The may look satirical on the outside, but these artists are not here to mess around. Heading over to Armada we are checking out “Brake”, the newest single from BROHUG and Saint Punk. Founded back in 2016 in Sweden by John Dahlbäck, Chris Lunde, and Niklas Lunde, BROHUG has amassed plenty of talent behind their satirical name. BROHUG has worked with the likes of Ghastly and Steve Angello, as well as dropping releases on labels such as Confession, Spinnin’ Records, Dim Mak, Musical Freedom, and now launching their own label BROHOUSE. 2019 may have been a year for back to back BROHUG hits, but 2020 has made quite the stage for these electro maestros.
Even though the name BROHUG might catch out eye, Saint Punk brings plenty to the table. Making a name for himself on a monumental United States tour last year, Saint Punk has been using this down time to sharpen his skills even further. Currently coming off of his sophomore release on his own imprint Graffiti Records, it will be interesting to watch as he discovers his own path.
“Since day one starting this collab with Saint Punk, we shared the same idea and vibe. It came together so easy, and it was fun working together on ‘Brake‘. The track contains a strong, powerful vocal chant, with a huge build and massive bass house drop to follow. We’re excited to share this to our combined fans!” – BROHUG
“The BROHUG guys and I began talking on IG over a year ago, always supporting each other’s music so coming together on this record was rad. We combined my grungy, gritty sound with their European bass-house sound and popped out ‘Brake‘.” – Saint Punk
After meeting on Instagram by sliding into each other’s DMs and supporting each other’s music, our artists today know they had to jump into the studio together. The result, “Brake”, is the latest single where BROHUG included a rather drastically different style into their own world. Saint Punk’s sound is filled with grittieness, and derives many elements from rock music, while BROHUG’s bass music is on a different spectrum. However, using grimy synths and distorted vocals completed BROHUG’s four on the floor approach Since 2020 has messed everything up, we have been missing a more mainstream grimy bass track to keep us company in isolation.
