PRIX, aka Brian Tennessee Claflin, EP on Random Records out now!
My good friend, Brian Tennessee Claflin was a radical and fiery figure who worked on the fringes of Berlin’s art and nightlife scenes until his tragic death at the age of 33 in 2014. Brian ran the notorious Sunday soirée PORK at Ficken3000, and left behind a small but very powerful body of art. Between 2009 and 2013, he and I produced music and sound collages together, which met somewhere at the intersection of dance, voodoo, bitchiness and punk.
The Brian Tennessee Claflin Foundation and my label Random Records are very proud to finally
release two tracks from these sessions, as well as remixes, in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies on translucent yellow vinyl.
The first track showcased on the PRIX EP, entitled “Don’t Get All Upset”, addresses the politics and hypocrisy Brian confronted working in the world of nightlife. B-side “Spritz It” is nothing less than a gender fluid electro monster from the underground. Remixes come courtesy of Lotic and Bruce LaBruce vs. MADLICK. For DJs, an instrumental version of “Upset” is featured, as well as the “Spritzapella”, which must be heard to believed.
Each record is enclosed in hand-numbered covers designed by Brian’s friend and collaborator Mario Dzurila and comes with a free download of the full digital release. All sale proceeds go to the Brian Tennessee Claflin Foundation, which aims to maintain and promote Brian’s artistic legacy.
