Top 5 Videos of 2019 #2: Lisa Frank & Rez Ekbatan – Whisper (Outputmessage Remix)

This video from electronic music producer Bernard Farley’s moniker Outputmessage is joyous and menacing and clubby and revelatory. What started as a remix for Lisa Frank and Rez Ektaban‘s debut single Whisper on their ROAMANCE label turned into this piece of edgy performance art at Grace Reformed Church. Here’s Farley’s own words about the importance of this video: “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!)”.

The DIY warehouse party ROAM celebrates their 6th anniversary on New Year’s Eve with Outputmessage and Blinkhorn hold down the ambient room while DJ Lisa Frank, TonalTheory and others man the main decks. Grab yer tix now, prices go up at the door.
