Alan Fitzpatrick 'We Do What We Want' (recorded live at Hideout Festival 2016)

‘We Do What We Want’ will be the first release on Alan Fitzpatrick's We Are The Brave label. A cut that took on a life of its own after fan videos from Junction 2 and Hideout Festival sparked hysteria among followers on Twitter for the as-then unnamed track. Finally revealed during BBC Radio 1’s broadcast of Alan’s set from Hideout Festival, ‘We Do What We Want’ is a euphoric slice of summer rave that’s already showing signs of being Fitzpatrick's biggest track to date. Stay tuned to the We Are The Brave channels for more information on future releases and events, as well as visual art and a clothing range, designed by Fitzpatrick himself.

4. Alan Fitzpatrick - They All Called' Em Garys

Alan Fitzpatrick - They All Called' Em Garys

We Are The Brave front man Alan Fitzpatrick provides the labels next release with a typically incendiary two-tracker. Delving deep into his record collection for inspiration, the result is a brace of distinct, ear-catching cuts that tip a hat to by-gone times in rave culture and have returned big reactions from contemporary crowds all summer. The aptly titled “They All Called ‘Em Garys” combines droning hardcore hoovers and power piano with Fitzpatrick’s trademark heavy tech funk. While “Rhino” adopts a slung-back groove of resounding bass and tense pads overlaid with a knockout melody that bubbles away before unleashing its full chord progression through an unashamedly epic breakdown.

5. Alan Fitzpatrick - Skeksis (Drunk & High Mix)

Alan Fitzpatrick - Skeksis (Drunk & High Mix)

Well, 2016 was a bit of a mixed bag wasn't it? It's certainly a year that I wont forget in a hurry - for all sorts of reasons - good and bad. However the one common denominator throughout pretty much all of it has been music. Whether its what you turn too to make you happy or whether its the cause of what occasionally makes you sad, there is no denying that music is the one thing that brings us all together to share what is best about being a human. So here's to sharing and caring. We can all do more of both in 2017 but I want to sign off for the holidays by saying a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you all for caring about my music. As for the sharing, I'll start us off with this... ;) Special thanks to Flow & Zeo for letting me use their acappella https://wearethebrave.co.uk

6. Boxia - Point Of No Return

Boxia - Point Of No Return

@Boxia To say this release has caused a bit of a stir would be an understatement! If you were lucky enough to find yourself at closing sets at Movement Detroit, Pressure Glasgow, Junction 2 London, Summer Story Madrid, Governors Island New York, Rebel Toronto, Awakenings Amsterdam or Glastonbury, there is no doubt you would have pulled a face when you heard 'Point of No Return' for the first time. We've lost count of the amount of fan videos, ID requests we've received on the whole EP. The euphoric anthems have gained considerable support from techno heavyweights from across the globe. DJs, promoters and punters concur there will be no return from this point in Boxia’s auspicious career.

7. Alan Fitzpatrick - Friday Night Dancing (Skream Remix)

Alan Fitzpatrick - Friday Night Dancing (Skream Remix)

We could spend the next three paragraphs banging on about the monumental impact our first release ‘We Do What We Want’ had, but to be totally honest with you, we are tired of the track now and just want to move on to the raft of equally amazing music we have lined up for release on We Are The Brave. However, in case you were living under a rock this summer, the key facts you should make a note of are as follows: it was the unofficial anthem for ravers from Hideout Festival to Creamfields. Annie Mac went mental for it on Radio 1. We got snapchats from school kids buzzing off the track and tweets from retailers playing it in their shops. It was even heard in KFC! And our soundcloud stream went into virtual meltdown clocking up 315K listens in under three months. So yeah, not much to live up to… but you know what? We Are The Brave, we do what we want… and we want to get on to release number two! It’s called Friday Night Dancing. It’s by Alan Fitzpatrick. Skream is on the remix. Nuff said!

