It’s gonna be a long, hot Summer (well, maybe), and here’s your soundtrack.

Brenmar – raised in Chicago, based between New York and Los Angeles – has been one of the States’ most promising DJs and producers for several years now. A former drummer in the group These Are Powers, he was also briefly involved in Venus X’s GHE20 G0TH1K club night, before making a name for himself on both sides of the Atlantic in 2010, with a series of well-received edits – Teengirl Fantasy, Jamie Foxx, Aaliayh and more in his sight. In 2011, his focus shifted to his own productions, with releases coming on Grizzly, Discobelle and Hum & Buzz.

If we’re honest though, we asked Brenmar for a mix because he’s just such a good DJ. Yes, shifting between genres is hardly a big deal in 2012, but on any given night you could catch Brenmar running hip-hop, reggaeton, grime or footwork, and doing it better than most specialists in those areas. He’s also got that unmistakably American swagger behind the decks that’s so rare in an age of boys raised on the Internet. And so, on his 36-track FACT mix you’ll find UK Funky tag-team Ill Blu, Diplomats’ Jim Jones, DJ Rashad, Supreme Cuts and more sharing space, with first plays of Brenmar’s next Grizzly single, a cover of Kevin Irving’s Trax Records classic ‘Children of the Night’, and collaborations with Nina Sky and DJ Sliink.
