One of the most vital things we can do as curators is to give a voice to those who may have gone unheard. For this reason we believe in keeping things on the up and coming, and this debut EP is no exception. Simmering to the top of the talent pool that is the Berlin underground comes Gabriella Vergilov, a Bulgarian DJ and producer with a propensity for dense, psychedelic Detroit-to-Chicago style house. Her style is fluid and translucent, with layers of syrup-laced vocals and undulating bass. Take for instance the floor-enchanting Off Beat Fight, which gathers an assortment of after party flavors and hurdles them down the strangest, most seductive hallways of the mind. Its tracks like this as well the meditative experimentalism of Filedium, and the Fear and Loathing-esque purity of Vegas On Acid that perked our ears to the distinct qualities of Gabriellas sound. Considering she has managed to reach these heights on her first EP, we can only imagine what she has in store for us in the future.
