bEEdEEgEE is the performing alias of Brian DeGraw, an American artist, musician and producer who lives and works between the inner city and the Catskill region of New York state. Most commonly known in the world for his work at the centre of Gang Gang Dance and their musical mastery, SUM/ONE is his debut record as a solo artist.
Written and recorded over the course of a year in his Woodstock studio, the W0RMB1N, SUM/ONE fuses deep synth soundscapes with audacious pop moments. The nine tracks that comprise SUM/ONE also feature the vocal talents of Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Lovefoxxx (CSS), Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance) and Douglas Armour.
SUM/ONE initially began life when Brian left New York City – his home for the past fifteen years – for the clouds of Woodstock, and it was here that audio sketches evolved into a record that fuses deep synth soundscapes with audacious pop moments.
SUM/ONE will be released on CD, vinyl and digitally in Australia on Friday November 29.
