Lisa Frank & Rez Ekbatan – Whisper (Outputmessage Remix)

Electronic dance music performer Bernard Farley, aka Outputmessage, has carefully crafted and curated visuals for his music that range from artsy to clubby. His newest is a radical departure showing Farley singing and performing to his recent remix of Lisa Frank & Rez Ekbatan‘s DJ single Whisper. He writes, “The song itself is already crazy, but to perform to it in a church meant a lot to me. The last time I performed in a church, I was closeted and afraid to be my true self. Now 22 years later, I’m in a completely different place as an artist where the main goal is to be the MOST myself. And so I couldn’t help but have some fun and be crazy and free on my own terms. My good friend and collaborator, Nigel Lyons, filmed the whole thing in one take! This one is not to be missed (look out for the reveal toward the end!)” We love it and can’t wait for more.
