Brooklyn by way of Chicago based DJ and producer, Brenmar, represents a strange musical paradox.

Brenmar’s more ‘unofficial’ online releases have also been gobbled up by the taste-making blogs and DJs of the world. His recipe for success? Take a pinch of Mannie Fresh snares, a handful of DJ Rashad toms, a dose of basslines from the UK, a generous portion of Hot 97 vocalists, poach it all in a synthesizer broth, and garnish with some Timbaland sheen.
