Brett’s sound is best known as groovy, bumping house with a hearty dose of techno elements, crafted and mixed in a way that is truly identifiable as his own. Whether DJing or creating music, his wild card is an ability to inject warmth and soul into his electronic sound. The result is an impressive discography filled with unique statements, otherworldly surprises, and undeniable club stompers.
Releasing his first record in 1999 on the now defunct, Aesoteric Records, Brett has released over 100 records and remixes for some of dance music’s best labels. The list includes Crosstown Rebels, Classic Music Company, 20/20 Vision, Get Physical, Visionquest, Magnetic, Freerange, Cynosure, F-Communications; the list goes on and on. Aside from a busy remix schedule, Brett is currently releasing his own music on the labels Visionquest, Classic Music Company, Get Physical and Cynosure Recordings.
Transplanted in Oakland CA by way of Chicago, current resident at SF’s House Music weekly Housepitality, and SS Records / audioJazz Music label runner. Upcoming projects place him alongside Jason Kendig, Ed Nine, D’marc Cantu and D-Wynn/R-Tyme. With past releases on Farris Wheel, Smooth Agent Records and Poontin. Remixing Tyree Cooper, Bernard Badie, Dajae & Ken ECB alongside 95 North. He’s experienced a modest background working with and around nightlife’s elite, made possible by his impact as a DJ for nearly 20 years.
