Bronnt Industries Kapital

Electro-acoustic melancholy

Bronnt Industries Kapital is the work of UK-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Guy Bartell, who has spent eight years exploring deep frosts of electro-acoustic melancholy, slow-burning sonic terrain and uncharted detours into the absurd. ‘Hard For Justice’ is his third full-length and fully illuminated album, for which he has drawn as much inspiration from myriad marginal movies as from the dance roots of Krautrock, striking a likeable partnership with pioneering German dance label Get Physical. Bronnt labours a lust for long-forgotten cinema in ‘Hard For Justice’, resurrecting an era of psychotronic exploitation, Italo-crime and no-budget action thrillers, such as The Beyond, Deadbeat at Dawn, Profondo Rosso, and the towering sound-visions of John Carpenter. Bronnt’s first album ‘Virtute et Industria’, released in 2005 by revered UK independent imprint Static Caravan, created a gas-lit sound world populated by clockwork Victorian automatons spinning dancehall and techno on a set of battered gramophones. This was followed by ‘Haxan’, a bespoke soundtrack to the 1920s silent witchcraft movie of the same name commissioned by Tartan Films in 2007, which complemented this stunning cult film with a score that ranged from minimalist piano lullabies to lush full orchestral pieces, heavenly analog sound collages to hellish electrical miasmas.
