Having just clocked in at No. 2 on Dancing Astronaut’s Breakout Artists of 2019, Boris Brejcha continues his hot-streak of genre-bending club releases with “Lieblingsmensch,” his next successive single on Ultra Records in almost as many months. Translated to “favorite human ever,” “Lieblingsmensch” ticks all the boxes that make his tunes so matter-of-factly Boris.
A healthy balance of in-your-face light/dark elements? Check. How about a bottomless toolbox of uniquely textured elements? Check. Melodic twists and turns? Those, too.
Sure, his style revolves around the build/drop dynamic, but between his understanding of dance music and sophisticated songwriting, even that takes a refreshing spin through the cosmic corridors of “Lieblingsmensch.”
Brejcha is no newcomer to the electronic zeitgeist. He’s been known for minimal and techier sounds since much earlier in the now dwindling decade. But those who have seen him behind the decks as of late likely remember this release for the lynchpin that it is in his current mix/live set setup.
Boris Brejcha’s upcoming LP, Space Diver, is expected out on Ultra Records this coming January.
