DT716 – German Brigante
Hailing from the sunny south of Spain, a historic cradle of vanguard artists, German Brigante native of Malaga makes his way on the basis of talent and effort. These two qualities, are linked directly in the results of what we hear if we attend carefully what German offer us. To this maxims, we must add a musical culture linked to 80-90’s pop and hip-hop that from early age have influenced German.
Talking in terms of talent German Brigante has achieved a distinctive and unmistakable sound easily recognizable, capable of making him stand out. We also want to emphasize effort, a quality that together with the innate talent that this artist has, becomes the sum that gives rise to the authenticity tangible in every of Brigante’s beats.
These qualities polished in long studio journeys, plus the love that artist professes to the electro and break-beat sounds in the likes of Prodigy, are the ingredients that have helped to configure the sound palette of this producer. That is why top labels such as Dirtybird, Exploited, Connected, Sol Selctas or Diynamic have released the works of German Brigante. All of these tracks, composed with a myriad of details placed in the right time at the ideal moment, received the support of artists such as Solomun or Dixon.
At this point of career, German has reached total freedom in terms of creation. The main result of this is his own record label, Manitox. A place conceived since its inception as the ideal platform, where not only is it shown in the most personal way possible, with productions such as ‘Marimba’. This is also the place where he is giving the opportunity for newcomers to show their skills. Artists, in addition to already established names, that we will surely hear about them in the future.
