This year, Hassle celebrates its 15th anniversary, it does so in good health and with a project that is simply titled 15 X 15 - a series of special editions of 15 key releases that have shaped the label’s existence.
Included in this series if the 2017 debut album from Brutus, titled Burst. Label directors Wez and Nigel shared their thoughts on this title, "Nice to find a three-piece with not just one point of difference, but many. Fronted (though not in the traditional sense) by Stephanie Mannaerts, she not only provides the band’s vocals but, as the drummer, is also responsible for their musical backbone. Stijn Vanhoegaerden’s unique guitar style - that defies classification - leads the way. There are riffs for sure, but not in the traditional sense. It’s more about the overall sound he conjures up. Was it these points of difference that attracted us to the band? It was not. It’s what they produce when they come together. A truly atmospheric wall of sound."
