The word ‘prodigy’ gets thrown around a little too often, but for Berlin based Bryan Muller AKA SCNTST, the term is somewhat unavoidable. Germany’s self-proclaimed techno child wonder and arguable Boysnoize Records’ finest recent signing is set to release his highly anticipated debut Self Therapy on December 10th.
Born in 1993 and raised in Munich on a diet of rock and hip-hop, SCNTST developed a love for intricate rhythms and sequences at an early age. With a far-reaching skill set disproportionate to his age, it was only a matter of time before he drew the attention of Boysnoize Records at the age of just 17, dropping his first EP on Alex Ridha’s electronica powerhouse in 2011.
Young prodigy? Audible savant of his time? From hypnotically progressive opener “Velour”, the hard-hitting, bombastic club sounds of “Mintra”, right through to the last dreamy keys of closing title track – Self Therapy is an unstoppable debut album by anyone’s standards and regardless of any tag. With the release of his first full-length looming, it seems the boy from Munich has come of age.
