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:
Nord electro 6d
The year was 1997, and the great tree of electronic dance music continued to expand and split into various branches and their native tribes. Psychedelic trance was in full swing, with its staccato kick drums, high BPMs, and consciousness-expanding synth patterns. To some, it was more than a music style - it represented a way of life. Thus it was for Emok and Banel, two young Danish DJ/producers who fully leaned in and came together in Copenhagen to establish what would become one of the longest lasting and most universally respected labels in the psy-trance underground. Ace Ventura, Liquid Soul, Captain Hook, just some of the superstars of the scene that have been loyal mainstays on the label's release calendar over the years, but never detracting from the label's ethos of developing new artists through unity, collaboration, and steadfast support. In 2022, Emok and Banel still wake up every day thinking about their core values of connection, passion and ultimately a zest for life. And of course: heart-racing, foot-stomping, and mind-expanding beats!
