We don’t really know if the young Bryan Kessler listened to Kraftwerk, but then again we didn’t ask. What’s certain is that this punk renegade, songwriting wunderkind and all-around exceptional producer is a man of many faces, and all of them rock.
Discovered on stage while spouting anarchist pop slogans and showcasing an impressive mohawk haircut, Kessler never was to be a bottled genius sticking to only one gun. He soon set out to become the lead singer and guitarist for neo-punk nutters the Pollywogs while embarking on an equally public career as a DJ and profilic dance music producer. It’s his mighty fine electronic swagger an a hearty disrespect for genre norms which has already led to powerful solo releases on Get Physical (proudly remixed by the legendary DJ Hell), Like Records and Cologne’s fringe-rave imprint Low Hanging Fruit.
Working with friends from Comeme, Kessler walks his experimental sonic red line with skillful ease. In 2016, he released his 10.000 Suns EP on Jackmaster’s hyped UK label Numbers. By adding live elements to his DJ sets, he gets every crowd shaking, be it in Tel Aviv, Copenhagen, Berlin or Ibiza. This marks the earth-shattering first steps of a truly remarkable new voice. Little fishes, beware: there’s a new shark in the pond.
