Drawing inspiration from artists including The Chemicals Brothers, The Knife and Bjork, BRUX’s cheeky and loud electronica sound comes from a place of frustration.
Her sound is quirky, raw and unapologetic.
BRUX invites us into her expansive world with the release of her new single “BADBOI” (w/ Pat Lok). The dynamite club track is anything but ordinary – “BADBOI” has an alluring vocal chop, analog synths and a gritty drumline, reminiscent of early Ed Banger productions. The intense track will undoubtedly stand out in your summer playlists.
A once mysterious and androgynous artist, only earlier this year did BRUX lift the veil behind her anonyminity to reveal her true self. Beyond her social media posts now containing photos of herself, the project’s assets are now revealing bits of her in piecemeal – starting off with her eye as the artwork for “BADBOI.”
“Badboi is a lively club track that was made with my good friend and collaborator Pat Lok (Kitsunè, Fools Gold). This track was inspired by early Edbanger releases and features a cutup vocal & analog synths riding over massive distorted drums. It’s mixed by Grammy Award winning legend Ariel Borujow who has roots in Hip Hop & Rap working closely with P Diddy & Notorious B.I.G.” – BRUX
“In the bleak darkness of covid I experimented for the first time creating several raw music loops from analog synths. I showed BRUX one of these climbing arp melodies and she loved it, which eventually inspired the demo that became Badboi. This record is pure raw energy and chaos, a song for a time where many people have lost their way and need to express their emotions uninhibited. If metal was a dance tune it would be this.” – Pat Lok
A Brooklyn-by-way-of-Sydney based artist, BRUX has a DIY approach to all aspects of her artist project. She styles her own shoots, creates her own merch, makes her own artwork, etc. Additionally, recent support from the web3 collectors of her BRUX NFT collection on Sound.xyz has allowed her to self fund this single and forthcoming EP.
With past releases on Dim Mak and Deadbeats, BRUX continues to break down barriers in dance music with her eclectic sound and style. Drawing inspiration from acts like The Chemicals Brothers, The Knife, Bjork and Joni Mitchell, her cheeky and loud electronica sound comes from a place of frustration. Overall the BRUX sound is quirky, raw and unapologetic – the music makes an intentional and loud statement in the scene. “BADBOI” is just a peek into new music coming from BRUX later this summer.

The realm of BRUX awaits. A raw and vivid ride into a visionary mind. With an analog punch of surrealist club-pop you’re in a space between genres, a place to explore fate, materialism and the pursuit of pleasure…
BRUX has silently entered the world’s collective psyche. After the release of her dark debut single “I’m Back” in 2018 on Dim Mak Records, BRUX’s name immediately seemed to be everywhere. Her first few months took her across continents, performing debut shows in Los Angeles, Sydney and Berlin, with opening support by artists from Fool’s Gold, Future Classic, OWSLA and Motorik. Later that year she appeared as a participant at the prestiged Red Bull Music Academy in Berlin. Her first three releases were lauded by Complex, Mixmag and Pop Matters, praising her fusion of analogue synths with otherworldly vocals. In her home of Australia, she has recorded exclusive mixes for Triple J and FBI Radio, was handpicked by Triple J for her festival debut at FOMO Sydney, and has embarked on and planned multiple national tours.
2020 cemented BRUX’s place in the sphere of dance music, with her debut Fruit EP being celebrated as an emerging artist to watch by Billboard, Rolling Stone and DJ Times and receiving rotation on Triple J.