9. Darius Syrossian - Made For Manchester (Alan Fitzpatrick Remix)

Darius Syrossian - Made For Manchester (Alan Fitzpatrick Remix)

Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave label has been busy laying down foundations for the past twelve months. The run-away success of their debut single “We Do What We Want” is far from the entire story. Much of the last year has been spent “getting their hands dirty”; nurturing new talent (such as Boxia, whose “Point Of No Return” hit set summer stages alight), developing and establishing an events concept (via WATB parties in Manchester, London, Glasgow and Ibiza), and gathering like-minded artists and their music together to support the labels burgeoning release schedule. We Are The Brave was set up as a community. At the core of this enterprise is the spirit of collaboration. A partnership between like-minded creatives. An alliance between artists and fans. A hub for sharing ideas and for working together. Nowhere has this spirit been most apparent than between the growing partnership between Alan Fitzpatrick and Darius Syrossian. Individually, they are both figureheads of brands and headliners in their own right, however, both are open-minded enough to realize that they are stronger together than they are competing for every inch of space within an increasingly overcrowded market. “It’s great to see how Alan operates. It's normal for him to be a resident for a party like Do Not Sleep in Ibiza but at the same time pushing his own We Are The Brave brand and instead of this creating a conflict, he manages to create a win-win for all sides. He is such a down-to-earth and humble guy but he makes unreal music and brings just as much passion when he DJs.” Indeed, it is that same unpretentious sentiment that is at the core of Syrossian’s “Made For Manchester”, as Syrossian explains, “I was a weekly resident in Manchester from 2008 to 2015 and the city means the world to me as a built a strong connection with the crowd there. I don’t get to play the city as often as I’d like now due to my touring schedule, so I wanted to make a track for the city, one that I know has my signature sound but also an emotive feel to show home much love I have for Manchester”. And Syrossian’s thoughts on Fitzpatrick’s remix? “I love the fact that Alan can bring old skool rave sounds back into his music while keeping it underground. My original is quite heavy in parts and the breakdown is very main room, but Alan has put a perfect twist on the original and together the two tracks make for a perfect package”

AlanFitzpatrick - Magnetic Dog

Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave label has been busy laying down foundations for the past twelve months. The run-away commercial success of their debut single “We Do What We Want” was just the start, and have since been setting the standards. The label boss himself makes his welcome return to the label this October, with Magnetic Dog. The original comes laced with slicing hats, crispy yet superbly deep thundering kicks and a cheeky dose of acid thrown in for good measure. Alan wrote the original back in 2016 and waited for that special remix to finalise the package. Always a supporter of Marcus Intalex and his productions, under his Trevino moniker he delivered a masterfully deep rework, taking down the tempo and achieving a euphoric cut of the original.

12. Alan Fitzpatrick - You Got Me

Alan Fitzpatrick - You Got Me

Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave brand has well and truly landed. Their debut sold-out club shows, held over one weekend at the end of March were preceded by three barmy house parties live broadcast from the homes of fans, and a host of well received singles have now come and gone, setting the tone for followers to expect the unexpected from the label with their self styled motto of We Do What We Want. It is then with a nonchalant shrug of the shoulders and poker face glare that We Are The Brave dish out their latest offering, ‘You Got Me’. As Fitzpatrick goes on to explain: “Brave will always be the most natural home for my music, whether it be a familiar style to listeners or not. The whole point is that we are building an excitement around the music being released by not following a particular pattern or pandering to expectation. Hopefully I’ve made the point over the first three releases that We Are The Brave is about going with a flow and not letting preconceptions limit your experience, so its about time we released a good old Fitzpatrick rave banger, init!” Even the most fleeting of listens to the intro of thumping kick drums, precision crafted percussion and thunderous claps will give a strong clue that Fitzpatrick is back at the controls this time out. By the time the cut is in full throttle just after the two-minute mark then you can sense the knowing looks starting to shoot about the room as the familiar feeling grows. Luckily for anyone still unsure, all doubt is cast off at the half way point when the rave pads and breakbeats rip on from nowhere followed in hot pursuit by the "classic" Emmanuel Top "Play It Loud" you got me burning up vocal. Some more recent converts to Alan Fitzpatrick may not be fully aware of the depth of his catalogues, never mind the 20+ years discography that Slam have behind them or indeed the history of remix collaboration between the two that goes back to 2010. However, despite the heavy dosing of hoovers and horns on their You Got Me rework, this Slam Track Series remix is all about the here and now as Glasgow’s techno kings turn in another example of the fine form they find themselves on right now.

14. Gary Beck - Just One More

Gary Beck - Just One More

We Are The Brave is now a label firmly on the electronic music map, with the huge success of its debut single “We Do What We Want” from Alan himself, they have since followed up with a selection of dance floor beasts from Boxia, Darius Syrossian, Skober and a special remix from the late Trevino. The labels 10th release comes straight out of Scotland, as Gary Beck makes his debut on WATB with “Just One More”. Gary is no stranger when it comes to producing true underground techno, but the title track on this release is also accompanied with a standout vocal which some might not expect. Finishing off the package “Round My Place” has a mechanical vibe to it, powering some dark eerie synth horns with a distinctive, clever hook in classic Gary Beck style. Alan has been hammering this one out in his sets since April, safe to say its been a hit!

