Within the last few years, the Viennese beat giant Brenk Sinatra advanced to become one of the most important and most active producers in Europe. After lacing European artists like Casper, Olexesh, Morlockk Dilemma, Audio88 & Yassin with tailor-made beats, numerous US-rappers such as Mac Miller, B-Real, Kurupt, WC, Xzibit and Guilty Simpson recorded on Brenk’s instrumentals.
Brenk Sinatra‘s productions generate a lot of media interest as well as some airplay by international radio stations such as the Gilles Peterson’s “World Wide Show” on BBC1 or Eminem‘s radio station “Shade45”. When Brenk is not busy touring as part of the producer trio Betty Ford Boys he is working on the fine-tuning of MC Eiht’s upcoming album “Which Way Iz West” which is about to drop 2015 on DJ Premier’s label “Year Round Records”.(Being a member of the legendary crew “Compton’s Most Wanted”, MC Eiht became a West Coast Gangsta Rap legend. His role in the cult movie “Menace II Society” as well as numerous features with rap-giants like Snoop Dogg made him internationally famous.) For “Which Way Iz West“, DJ Premier is not only operating as the executive producer, he also contributed a number of beat productions for Eiht‘s musical comeback.
Besides Gangsta Rap from the West Coast and grimey Hip-Hop from Detroit, Brenk Sinatra‘s heart beats for Soul Music and Progressive Rock of the 1970s. This musical passion can be easily recognized by numerous samples used by the producer, but also becomes manifest in a project with Kansas City soul singer Miles Bonny. Together they founded the Band S3 (Supa Soul Shit), their self-titled album was released October 2012 and nomineed for the Austrian Amadeus Music Award.
After the release of Brenk Sinatra‘s instrumental debut „Gumbo“, the follow-up album GumboII which was pushed by DJ Premier and DJ House Shoes, made big waves among the beat-gourmets in Europe and the USA. Brenk’s upcoming album “Midnite Ride” coming out Oct. 16th 2015, will provide some new insight into his musical universe.
