Each moment of our lives we are making decisions, and the results will be the path we are paving
for ourselves .
Face the Music is us, it’s our decisions, it's our choices, it’s our path. It is literally is the point where
you meet my music and my soul.
During the album creation I went through a process as an artist and as a person. I realized that
beside the message and the music content that I would like to deliver, I’m also seeking my own
unique sound that will wrap it all.
As a result, I switched my equipment and sound to analog. This analog world made me change the
way I think about sound in general, and the change occurred as a result of digging deeper into it. I
wanted to take this dynamic that exists in the analog world and bring it forward into my music. To
make it more loose and live, less compressed, more emotional, less technical.
I feel I’ve succeeded in doing this.
The whole process took me four years. and I'm happy with each second of it, since the path is
more important for me than the result
This album is dedicated to life and death, and what’s in between them.
To my father - Itzhak Brilant RIP and to my soon to be born daughter- Mila Brilant.
The analog equipment I’ve used for the album:

The story of Iboga Records began in the beginning of the 90´s when an organization called “Rotundum” arranged several events in the period between 1990-97 in the greater area of Copenhagen, Denmark. Dj's Amon, Banel, and Emok were 3 of the 25 involved in the group, and after years of event organizing & performing, the idea of a Copenhagen record label, a platform for a new progressive electronic sound was beginning to take shape.
A studio was started, and in 1993 the first C.D. compilation (Tabernanthe) was released. It consisted mainly of the newest and freshest Scandinavian sounds of that time, and it was in these early days that the artists Beat Bizarre, Phony Orphants, Oryx, Reefer Decree, and Lurifax, made their first groundbreaking releases and started to build a very strong reputation on the Iboga label.
Today the Iboga artist roster includes names such as Behind Blue Eyes, Phony Orphants, Antix, FREq, Liquid Soul, Perfect Stranger, Sun Control Species, Flowjob, Ace Ventura, Beat Bizarre, and Reefer Decree.
Furthermore Iboga records have a sub label, “Sofa Beats” (downbeat and chill-out / ambient). Since the early days Banel & Emok have been working hard on establishing the label on a global level. It is one of the leading in its genre and they assure that the label will keep delivering those beautiful & amazing sounds that have become the trademark of Iboga Records.
