Happy Thursday...next up in the interview series...repeat Juice Remixer, B-Phreak from Germany.
Interview by Kelly Ross/Agent 137.
Tell us - who are you?
My name is Bernie Ott (B-Phreak) and I’m a dj/ producer/ remixer of bass/ breakbeat orientated music from Germany.
Please give me a brief background on your dj/production experience:
I have been into bass/ breakbeat driven music for more than 20 years now. I started producing beats back in 1999 and djing worldwide for a much longer time. I had my first release back in 2002 plus a big list of orignals/ remixes I’ve done for many different labels. I was one of the first dj’s/ producer’s who brought the "German breakbeat“ sound to the world.
Tell us which remix you did for the IWSY remix album:
I remixed "Daft Bump".

What made you choose this particular song?
I really loved the sound/ energy of the original track!
What is your Wes Smith connection? Do you have any weird/funny stories when you met him? Anything else to say?
I have never met him personally, but some day…. who knows. Wes is a very nice guy and I made contact with him via Facebook/ Soundcloud! We love each others music and he asked me doing some tracks/ remixes for his label, Juice Recordings. I always loved the sound of his label, so it was a pleasure for me to release some tracks on Juice.
What’s next on next for you after this? Do you have any upcoming projects/remixes you would like to mention?
A new EP on Juice Recordings is planned in near future. I’ve already released a 4 track EP (Take Me High) on Martin Flex’s "Let’s Go!" label“. I also have a project with my homie Philly Blunt running and our next release will be on Rump Shaker Records in March called "Get Ya Head“ with upcoming remixes from Bradley Drop and Beatslappaz. Phil and I have planed to release some more tunes later this year as well.
