As a studio and live musician for many German major artists, Johannes Brecht was able to build a reputation as a talented newcomer in recent years. A hardware whiz who acted mostly in the background – this is where Brecht felt most comfortable. Therefore, it makes little sense to pigeonhole the man from Stuttgart in only one genre.
With a few visits to the Netherlands already under his belt, Brecht is now returning to the low country during ADE for a performance at his newly found label: Diynamic. At Loveland’s Diynamic ADE Showcase this year, you will find many other artists from the Hamburg house imprint like Solomun, Adriatique, NTFO, H.O.S.H., Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Stimming, Karmon, Thyladomid, Magdalena and many more.
Brecht is responsible for all orchestral arrangements of Henrik Schwarz’ Instruments Album on Sony Classical. As Henrik Schwarz heard the first production of his band member, he decided to reactivate his label Sunday Music in January 2013 to release Brecht’s Holla EP. Unsurprisingly, very early Schwarz noticed Brecht’s virtuoso skills that have already been placed in Brecht’s childhood by a family of musicians. At the age of five he took lessons for classical piano, later he developed a passion for jazz music, which he channeled through his support in various bands as well as the construction of its first home studios. Logical step, study of jazz pop and double bass and electronic bass guitar at the music college in Stuttgart, who hired him later as a sound engineer.
After a few orchestra tours through Europe and Asia, Brecht developed his interest in popular music studio technologies and his enjoyment of club and electronic music. Although Brecht took his first steps into the light of attention in 2013, his latest projects exemplifies his quality as a producer, with a benchmark EP on Boso in the form of ‘Enjoy The Void’.
