Funky Fresh Fire
Brett & Randy met outside a Claptone show at Kingdom Nightclub in Austin, TX in July of 2016. After 1,249 tracks shared, countless traktor sessions, and a dozen-plus events attended together, the Funky Fresh Fire brand was spawned. Fast forward 6 months and the two have been nearly inseparable; the bromance strengthened by constant sharing of their respective styles of ear candy. Brett's musical flavor was based off Southern California’s booming underground House & Techno scene, where attending events like Desert Hearts, Minimal Effort, and Woogie Weekend shaped his musical being. Randy, on the other hand, lives on an island of happy vibes, filled with the likes of Pontchartrain, Young Pulse, and Oliver Nelson. A main contributor to Indie Discotheque, an online radio station, he spends his free time scouring the internet for the freshest flavors of disco, old and ’nu’, to share with his friends online. Together Brett and Randy curate a sound that sprints from heart-screaming disco to brooding, malevolent techno, with an acute appreciation for the ‘house’ that sits in between.
Brett aka Brettley5.0 went to his first electronic show in 2010 when a friend quite literally dragged him to this “low-key” festival called EDC. As I'm sure you can imagine, this was quite the introduction to the electronic music scene, as he danced his black ass off to Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Kaskade, and Dirty South. While main staging raving was fun, Brettley quickly familiarized and immersed himself into the extensive low-key house and techno scene that So Cal had to offer. He currently enjoys tech-house, deep-house, acid house, (eh, ALL house) with a heavy dose of funk and disco to prop up the good vibes. Like a sizable percentage of young Californians, Brettley now finds himself in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, TX, where he searches weekly to fill the house-shaped hole in his heart.
