Bonjour Berlin is a franco-german-argentine electronic music project.
Their music style is a mix between house and techno relying on synths and melodies as a central part of their music.
At the end of 2014 they met in Colorado United States through Francisco, friend and former manager of the duo. Both snow fans, one skier and the other snowborder. Each one had several years in music and with their own projects of transcendence in the national under. From that first encounter in a Mexican cantina under a bus station somewhere in Colorado, the musical chemistry came up immediately and it was a matter of days becoming great friends. After a few months they traveled to the European music scene .. Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Ibiza, Amsterdam among the most outstanding. Some cities where they would debut years later.
While in Paris they find out that Club Rex was going to have a great exponent of the French House and one of its main influences: Cassius.
(Thus began the 48 hours non stop that they never imagined). It was impossible to enter, the place was sold out, they managed to enter thanks to an arrangement with a security that went directly to the Vip sector, it was the only way to sneak in, where they were lucky enough to meet the Cassius duo in person. The night was long and continued in an after in the Quartier Latin.
That same day without sleeping, they left for Berlin by train. Upon arriving in Berlin, a friend who worked at the door of the mythical club Der Visionaere invites them to visit the place. If you have ever been or heard about this sanctuary and its history, you will understand better what it is about. Upon entering late afternoon almost dawn, they realize that the night was still on point and in command of the decks was their main resident, the beloved Ricardo Villalobos. Realizing in the sequence that they were newcomers to the techno capital there were no words that best described that moment "Bonjour Berlin".
Apparently this was going to be his name but they still did not know, months later, Ale found in a thrift shop a black T-shirt with the brief B.B. in the chest remembering that adventure for europe. That same week he wore it at a famous after-ski in North America, where they showed up to play, everyone had their set schedule but that did not mattered to them and that's how their first B2B like Bonjour Berlin happened.
This project that officially began in late 2015 to this day has hundreds of presentations from under parties to important clubs and festivals in Argentina, the United States and Europe.
Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Barcelona, Ibiza, South of France, Aspen / Vail Colorado.
