Pepe Bradock - Not Just Deep Burnt!

a safe space for pepe enthusiasts to share and discuss the man’s work… honestly i am shocked his career has been so long and multi-faceted. love his older deeper stuff obviously, but also a lot of the stuff he’s put out the past ten years, which is so obtuse, fresh and forward-thinking.

also has anyone seen him DJ? i’ve heard that he did a fair amount of gigs in the late 90s / early 00s but doesn’t seem to have played much the last 10 years so wondering how he makes a living…

a few tracks that have gutted me over the years:

Vermeille

Le Theme De Pierre Le Cosmonaute

Always thought this was a bit underrated, compared to Deep Burnt anyway

He’s a flipping brilliant producer. He’s got that Dilla thing through house ears and it’s all very natural. Just messing with beats all day long.

Always had a soft spot for this one…with a cheeky little Phylyps Trak sample if I’m not mistaken

“Deep Burnt” is one of those tunes that I feel should be reserved for special moments only. I once heard it played in an early warm-up set between some mellow disco-house and was nearly offended!

He’s a genius for sure, and seems to be a genuine oddball too. I think this is my favorite track of his- “Ghost”.

Quality producer

That recent Cinematic Orchestra one is v nice.

Got a few faves but this is the modern classic

agreed, this one is masterful

yes of course, that one is huge. a real journey full of emotion.

Funny most ppl still just posted his older shit. He is popping up on social media and recently replied to a tweet where I heavily criticized his more recent music. I was right so I don’t feel bad lol. But it sounds from his newest record that maybe he was taking some of that to heart, def a step in the right direction.
