Starting out as a drummer, Colorado producer Paul Brandt aka Paul Basic joined a band with Derek Vincent Smith (Pretty Lights) and Michal Menert in high school before they each moved on to pursue solo production work. In fall 2011 Paul released his debut EP ‘The Mirror’ on Pretty Lights Music which features a gritty, nostalgic sound blending dusty samples, grainy synths, biting bass and thick drums – a combination that earned him an integral place within the PLM movement.
Paul’s follow-up LP ‘Transient Horizons’ is a more refined delivery of his dark, heavy beats and shows a unique range of mood and musicality. The album features collaborations with Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, and Trophy Beats. Available now for free download from Pretty Lights Music.
