Julien Bracht unveils new thumping techno single, 'Don't Chase Your Enemies'
The record embodies the dichotomous sounds of Berlin, the producer's home city
Julien Bracht has released his new single, 'Don't Chase Your Enemies', taken from his forthcoming EP 'Rave Flower'.
The single marks a switch up in Bracht's techno sound, showcasing his versatility across the genre, as previous releases have provided more melodic, euphoric affairs.
A pulsating and ferocious cut, it consists of a crunching acid bassline and punchy grooves with added layers of melodic sounds and synths.

The release is accompanied with visuals directed by Max Braun, which draws inspiration from the single title.
“This track came out of this roaring 101 bassline," explains Julien. "I was listening to a lot of raw 101 techno and was really inspired by it. When I had the kick and 101 right, I went down to the workshop in our garage and recorded everything out of metal I could find. After that I found this beautiful pluck sounds and it finished the track."
