Bergsonist - Middle Ouest
Moroccan born New York based artist, Selwa Abd aka Bergsonist takes listeners on a percussive groovy and mysterious journey to distant lands; providing a series of ultimate dance floor bangers in album Middle Quest released via Optima Music Digital Danceforce.
Outside of producing & djing, Selwa is known for her music platform, Bizaarbazaar and community organization, Pick Up The Flow which curates knowledge gatherings, skill-shares, and helps artists find employment.
Selwa states, “Middle Quest is an ode to my history, present and future self; a sonic autobiography that realistically depicts my identity. I'm not a box but a genre-less ocean. I don't make genres, I just make music I feel making in the moment. It's all about capturing the moment in a given time. If the aesthetic happens to be house or techno then it is. But I'm not a techno artist.. I'm just a free sonic 'voyageur'. I make music as i feel the world; it can be dark, jovial, weird... I mirror the feelings into sonic compositions. However, the only variables that never change in this equation are the message and intention."
