HOMIELAND VOL. 2

The second volume of Bromance’s Homieland is here. We got the bros together for a full debrief.

C’mon, we all know about Bromance, we won’t insult by going through the ins and outs of Brodinski’s influential and achingly-cool label, just know that the second compilation tape is here. Homieland Vol. 2 sees all the boys back together again. Treat yourself to a mammoth 24 tracks from the likes of Brodinski himself, Sam Tiba, Myd and Panteros666. Major Lazer founder, Switch, makes an appearance alongside actor Omar Doom who releases his production work under Straight Razor plus skater-cum-producer Tommy Kruise. We’re not even halfway through the list.

We’ll let you discover the magic yourself and join the coolest gang of tastemakers there is going with Guillaume Berg’s minimix. While you listen, get the lowdown from all the homies we could find.

DISTAL

We’re all about the Bromance but which track other than your own do you wish you’d written on Homieland Vol.2?

Maelstrom – “Arteries”. Just so raw and simple. You know this would work so well on the dance floor.

Tell us about your contribution.

I wanted to write an uncomplicated DJ tool that had some ballroom affinity to it. This kind of music is fun to make to me. Just playing with a clean loop idea and how you can interchange different patterns for different results, and not worry about trying to create a song with structure. I think that’s everyone’s favourite part about writing computerized music, and I feel that’s what makes music like Hip Hop and Rap so fun to produce as well.

What have you been up to other than your work for the compilation?

I’ve been working hard on a release schedule for my music this year. Releasing on multiple labels with multiple EP’s and an album. I’ve got 2 albums done actually. One of the albums will be more of what I posted about in the last question and the other has an experimental approach and is a bit more robust in design and should include a 3D VR music video with it as well. The video is done with pre-production I’m just scouring for investors to make it a reality.

As far as my label Anarchostar is concerned, we’re pressing the next release with DJ Vague aka Helix right now. If you didn’t know, my label Anarchostar is centred around a dystopian science fiction story that I’ve written. Each release will get its own story to play into the larger overall story of the Anarchostar. I won’t reveal too much right now as the web comic is coming to completion and you should be able to read it in a few weeks. We’ve produced an animated music video for that one that will be dropping realistically in April when the release comes out. I really try to put as much as I can into each release to make sure it’s as close to perfect as I can make it. I really love that side of my career. It’s fun to take a different role.

Other than all that I’m reading comics, going to the cinema, writing jokes, playing with my cats, hiking with the wife and smoking weed in my new home of Seattle.

WITH YOU

We’re all about the Bromance but which track other than your own do you wish you’d written on Homieland Vol.2?

“Blood Mind” by Sister City.

Tell us about your contribution, why should your track be our favorite?

Our track should be your favourite track because it’s the best song ever made with human body parts.

What have you been up to other than your work for the compilation?

We’ve been working on our next releases, which will be a record with Idris Elba, a mixtape this spring as well as remixes for Jeremih, DJ Mustard and Dua Lipa.

Feral

We’re all about the Bromance but which track other than your own do you wish you’d written on Homieland Vol.2?

“Blood Mind” from Sister City is so brutal, I love it. It starts off pretty unassuming, but has this way of creeping up on you. It’s so perfectly set up that by the time that first kick drum comes in, it hits you like a baseball bat. It would be a perfect match for your Raya account.

Tell us about your contribution, why should your track be our favourite?

My track is called “WASP”. For me the most interesting part of making music is in adding details. “WASP” is funny because the theme is really only one chord, but it has a hundred tiny details moving and shifting around you that give it life. On the surface I think it gives this impression of just being a banger, but there are so many little twists and turns in there I think once you look under the hood, those details make it more fun to listen to.

What have you been up to other than your work for the compilation?

“WASP” is a part of a longer EP I’ve just finished putting together, which will hopefully be out pretty soon. Apart from that, I’m working on being better about saying goodbye before I leave a party.

GENER8ION

We’re all about the Bromance but which track other than your own do you wish you’d written on Homieland Vol.2?

Brodinski & Shy Glizzy – “Woah”. It’s going to be a hit.

Tell us about your contribution.

It’s pretty hard to define, crossing over different genres. It’s not really club music. Maybe “stadium music for a sunset at the beach”, which sounds a bit contradictory. But you’ll understand when you hear it.

What have you been up to other than your work for the compilation?

I’m working on the visual magazine of GENER8ION, called Unite Or Perish and featuring the work of people linked to the project. And a new EP on Bromance!

THE BLAZE

We’re all about the Bromance but which track other than your own do you wish you’d written on Homieland Vol.2?

“Woah”, Brodinski & Shy Glizzy, “Voxes Roll”, Canblaster.

Tell us about your contribution, why should your track be our favorite?

We composed “Virile” as a song you could sing the chorus along with you friends. We conceived that song for that moment when you’re at a party and you let everything go, the moment when you share your intimacy with the others. According to us, references are pointless, we won’t give any. We could just do some name-dropping but it’s up to you to decide if it’s relevant or not.

What have you been up to other than your work for the compilation?

In 2015, we laid the foundations for the Blaze, and in 2016, it finally comes to life. Usually, blazes spread quickly, don’t they? I guess you’ll hear about us pretty soon, things we’d rather talk about when they’ll be out. Advertising is not our thing. For the time being, we’ll just say that we’ll back very soon.

Homieland Vol. 2 is out now.
