Let’s Embark on a Bro Safari
No one can predict the future, but we are pretty sure you all know what’s coming. (K)nick Weiller, A.K.A Bro Safari, is taking Orlando on a much needed adventure through the dance music world.
What Is A “Bro Safari”?
Well, we’re glad you asked. If you knew nothing about this guy, you might think that he takes people on wild safari adventures, and while you are right, these adventures don’t necessarily take place in a jungle.
Here are two of the basics:
Bro: brō (noun): Short for brother or a male friend (often used as a form of address).
Sa-fa-ri: səˈfärē (noun): An expedition to observe or hunt animals in their natural habitat, especially in East Africa.
A Deeper Look
Bro Safari is a reflection of Nick Weiller’s dubstep self. Weiller is one third of Evol Intent and one whole of Bro Safari, so you could say he’s got some major talent. His music has been making waves in the electronic and dance music scene for quite sometime now. With his productions having been critically acclaimed by the best in the businesses, his varying musical style such as dubstep, drum & bass and moombahton and ever growing success, we think all of Orlando is in for an extreme treat.
How Did He Get The Name?
We have been making our daily reads about Bro Safari and came to find a great interview with him via EDM Sauce. You might, or might not, be surprised to know the story behind the name “Bro Safari”.
So how’d you come up with your name?
I don’t remember exactly, but me and my MC were actually laughing about it earlier, I think it had something to do with Bro SaF R eye. I don’t know. I have no fucking idea to be honest with you. I actually started the project like six or seven years ago and then just put it to bed for a couple of years so I mean I started it and then forgot about it, then came back to it.
A Genre-Less Artist
Born in Italy, raised in Atlanta, and now a pretty permanent resident of Austin, Texas, Nick has a diverse background just as his musical tastes. As you may know, we are fond of bringing Orlando diverse artists and exposing this scene to the great talent that the world has to offer. With the help of numerous interviews that we read up on, we learned that Nick (Bro Safari), considers himself pretty much genre-less. Check out what he said on the topic in that same EDM Sauce interview we mentioned earlier.
“At this point I don’t think it’s healthy to think about that because the “EDM bubble” is as big as its gonna get. Or maybe not. I could be wrong. I hope I’m wrong. But I feel like it’s gone to this point where genres have bled into each other so much that it’s time to just stop talking about it and every artist needs to just make what they’re gonna make and that’s them. We need to ease back in to just having more individuality within the dance music scene.”
“I don’t think about it anymore. If I make a tune with 808 drums, if you wanna call it trap, that’s fine, whatever. Doesn’t matter.”
