Originally released in 2003. Sascha Funke presents his debut album Brave: The Album Formerly Known As Bravo (same as before in terms of audio content, but with a new variant title spelling that only Germans will understand). It's true that the first signs of Sascha Funke's interpretation of techno lifestyles are keywords like continuity, independence, and translation. This Berliner is living a contradiction for all the spaces left in between: a simultaneous demand for pragmatic rationality and emotional pontification. Funke has a sharp nose for pop, even letting coincidence be the basis of the production process. A new belt is pulling techno tight, managing to create further free spheres and independence in the grey zone of creativity and the collective, which can be heard on this album. The fact that he remains himself and juggles his own inadequacies makes his music not only more pleasurable, but also the person behind it all the more transparent. What he calls "rowing with technology" is overshadowed elsewhere by the immediate and pure, aseptic production. On Brave he engages his path safely: that what is usually determined to be the paradigm in techno, namely, a rapid rise on a bolting industry train, he counters not only as a producer, but even as a DJ who works for patience and one's own confidence in personal skill. What's always decisive for him in unsure situations is the dancefloor itself. Short, momentary reactions and the belief that "techno is always that what you make of it" leaves Bravo without competition in the set selection of his record bag.