17. Sasha & AlanFitzpatrick El Jefe (Version 2)

Sasha & AlanFitzpatrick El Jefe (Version 2)

Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave celebrated its 10th release in November and to close out a truly outstanding year, they continue to set the standards higher than ever, welcoming Sasha to the WATB family this December. ‘Sasha and I got to hang out a little through 2016 at various gigs we played together and the idea for the collaboration was born’ Alan says. ‘I have been a Sasha fan for some time, so for this collab to now be actually happening and for it to have come together pretty quickly, given our crazy our touring schedules, just goes to show that dreams can come true if you want them bad enough.’ The release features one original track, with two outstanding versions, and is a true example of the work, exploration and compromise that goes into musical collaboration. ‘It was great to collaborate with Alan’ Sasha says. ‘We kept going back and forth, sharing ideas, trying different melodies, synths and beats. We were struggling to decide on a final version. In the end we just couldn't choose, so decided to release both. We’ve been testing them out on the road and they've been getting some fantastic reactions.’ A thumping kick drum, sits alongside a thick and fluid groove, setting the tone in Version 1. This track has an amalgamation of synthetic patters and vocal strands which blend seamlessly together, filtering off one another in perfect syncopation. Version 2 has a little more drive, and a clearer techno path. As with V.1 its thumping kick drum rolls punches throughout the mix, with synth stabs slicing through its heady bass notes. ‘The process of making music together was actually really smooth and natural’ Alan adds, ‘of course you always have at the back of your mind that this is one of the biggest projects you’ve worked on and that adds a certain pressure. But I really enjoyed that aspect of this release and I feel like the uniqueness of it really added something to my creativity and imagination.’

18. Skober - You Will Find It

Skober - You Will Find It

Skober makes a debut on We Are The Brave with a no-holds-barred, two track party starter. Renowned for his versatile but always-dynamic style, Skober tracks are characterized by big musical moments, strong builds and heavy hitting drops. He is a natural entertainer and this comes across in his music and performances and makes him a real fans favorite. Does that sound like someone else we know? We think so too! So what’s the story behind the release? Who better to ask than Alan himself? “If I love it, then we will release it...” was Fitzpatrick’s typically succinct response when quizzed on his thoughts behind Skober’s two-track single. “I am fortunate enough to get sent a lot of unreleased music but I knew as soon as I first played these tracks from Skober that they were going to be a big part of my sets all summer and that’s about as far as the A&R thought process needs to go as far as I am concerned – if the tunes goes of on the floor then they are right for the label”. Simplicity is the key then it seems; and it is hard to argue with that philosophy. Particularly in the context of a new record label looking to make it’s way within an ultra competitive and increasingly crowded market place. It is certainly never a bad thing to try and break things down to the essentials - what really matters - and when it comes to bring Brave, that’s what it is all about – go with your gut, follow your heart, don’t be scared to trust your feelings.

19. Reset Robot - Held Note

Reset Robot - Held Note

Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave is back with a bang in 2018, after a mega first year in 2017, the label clocked up an impressive 11 releases, from the massive success of their debut single “We Do What We Want”, Gary Beck’s Top10 hit “Just One More” and then closing out the year with an epic collab from Alan and Sasha. With a mega 6 gig tour in Ireland just completed, We Are The Brave continues its reign, expect more gigs, more releases and more madness in 2018. Making his debut on We Are The Brave, is Reset Robot. Born and based in Portsmouth, he and Alan have grown up together “we have worked together for many years on so many different projects. I was really happy when Alan decided to take these tracks for his label, I think they are a perfect fit!” The lead track Held Note has a thundering low end, with a vocal which reverberates amongst the hi hats. “I actually called the track and EP Held Note, as I held down a note on my Korg MS2000 and played around with the pitch and filter modulation a lot. That's the basis of the track” says Dave. Followed up by “Manhattan Project” filled with a selection of heady deep synth rhythms which weave in and out of one another, along a crispy kick, delivering a dark and driving techno track. Welcome to 2018 and the start of the second year of big hitters from We Are The Brave.
