In the summer of 2020, a group of outsider artists from various realms of internet electronic music started manipulating brostep into intangible ambient soundscapes. It was the dawn of brobient. Or brone. No one has really come to a solid conclusion, but that's besides the point. It's drone and ambient made out of brostep, okay? In the 5 months since the release of Toze H's seminal album, Pussy Fridge, the brobient roster expanded and continually saw new ideas that challenged the notion of what this genre could be. A challenge of masculinity? A portrait of a field lost in time? A tinnitus speedrun? We're here to say that all of the above are true.
Vivarium Recordings has been very pleased to welcome a number of brobient artists on our stage. On this day, the 5 month anniversary of that bizarre album with the top tier name and new strange sound (because why would we pick something proper like 6 months or a full year), the elusive no29 has compiled some of the most dizzying music not yet utilized at Guantanamo. This is Selected Brobient Works, Vol. 1.
Selected Brobient Works, Vol. 1 was written and produced by The Brone Hivemind.
Recorded and mastereddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd///////////.

This record is what it feels like to come home from a long day at work and sink into the couch like quicksand only to be dragged into a world of soft rainclowds through your otherwise regular living room furniture. I like mellom_bar

The whole album has a super cohesive sound that fits well with the themes the artist succeeds in conveying. For me, it is a full album listening experience that is equal parts transportive and meditative. After a couple back to back listens, if I had to choose, EcoScapes may be the stand out moment for me. I felt connected to the ebb and flow of the phase-driven harmony, and loved the sparkle of the acoustic guitar that floated above and was woven into the pitter patter of soaking wet hi-hats. sleepsearch
