Outputmessage is DC-based producer Bernard Farley. Bernard is also one third of Volta Bureau, who have reached audiences the world with their blend of house and indie dance styles. Today, Bernard has released his third album,the Asteroids EP which will take each listener to a viewpoint far above the city. The three-track album provides a blend of electro and deep house that is surprisingly light on vocals, something thatâ€™s usually common in his music and often influence his live performances.
Intro track â€œAsteroidsâ€ is a great lead in to the album as it resembles defining yourself through new spaces. Aligned with deep bass and glimpses of synths on top, the track builds a calm suspense that chills your body with a crisp entrance to an atmosphere newly born. â€œCeresâ€ puts you in a zone where the music moves to the background while the track quietly teases you with eerie suspense of whatâ€™s coming next. The flow is all you want and can accept. â€œVestaâ€ shares similarities with each of the two previous tracks and introduces a deeper bass rhythm and more synth variety. The first two tracks serve as the perfect lead up to this point. While including calming chimes and consistently stretched bass, it helps bring your mind back up to speed before the record releases you.
Asteroids will definitely take you out of the city for a moment, like youâ€™ve been sucked into a delusional world where time and space become increasingly unfamiliar and you’re left ultimately in their grasps.
Stream the tracks below and prepare for full length release on Output Noise Records on March 25.
