YouTube Sessions: Brenmar

Ahead of Monday’s new single, we invited Brenmar to give a little insight into the music that makes him tick. As you might expect if you’ve ever seen him DJ, his YouTube Session blends hip-hop and r&b with dance music, specifically house and Chicago footwork, with a sprightly theme running throughout.

His forthcoming single, ‘Children of the Night,’ sees Brenmar return to Sinden‘s Grizzly label; reworking Kevin Irving’s 1987 classic, adding skewed vocals and somber synth work and a club-ready ‘House Mix’ on the flip. It’s easy to see how all the influences shown in this YouTube selection filter through into his production; the end product being very US-sounding, unrestricted, part(a)y music.

1. DJ Rashad – Juke Dat Juke Dat (Feat Gant Man)

“One of my favorite juke tracks, this was a house party favorite growing up in Chicago.”

2. The-Dream – Love VS Money

“One of my favorite songs by my favorite RnB singer.”

3. MK – Love Changes feat. Alana

“Love love love this one, feels so good.”

4. 3LW – No More (Baby Ima Do Right) (8 Jam Remix)

“A wonderful classic remix of an already classic rad tune.”

5. Aka Frank – My Dick Ain’t Racist

“No discrimination here, this one’s going to be big.”

6. Davido – Overseas

“The new one from Davido is so perfect.”

7. Meleka – Go (Crazy Cousins Remix)

“This song got me back into dance music at a time in my life when I was really bored with it.”

8. Fat Trel – Fukkk Da Fedz feat. Chief Keef

“Fat Trel and Keef murder this Lex Luger beat, LOVE this in da club.”

9. Soulja Boy – All Black Everything

“All black everything is a way of life, plus this beat knocks.”

10. Dj Sega – Be

“I’ve opened up many of my sets with this one, works everytime”
