Brian Grainger

Real Name:
Brian Grainger
Profile:
Brian Grainger was born in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in 1983, and since 1997 he has amassed hundreds of recordings under various monikers and in collaboration with others. His most prominent projects have been Milieu, Coppice Halifax and works produced simply as Brian Grainger. In 2004 he began a small mailing list that eventually grew into the Milieu Music mailorder label that he maintains today. In 2006 he found a business partner and collaborator in David Tagg and the two founded Second Sun Recordings together. During this time Brian also assisted David with his already established Expanding Electronic Diversity label, until operations were moved to the newer Install imprint in 2007 and by 2009, EED closed its doors. Today Brian continues to release a steady stream of his own works via Milieu Music and coordinates both SSR and Install with David Tagg. He currently resides in Columbia, SC with his wife Sophia and their pets.

There is some excellent music from this artist, really very good indeed but It's impossible to keep track of his output simply because there is just such an enormous - and I mean huge - back catalogue of works, many under different names i.e. Coppice Halifax, Pink Space, Milieu, Parallax, The Analog Botanist. I have listened to a lot of his music and used to collect it about 5 years ago but just couldn't keep up with his release schedule (or afford it).
He is definitely worth checking out if you like electronic/drone/techno/krautrock/ambient sounds as you are bound to find something you like.
For newcomers I would recommend 'Eufloria' - 'Workingman's Drone Year One' - 'Pawley's Island' - 'White Demon Disco' - 'Midnight Snax' - 'Academy Stripes' and the 'Analog Botany Box Set' any of those 7 releases will give you a good idea of the different styles he gets in to.
Keep up the good work Brian!
