The Beat Broker
The Beat Broker
The vast music library opened the door to a variety of electronic music and led to the late-night experimental soundscape show called 'WIRETAP' which became the first step into DJing and studio time. With production partner Ryan Fitzgerald, the two decided to record their sessions and eventually have a studio of their own. They later became Broker/Dealer and have released music on labels such as ASPHODEL, SPECTRAL, TRAUM and SENTRALL. The Beat Broker began DJing outside of the bedroom in 2001 playing everything from German minimal techno to classic 80s electro to italian disco. As part of Broker/Dealer, the duo created a monthly/weekly party in San Francisco called 'POP', which in its 5 years, had hosted many popular acts such as Erland Oye, Brennan Green and Tako/Loud-E.
To create just the right mood, the Beat Broker began to make edits, remixes and even original tracks to mix into the night. From slower "cosmic" music for the beginning of the night to up-tempo synthesizer based crowd pleasers for the peak hours. These productions later became completed works and have been released on labels such as FLEXX, DISQUES SINTHOMME, GHOST TOWN and soon SENTRALL. In the last year the Broker has been working late in his office doing tracks and remixes for Eskimo, Add2Basket, Rebirth and Internasjonal to name a few.
While continuing to make remixes and original tracks, the Beat Broker is constantly attempting to fuse old sounds with new ideas and create something for the crowd as well as the listener.
