Biography

A mainstay of the British downtempo scene for over 10 years, Tripswitch (Nick Brennan) achieved a worldwide reputation as a meticulous and talented producer with the release of his first album ‘Circuit Breaker’ on Youth’s Liquid Sound Design label in 2005. With a 4* review in DJ magazine, praise from Anoushka Shankar in the New York Times, BBC Radio 1 airplay as well as support from the likes of Nick Warren (Way Out West), Jose Padilla (Cafe del Mar) and Claude Challe (Buddha Bar), who all picked up tracks for their own compilations, the album is widely held up as a classic in the psy-chill genre.

Nick launched his own label Section Records in 2010 with the release of the 2nd Tripswitch long player “Geometry”, followed by a string of critically acclaimed singles and EPs which have attracted support from the likes of Orbital, Chris Lake, Mumdance, Way Out West and Kasey Taylor and glowing reviews in the music glossies. He is currently working on a 3rd Tripswitch LP, as well as albums and singles under his codemonkey (bass music) and Nick Brennan (progressive house) pseudonyms.

Nick has contributed pro tips to Computer Music magazine, works closely with Pioneer Pro DJ and his guest mixes have been featured on radio shows/ stations such as Ninja Tunes Solid Steel, Radio 1 CZ, Camden Roundhouse Radio and RTE Pulse.

His touring schedule has become increasingly packed, already racking up appearances on five continents in the first 3 months of 2013. He is also an in-demand remixer, supplying his treatment to tracks by The Orb, System 7, Banco De Gaia, Nick Warren, Kaya Project, Joey Fehrenbach, Abakus, High Frequency Bandwidth, and Glenn Morrison, among others.
