Video: Arjan Chats with BT

Ever since he released his ground-breaking LP "Emotional Technology," I have been a huge fan of BT (aka Brian Transeau). Throughout his career, the acclaimed composer/producer/DJ has been pushing the envelope by incorporating innovative new production techniques to give his music a compelling new edge with every new release.

BT has been a trail blazer who was at the forefront of the dance-pop revolution in the U.S. infusing his productions with distinct pop sensibilities while also staying true to his dance and electronica roots. That's what makes him stand apart from the crowd - he understands melody, composition, production and what sounds good on the dance floor. A good example of that is his production of 'N Sync's 2001 smash "Pop" that served up an exciting, genre-crossing sound that still sounds current today. (It also includes that "stuttering" audio effect that BT invented and been used many, many times since.)

I recently chatted with Brian about his new double LP "These Hopeful Machines" which is the long-awaited follow-up to his critically-acclaimed "This Binary Universe." We talked at length about the process of making this new record, his contribution to pop music, his new iPhone app, and his past and future collaboration with some major artists Really fun and interesting chat with a super cool guy.

Love BT thanks to an ex-bf and thanks for the interview (though I originally read the headline as "Arjan Chats with BP" and wondered why everybody seemed to be getting into the oil spill issue.
