Bernhoft - Visceral

Oh my goodness, let me tell you about my first Bernhoft encounter. Way back in 2012 I was at my first Great Escape, it had rained Wednesday through Friday, but Saturday it was sunny and lovely and truly great. I was volunteering that year, and on Saturday my shift didn't start until late but I thought I'd head down for the day because... well, because it was free so why not? I was just on my way past Jubilee Square and there he was, Bernhoft, doing some insane looping and beatboxing and all sorts and I was like, well damn, this guy's good. But apart from 'C'mon Talk' I haven't really paid much attention to anything he's been up to. He even released an EP last year that I didn't even take note of, but that's all about to change.

Bernhoft has released a new single called 'Visceral'. I can't believe that this is an artist who has been putting out music of this standard for year and still isn't globally huge. That's just the way it is, I guess. I'm not sure of a good way to even describe the music that Bernhoft makes, it's pop but heavily electronic and hugely R&B influenced. There's far less obvious looping and vocal sampling going on throughout this track but there is a subtle nod during the chorus which works so well. The general message of the song is cool too; dealing with real issues but not in a condescending or preachy way.

Oh my goodness, his new EP, featuring 'Visceral' obviously, The Morning Comes is released on the 20th January. That's so soon. Cop it.

  1. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
