Outputmessage is DC resident Bernard Farley, a singer, producer, and DJ whose style ranges from upbeat electro pop to techno and house. He's a member of Volta Bureau (whose song, "Alley Cat", topped the Beatport indie-dance chart), but has also been churning out tunes on his own since 2003, releasing stand-out tracks and remixes on labels such as Ghostly, Melodic, and his own Output Noise Records. In 2006, he released his first album Nebulae, a set of instrumental songs displaying his knack for catchy melodies and lush synth work. After taking a few years off to hone his "creamy baritone" singing style, Farley debuted his vocals on the uplifting electro house album, Autonomous, in 2010. He returned in 2011 with the Game Over EP, whose funky title track was named one of the best songs to come out of DC in 2011 by the Washington Post.
