If there’s one thing we love here at Nexus Radio, it’s the chance to sit down and chat with some of the most exciting talents in the EDM world, and this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event was the perfect opportunity to do just that. Among the artists we spoke to this year was the incredible Californian Singer/Songwriter known as Brando. Best known for tracks like “Yes or No,” “Body,” and “All Night,” Brando has only been active in the industry for a few years, but in that short space of time, he’s already made quite a name for himself.
“I’m mainly a vocalist,” says Brando, “not a producer.” This remark is key to understanding his creative process because, as anyone who’s listened to Brando’s music will know, there is always a strong focus on exciting and original vocal tracks. In particular, he says he’s recently been working to bring more vocal layering into his songs to get the right sound.
All in all, it’s clear that Brando brings a great deal of energy to his creative process, but he seems to get just as much out of it. When asked to define EDM, he described it as “a beat-driven genre that’s mainly focused on giving energy to a situation”. Brando’s music certainly helps give us energy, and we can’t wait to see what amazing tracks he’ll put out next.
