Gabriella Vergilov is a Bulgarian-born, Brussels-based producer, DJ and vocalist with an idiosyncratic take on electronic music. Her sound behind the decks blends synth-infused basslines, cinematic atmospheres and sensual vocals, and has been wowing audiences at clubs like Shelter Amsterdam, Arena Berlin and her residency at Antwerp’s Ampere.
Her debut release Her Beginning on THEMA Recordings came out, testifying to Gabriella’s talents and skills in the studio. Following the success of the release, one of the tracks from the EP, Filedium was featured in Belgium’s Oscar-entry film Racer and The Jailbird (Le Fidèle), as well as in the movie’s international trailer and soundtrack. Her follow-up record, One Step Ahead, was released on Dustin Zahn’s Enemy Records in 2018.
Vergilov’s latest release, Termosfera, was released in 2018 via THEMA, grabbing the attention of her all-time favourite artist and mentor DVS1, who opened his Fabric mix with Vergilov’s track Boring Shit months before its official release. Berghain’s own Ben Klock and BBC Radio 1’s B.Traits also showed support for Vergilov, putting her tracks on heavy rotation throughout 2018.
Gabriella’s unique production style is further underpinned by her seductive yet eery vocals, a deeply personal element that’s present in all of her work and in her collaborations with other artists. This is exemplified by her recent collaboration with Marco Shuttle, in the title track from The Moon Chant EP, which was released on The Bunker New York in November 2018. The track received support by many renown artists, including Ben Klock, who featured it in his DGTL x Resident Advisor Boiler Room set earlier this year.
Last month she stepped on American ground for her debut US tour, covering the Midwest area and a Red Bull Radio appearance at their main office in Manhattan where she discussed her journey of becoming the artist she is now, her approach to her artistry as well as her upcoming records. You can hear the whole radio show here including a couple of her own productions and her upcoming remix of Mixed Emotions by DJ HYPERACTIVE set to release later this year on Northern Parallels.
