Brace Brace is a dark and driving techno record label and their new peak time release comes from label co-founder Isoskeles.
Christos Vlachakis aka Isoskeles is a Greek artist from Athens who is currently based in Berlin, Germany. He is an up-and-coming talent who has already carved out a name for himself within the Athenian and the Berlin club scene running the Brace Brace events and video casts, which have played host to icons ranging from Thomas Schumacher (Electric Ballroom/Drumcode) to Boris (Berghain/Ostgut Ton)
Isoskeles’ style fuses heavy percussion and industrial sound design with dark atmosphere to create a menacing intensity that’s perfect for the dance floor.
“Fired Self Employed” had a pounding kick drum layered with flickering hi-hats and a rumbling bassline that creates a foundation for the eerie tones of the lead synth. Its thickset synth stabs add further ferocity to this rampaging track’s unstoppable momentum.
“Gut Feeling” has deep and ominous atmospherics combined with brutal percussion sequenced into fast-paced rhythms. Its thrashing hi-hats and slamming kick drum are not for the faint-hearted, and the monstrous synth develops as the track unfolds to deliver a devastating groove.
