There’s been a decent amount of alternative or indie pop posted here in the past few weeks, but we haven’t really indulged our DJ side too much here. However, this past week, I came across Tripswitch and fell in love with it.
Tripswitch is Nick Brennan, a musician from the UK who’s been playing various instruments since the age of 5. Later in his musician career, he moved toward spinning and now incorporates his guitar and piano abilities into his trance sound. The sound is like trance Thievery Corporation or King Kooba.
Tripswitch has only released one full-length album called Circuit Breaker. Brennan released some harder hitting music under another name, Codemonkey, and is working on another full-length album as Tripswitch.
There are a few videos for Tripswitch out there – most notably for “Roll Your Own.” Interesting that the video seems to use graphics straight from the iTunes player, which while it seems obvious, I can’t say I’ve ever seen it before.
This is “Roll Your Own” from Tripswitch…
