Brandon Markell Holmes re-releases three tracks on vinyl via toucan sounds, joined by a fresh remix from Derrick Carter.
Since first appearing on toucan sounds in 2020, Brandon Markell Holmes’ inimitable voice has seen him establish himself as a staple on the label. Now, the imprint collects three iconic appearances from the artist on vinyl, with an additional remix from legendary house lynchpin Derrick Carter. Originally released as part of a collaborative EP with Rogue Vogue, Derrick bumps up the tempo of ‘Someone Else’, introducing earworm keys and tough drums, while maintaining the warmth of Brandon’s vocals .
“I called Derrick on the phone and asked him to remix it a few weeks before I moved to NYC. He said he liked it, and he thought it made sense because he only does things that “make sense.” Not in a conservative or rigid way, but in the way that only a legendary talent and tastemaker makes sense of things.” – Brandon Markell Holmes
