BrassBastardz first début was in the beginning of 21st century when they opened for Jimmy Tenor and played in different Jazz festivals all around. After having couple of great concerts the band stopped performing. Even without live performances the band kept moving. Through these years 4 Vinyl’s where released. What’s more a designer eye-wear line from the very same vinyl with BrassBastardz music, was released. Every frame went together with their LP. It was called Vinylize and it’s still alive and flourishing.
In 2005 a video was released for their song “Jiemah” and the same year it got a nomination for “Most Stylish Video of the Year”. The same year another song called “Sunrise” was used in a Russian movie called “Nevaliashka”.
After a long brake Brassbastardz revived and in the end of 2009 the band released their first full album called “Waiting”. They presented it in various clubs and festivals. BrassBastardz continued the synthesis by combining their forces with different musicians: opening act for: Gotan Project, De Phazz, Candy Dulfer.
After transforming it’s size and the look BrassBastardz goes on. The band shrunk from 7 people on the stage to only 4: Daiva Starinskaite aka Divah Dee – vocals, Alvydas Maciulskas – beatmachines/keys, Aurimas rimeikis – vocals/keys, Marijus Aleksa – drums.
Transformations led to a release of another album - 2011.01.01 is the release date of “Synthezatorium” – a pure and natural album of 7 songs and 7 interludes. The album was recorded in 7 days and 7 nights in deep forests of Lithuania. It came to life with the help of "BrassBastardz Traveling Studio" near a beautiful lake.
Synthezatorium toured not only the bigest Lithuanian clubs, but UK and other European cities as well. BrassBastardz latest trophy: wining The Peoples Music Awards, an international unsigned bands music competition, in Dance/Electronica category with their song Bubble in a Trouble.
Dylan Statow TPMA organizer:
"Brass Bastardz are 1 of the breakthrough bands from this year's awards. Winners of the best dance/electronica act, their performance and energy at this years awards ceremony absolutely amazing and the highlight of the awards for me.
Their music fuses pumping electronic bass and beats with fat synthesizers and singer Daiva's powerful vocals, creating a unique and adventurous yet mature sound that is sure to delight anyone with an ear for good dance music"
