New York and Miami based, by way of Chicago, Brenmar represents a strange musical paradox. Somehow defying the odds, he marries the gloss of commercial hiphop and r&b with the urban grittiness of underground styles like Chicago ghetto house, UK bass and Jersey Club.
2014’s self-released High End Times Vol. 1 - one of SPIN’s Best Overlooked Albums of 2014 - put him in the spotlight as a groundbreaking maestro for artists like Mykki Blanco, Sasha Go Hard, and Junglepussy. For his last official EP released in 2015, Brenmar entrusted the project to his friend A-Trak by signing with Brooklyn-based Fool’s Gold Records. The result was Award - a four song EP of hip-hop, r&b, and club music featuring Uniiqu3, Dougie F. and more. Outside of his own productions he is also a prolific remixer having remixed CharlieXCX, Rome Fortune, Rihanna, Chromeo and more.
In 2016 Brenmar released two singles, "She Already Know It" ft. Beatking, Manman Savage, and Jeff Chery and "Like A Boss" Ft. 2$ Fabo of D4L/Laffy Taffy fame on Fools Gold Records. He also launched his own music label "High End Times" which has been consistently putting out record after record of cutting edge hip hop and dance music. 2016 also saw Brenmar debut the "Grey Zone" monthly dj mix series and live party which has taken place in Austin, NY, DC, and Miami.
Brenmar kicked off 2017 with "I Need You" and "Watch Me Work", a return to form for the dj/producer who continues to forge new ground between dance music, hip hop, and r&b. He also released his first sample pack with Splice Sounds and held a remix competition with Audiomack which resulted in his latest body of work "The Collab Collection". Essentially crowdsourcing 4 new tracks made with 4 new up-and-coming producers from all over the world.
Equal parts dj as he is producer, he has toured across Europe, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Korea, Australia, and the USA.
"If Brenmar isn't in your top ten producers list when it comes to artists who make straight-to-the-point, dancefloor-ready club-and-party music you're not listening closely enough or simply haven't listened too enough of his music at all.” - Hypetrak
