We are very happy to welcome our first European artist to the label. German/French musician and DJ Gilles Bernies is a young rising talent who’s passion and dedication to his craft is exemplary. A classically trained pianist and bass guitarist Gilles has focused exclusively on electronic music production and performance for the past 2 years.
His music is melodic and features his unique atmospheric vocals. Naturally ‘Abstract’ is in every sense of the meaning only part of the composition. however we can begin to understand and determine something of the artists musical form and intent. Despite being orienteered towards grand, open air surroundings it is the contrast in the instrumentation and dynamics – from the dominating staccato leads, driving bass and vocal cries to the subtler counter melodies and ambience, that reflect a confident artistic vision. As the drums subside into a breakdown, the moment reveals an honest nature, one that holds out both hands in welcome.
Of noteworthy mention, the artwork used for Abstract is a painting by German designer Ilka Rehberger. We look forward to seeing more of her work accompany future Bernies releases!
