Brandon Plank Beatport

Biography

Ever since the beginning of House music, Brandon has been into it. Growing up in Chicago, he got an early start in the rave, club and music scene. In the beginning, Brandon collected records so that he could make mix tapes to listen to on the way to and from school and parties, but with guidance from some buddies, he quickly learned the ropes of music and soon got booked for some small clubs and raves in the Chicagoland area.

In 1995, Brandon moved to California and once there, his love for house & techno made him one of Northern California’s favorites in the underground community. With residencies at clubs such as: The Amazon, Club 1080 and various raves he performed at, Brandon preached house and techno to all that would hear.

In 1999, he relocated to Denver, where he played at some of Colorado’s largest events for: Together, BASIC, Triad Dragons, Soma, Club Pure, Roofless and various other crews. While there, he played all across the country, from NYC to Chicago to South Dakota to Seattle, with some stops in Canada too. This was the time when he began to work on production and remix of music, feeling that the music he had in his head was something other people would want to hear. So in early 2002, when Brandon moved to Seattle, he started up the Depth Recordings label with his partner Eric.B; he oversees the management of the label and acquiring new talent. It was also at this time in his life that he started releasing the “Weekend Special” and “I Eat Techno For Breakfast” mix series, which have been linked to and posted all over the internet by various friends and fans.

Brandon’s DJ mixes have been hosted on radio sites and stations across the world, from Comfort Sessions in San Francisco, Heavy Industries in Los Angeles, all the way to MixTapes.de in Germany. Brandon has also been showcased on several radio stations in Hamburg and Berlin, Germany, along with Club Basement Radio show on 105.9 FM in Denmark. Currently, Brandon is working on releases for Depth and other labels like Nightlight Music, but you can catch him at one-offs and clubs across the country.

About his music:

Known for staying in mix transitions for 2 to 3 minutes or longer, Brandon’s mixes stretch the very limit of how long two or more tracks can be played. Listeners often comment that they have a hard time telling when he starts or finishes a mix between two records/CDs and it’s these long transitions, along with blending of genres that has given him name recognition across the map. A constant perfectionist, if you ask Brandon what he thinks of his sets, it’s usually “eh, it was OK,” but the crowd full of people dancing usually tells a different tale.
