The first time we were able to experience Perila was when the whole Berlin Community Radio posse came into town for the amazing BCR Hamburg at Uebel & Gefährlich in August last year. Luckily, she provided us with this month’s TISSUE Magazine Mixtape called Deep Connection.
Perila aka Alexandra Zakharenko, known for her addictive sessions on BCR, calls the medium radio a place to meet people and share your thoughts and be who you are. She says that one of her inspirations for making music is her desire to share her vibe with the world, and that her mixes reflect herself. Each track has a meaning, and like a trip, the idea with the mix is to travel from the beginning to the end through ups and downs and to feel what you feel.
Perila’s compilation reflects her love for Deep house. Below the mellow surface her ambient mix is both powerful and touching. Perila creates bubbles of pure bliss away from reality. It easily brings nature to your mind spiced with tiny bits of racking tribal sounds. Good to know that she is planning to produce music again soon.
For now, not much more to say than, thanks to Perila for sharing your cool vibe with us. Now start to feel what you feel!
