Our 42nd exclusive FACT mix is the work of Bronnt Industries Kapital.
B.I.K. is the project of Guy ‘Bronnt’ Bartell, a Bristol-based producer/multi-instrumentalist who was paying homage to krautrock and the schlocky, lo-fi synth-odysseys of Goblin and John Carpenter soundtracks way, way before the hipsters moved in. You may be familiar with his debut Untitled EP (Silent Age, 2002) or, more likely, his releases on the impossibleto pigeonhole Static Caravan imprint – including the lathe-cut 'Brocken’ 7" and the beautifully textured Virtute et Industriaalbum.
In 2002 Bronnt consummated his lifelong love of occult moviemusic, providing an original soundtrack for the Tartan DVD release for Häxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages, Benjamin Christensen’s sublime and unsettling silent film of 1922.
