Philippe Bronchtein is Bearplane, the one-man DJ-Dancemaster-Freakfest out of Middlebury, Vermont. For one man in a tiny little town, Bearplane sounds pretty damn huge. Easy to listen to, but never stale or repetitive, Bearplane's tracks are interesting and technically precise. And with only 2 albums out, I expect he will keep on making groovy music for quite a while--hopefully gaining some well-deserved popularity as well.
And yes. That is a bear. riding a shark. with a machine gun. radical
Bearplane - The Weekend (It's Got to be Phonkay)
