André Bratten is a Norwegian music producer who’s part of the Norwegian Oslo-disco scene.
In 2013 came the first steep album “Be A Man You Ant” on the label Full Pupp.
He produced all the music with a modular synthesizer and drum machine. The album was recorded in the same studio space as the glorious trinity Lindstrøm, Todd Terje and Prins Thomas uses.

The music received positive coverage in both Norwegian and foreign media and reviewers declared him as Oslo's new "disco prince".
"Aegis" was favourably mentioned by Pitchfork reviewer Mike Powell, the track shows that "Bratten, as Lindstrøm and Todd Terje know how to make rainbows out of a narrow spectrum of sound ".

 

Like most kids in the late 1990s, he was bitten by the hip hop bug, but he also got turned on by the Led Zeppelin records he picked out from his father’s record collection. He’s broadminded enough to be into everything from the Norwegian electronica masters Røyksopp to Metro Area, Sigur Rós, Eno, Cluster and Weather Report. Andre’s tracks share the exploratory vibe of the 80s synth pop pioneers, and misfit electronic pop musicians like John Foxx, who were forced learning to sculpt new sounds with new tools. Yet he updates those sounds to a contemporary rhythm matrix, in parallel with the dayglo analogue dance music of the mentioned glorious trinity. Bratten’s tracks suggest a producer who is happy to take his own path.

Cosmic disco from beyond the mirror ball; expect a full-on synth love affair when Andre Bratten takes his modular and deep space grooves to Numusic Festival.
