monitor over, therefore it was a lot like a double whammy of great original music that they desired me to feature on along with their repertoire of past songs. I liked their sense of musicality, their orchestration, and their choice of instruments. I really liked how they depicted themselves, too.
The actual sent me personally [track “Plastic Like Your Mother”], in their perception, has been somewhat skeletal, tough, and incomplete. When I noticed it, I viewed it as finish, their sonic rhythm bed. I had taken their “skeletal form” as well as kept it just as it was. This kind of blew their brains, simply because they didn’t even view a form within the structure whatsoever, and i also immediately honed within on some important elements and used them to play off things i would continue to lead. I wrote several lyrics, added words; I added several music as well as well as did some brief modifying, added percussion as well as claps—but still kept their form completely true.
I’m only on one track on the album, but they stated in an interview that I’m the only individual on the record in whose contribution was wholly as well as solely created in the own world. I did my contributions to that particular song without conference them or any further consultation. I suppose the song has been so good they mentioned to come out and visit with them. I’m a multi-instrumentalist, the vocalist, along with a producer, as well as another area they’re delving more into is a more electronic sound this go circular. I guess they just felt I had been able to provide that. Individually, I think they will made the best choice. Depending on what I’ve observed since I’ve been here, and what I’m able to lead, it’s seems an effective fit.
My own career is deeply grounded in very person, creative claims. It started using the team Sa-Ra; our entire demonstration was rooted within our our need to just be ourselves at any costs. I’d actually decided to come out on tour with BBF just before actually winning the Grammy. Taking a look at it today, this is truly the perfect enhance, almost an incentive for getting the actual Grammy [as producer for Frank Ocean ‘s Channel Orange for Best Urban Contemporary Album]. Visit Europe and also have fun to get a month together with your good mates who think similar to the way you need to do creatively? Come on. There’s not be surprised about, because this is simply as big every other thing that I carry out.
The particular record as a whole is pretty heavy. I actually heard it in early stages, along with Daniel [Brandt] at his flat. Once again, I had been just impressed by the intricacies and the rhythmic mixtures, all the neighborhoods. These guys carry on and show that they are really talented and set lots of thought into what they do. It’s heavy. It’s strong. It’s extremely sonically pleasing and exciting. I’m destined to be singing words on tour. The particular Jamie Lidell track, specifically, they’d already been performing live and have had never had a chance to perform this with a vocalist. Therefore , Daniel was just like, “Okay, do you consider you’ll sing this song around? ” And i also was just like, “Yeah, obviously I’ll sing this. ” I love the words, I loved all of the vocal efforts. The guys, that they had a focus in mind.
I’ll just tell this, the fellas understand that people are into typecasting and putting people in a box. They understand that people think of them as this group who create electronic-influenced music with traditional instruments. It isn’t really fair for them for people in order to ever think that they are one thing as well as one-sided. And if anyone who thinks like this is not cool with me. I actually told them, “Your true fans are going to follow an individual right into this new movement. Fuck everybody else. Let’s rock as a group, as well as whoever doesn’t hop on, if they are not around, they’re going to get rolled more than, ” because what we’re doing is really powerful, extreme, and revolutionary. All my followers will at least end up being intrigued by it as well as vice versa. Maybe their fans is going to be such as, “Well, this person Om’Mas, he is done this, as well as made this Honest Ocean record with Honest, maybe we would like to see what is going on here. ” Therefore , it’s perfect. You have 4 guys who are going on tour that are all on stage and care so much about music it can easily cause them to become insane. ~
