Brain LeisureA one-man dark electro project hailing from France.
Brain Leisure is a one-man dark electro project hailing from France. In the late 80's and early 90's, Dominique Debert was heavily influenced by Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, Numb, the Klinik, Vomito Negro and last but not least Leaether strip. He recorded his first (and last) demo "No TV Sketches, Realities of Fight" in 1992. The highly sought-after tape received positive reviews from the alternative music press, and served as a prelude to Brain Leisure's participation on 1993's classic electro compilations "Blood & Computers 1" (Paradise Movement) and "French/Belgium Industries-Fabriquations 1" (Machinery Records).
In 1994, Hard Records released Brain Leisure's critically-acclaimed debut "Mindfire". Recognized for its intricate, multi-layered programming and excellent songwriting, the album features the instant club hits "Teknology", "Million Faces", "Deadful Hate", "Never Trust A Smile" & Beyond the Limits. Brain Leisure's amazing remixes for Wumpscut have propelled the band to the forefront of the alternative electronic scene, with legions of rivetheads anxiously awaiting new material.
Plagued by personal problems, Dominique was forced to retreat from the scene only to return stronger than ever! In 2006, Brain Leisure has staged a remarkable comeback and contributed amazing remixes to Tyske Ludder "Sojus" and Grandchaos "In Sedens" DCD. The two tracks offer some promising glimpses of what was yet to come.
Vendetta Music/EAR is proud to announce the release of Brain Leisure's much- anticipated second album, "Methods to Madness". Gems such as "Defect", "Crawl In Vain", "Resistance", "Behind the Mask" and "My Punishment" are going to take the electro scene by storm! The limited edition double CD features updated versions of "Never Trust A Smile", "Beyond the Limits" and "Deadful Hate" as well as remixes by top notch electro acts: Wumpscut, Velvet Acid Christ, Dismantled, Tyske Ludder, Trial, K.I.F.O.T.H, Last Influence of Brain, IC434 and many more.
