More Info:

Brenk Sinatra is your favourite producer's favourite producer. The Wien-Kaisermuehlen homeboy is a mystical figure. A Westcoast rap fanatic and hardcore producer, Brenk is one of the most complete European beatmakers. You can't pinpoint his sound but you know immediately that it's him when you hear a Brenk production. Westcoast Gangsta-rap and grimey Detroit rap are as present in his music as sweet soul from the 60ties + 70ties - all chopped to the max and iced out with analogue Korg lines. On Sep 2, the Viennese beatsmith returns with "Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)", the follow-up to his slept on instrumental masterpiece "Gumbo" (Supercity, 2008). Added to Chop Shop, his Hi-Hat Club collabo with Fid Mella, this is Brenk Sinatra's third all instrumental LP in three years. Since "Ole Woam", his first 7" on MPM, Brenk has established himself as one of the most promising international beatheads. Besides lacing tracks for an armada of Austrian and German MC's (e.g. Kamp, Kayo), the Kaiserm├╝hlen representant has worked with the likes of Guilty Simpson, King Tee, DJ Premier or MarvWon and produced all of MC Eiht's upcoming full length album "Which Way Iz West" (Year Round Records). Most recently Brenk has finished "S3" (Super Soul Shit), an album with MPM singer Miles Bonny, who features on "Gumbo II"'s "Dedicated". Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly) marks a new state of the art for sample-based productions. Taking his trademark formula to perfection, Brenk brings together 70's soul with twisted electronica, analogue korg lines, Lil John ad-libs and police sirens, all backed by the most relentless grooves and drum-loops. While every track works for itself, "Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)" takes you on a heavy ride through music history: From the embracing Brazilian sounds of "Perdido" to the grimey talkbox craze of "Wolves 2 (Still Hungy)" and the prog-rock stompin' "Hit U". "Brenk Sinatra, he's got the funk." - DJ Premier "Brenk is one fantastic producer and a very cool dude." - Guilty Simpson "Brenk's beats are pure fire! We had a connection right from the start" - MC Eiht
