Biography

Andrew Pekler’s Bergheim 34 project has long been the most ecclectic, varied and pop-friendly act on the mighty Klang Imprint. Following the release of their debut “Sechstrack EP” for the label in 1999 they have continued to produce tracks that span pretty much every genre and sub genre of the spectrum from electro to funk to house to pure, unadulterated pop. This is their debut album proper, compiling some classic bergheim moments (previously only available on vinyl) and adding some new gems, veering from the Deep House / Vocal Pop hit of “Random Access Memory”, through to the garage steppin’ “Nasty Girl”, shimmering Micro House on “Frogs On Grills”, the Wagon Christ-esque electronic soundscaping of “Rababa” to the classic vocoded funk hit that is “Take My Soul”. Utterly charming and brilliantly produced, this is one of those all-too-rare ecclectic albums that manages to avoid coming across as pretentious or wannabe “crayzeeee”, instead focusing on how pop sensibilities can be applied most deliciously to any number of styles with a smile and a big glass of fizzy soda. Brilliant.Bergheim 34, the band that isn’t one, was formed in 1998 and has since delighted perplexed music enthusiasts with three remarkable EP releases. At last they have crawled out of their virtual sanctuary again to present their new album. It’s Not For You As It Is For Us is the result of two years’ collective silence with each of the four members going their own ways to concentrate on their own projects.
