Whether taking centre stage as a DJ, party co-creator or producer, Gene Tellem communicates her own style of tweaked soul music through house and techno scripts, dedicating her productions to grooves for both nodding heads and wiggling bodies. Her productions are largely self-taught and inspired by the reverie and energy of electronic dance events, infused with the rhythms, melodies, movements and collective emotions of the live underground club experience. She debuted with Who Says No, on Project Pablo and Sebastian Cowan's Sounds of Beaubien Ouest (SOBO) label. Inspired by the collaborative nature of the electronic artists around her, despite the rapid disappearance of the urban spaces they gathered and made music in, Gene Tellem crafted freeform structures and subtle transformations in her music, reflective of a state of ambiguity and a push into what comes next. Her follow-up EP, « Untitled » on Wolf Music, merges rolling drum machines with live percussion, sweeping and squelching synths and melodic piano, bending between atmospheric soundscapes and a determined bass beat. A now seasoned conductor of vibes, Gene Tellem created her own imprint in 2019, Bienvenue Recordings, on which she released « The Inner Dance EP » as a debut release for the new label. 2021 starts with a freshly new outing on Wolf Music, « Mind Reader ». Exuding all the hallmarks of a classic sonic digger, Gene Tellem always references the lush-leaning, groove-laden houses-of-the-past in her sound, with another ear keenly tuned to the progressions and peculiarities of genre-blending that defines our present.
