The Brig Sets Sail with ‘Drunken Master’ Promo Mix

The self-proclaimed Russian electro Swashbuckler better known as The Brig has come to be recognized by his skillful marriage of destructive beats and melodic bass that has earned him releases on some of bass music’s most influential labels. Most recently, The Brig released his four-track Drunken Master EP through the LA-based Firepower Records  that left fans hungry for more.

Well, ask and you shall receive! The Brig follows up his Drunken Master EP with an exclusive mix for Firepower Records that promises to take listeners on another journey through the unpredictable waters of bass music. As if the mix wasn’t enough, we caught up with The Brig for a short Q&A to find out a little more about the EP that has the masses nodding.

If you haven’t snagged your copy of Drunk Master, you can grab it here and check the heat below.

Tell us about your inspiration behind the Drunken MasterEP. Is there a particular story you’re trying to tell?
I wanted to recreate the classic pirate sound from my previous releases, such as my Black Pearl and Bottle Of Rum EPs. Fans often ask me about this, and I think I did it. It’s fun to combine all these synthesizer melodies, voices and basses together.

How does this project stand apart from the rest of your releases?
This EP is unique in its own way. It has fresh sounds in combination with the classic pirate sound of me.

How did you initially get into production?
In the 2000s, my older brother was fond of electronic music. He composed music on FL Studio. Without his knowledge, I opened his projects and changed everything in there. I really enjoyed it, and then I started creating my own tracks.

In three words, how would you describe yourself and your sound?
Bass. Pirates. Treasures.

Do you have anything you can share about what you have in the works as of late?
I am currently working on a new EP, which will include some VIPs of my some good old tracks.

Any last shout outs you want to give before we hit the mix?
Yeah, I’d like to thank my fans for their support. There will be a lot of interesting things ahead!
