In what finally amounts to a double initiation, Low Hanging Fruit unleashes the first full-length offering from both the label and the artist. We don’t really know if the young Bryan Kessler listened to Kraftwerk, but then again we didn’t ask – who cares, anyway? What’s certain, however, is that this punk renegade, songwriting wunderkind and all-around exceptional producer is a man of many faces, and all of them bang on a can. Discovered on stage while spouting anarchist pop slogans and showcasing an impressive underage mohawk haircut, he never was to be a bottled genius sticking to only one gun, and soon set out to become the lead singer and guitarist for neo punk nutters The Pollywogs, while embarking on an equally public career as prolific DJ and dance music producer.
After powerful contributions to imprints such as Get Physical (where he got proudly remixed by DJ Hell), Cómeme or LIKE Records, Bryan follows up with excitingly raunchy material on our little fringe rave imprint distributed via Kompakt: his de-facto album debut "Cologne Is For Brainfuckers" holds 12 block- and balls-busting techno jams ready to shatter expectations as well as continents, all effed up with the most scattershot array of wicked samples this side of beatnik madness. Some mighty fine electronic swagger (and a hearty disrespect for genre norms) is obviously at work here, with influences ranging from no-wave to post-bass mindmelters.
