Exclusive Premiere: Brillstein – Jaw Like Shabba



As you may have guessed from our extensive coverage of all things Jesse Rose and his two imprints Play It Down and Made To Play we’re quite the fans of Mr. Rose and Co.’s many house music musings. With the sun shining and the Easter Bank Holiday just around the corner we’re in a fine mood and the weather/impending long weekend aren’t the only reasons behind our smiling faces here in the office on this fine day. The other reason? No less than an exclusive premiere of a fresh cut from Play It Down signing Brillstein.

Having worked alongside stellar names of the electronic music world a la Jesse Rose, Oliver $ and Diplo, Brillstein – regardless of your take on his music – is the sort of producer whose credentials are as impeccable as they come. The artist who also goes by the name of Thee Mike B, has been a lynchpin of the LA scene since the early ’90s, but it’s now, on his full debut for Rose’s Play It Down, where he really looks set to leave his mark.

The album in question is Back To Bed, and it’s an uncompromising listen that’s full of no nonsense 4/4 beats as well as moments of melancholia and introspection alike. In short, it’s exactly the sort of music we’ve brilliantly become accustomed to hearing from the Play It Down camp.

With the Back To Bed mini LP set to arrive April 29th we’ve hooked up with Brillstein to exclusively share curiously titled album cut Jaw Like Shabba with you for your listening pleasure ahead of its full release.

Guaranteed to get you in the mood for the weekend, you can check it out below:







Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
