If You Love Me
Posted on / October 16, 2015 @ 1:12 am

I started making songs with my dude Dugans from Crown Heights in 09’….we would kick some of them to singers, but it never felt right…a little while after I was at a show at South Paw in Brooklyn and heard this dude singing on stage as if it was a DJ dropping a sample, dude’s name is Akie Bermiss and I invited him to our studio to lay down a track, and immediately knew this is the singer for the Dreams in Static​beats. Akie could say “baby” on a track, a million times, and sometimes he does and it still wouldn’t be enough…. Some folks have got the magic…Akie is one of those folks.

About Dreams in Static: Dreams in Static conjures up the aesthetics of Pulp Fiction & Curtis Mayfield. The upcoming album produced by Los Angeles based hip hop producer Diwon and multifaceted guitarist/composer, Dugans will feature Akie Bermiss throughout. Akie Bermiss is a soulful singer and composer from Brooklyn, reared by former-activists in a musical household full of jazz and politics. Bringing his own signature sound — with hints of Smokey Robinson and James Brown– his timeless dream-like voice breathes life and narratives into the Dreams in Static grooves. The songs are like soundtracks to films in a genre somewhere beyond pop and yet resolutely of it, too. The walls of sound that flow throughout the “Dreams of Static” sessions are the balance of the three musicians’ varied musical and personal backgrounds. Themes range from love and heartbreak to lust and existentialism. Dreams In Static resurrects the guitar and soul-singing that pops in a world where popular music has been left in a state of static and midi sounds.

what da press say about us:

“booming hip-hop/soul … robust beats, sweeping hooks and vocals with a tinge of raw anguish” – Wall Street Journal

“John Mayer meets The Rolling Stones with more soul; yes it’s possible.” - AltSounds

The Dreams
Posted on / October 16, 2015 @ 1:11 am

2015-10-01 11.55.27-1In CT as Dugans is setting up the Dreams in Static session and Akie Bermiss is writing to this beat I made on the plane with Dugans guitars. I have been making beats with Dugans from the beginning…from the first time I heard him play guitar’ I knew I wanted to make records with him and even though we lived 100 ft from each other in Brooklyn most of the tracks came from wetransfer’ing files back and forth at 2am.

Can’t wait till you all hear what we’re working on!

Torment with Natan
Posted on / June 15, 2015 @ 6:10 pm

Just as I was putting the finishing touches on our Bancs SXSW compilation, I was in the studio and heard my friend Natan Winkler play a melody idea on the piano, I asked him to lay it down so I could build a track around it in time for the compilation for Austin. I laid down some synths and drums and textures to create a dream like feel and then we brought in our friend Tal to record some guitar ideas which I chopped up and layered to add a more full and surreal sound.

It is rare for a rock band to commercially release an instrumental version of their LP, something generally reserved for rappers and well, just rappers really. But Bonhom is a rare breed, far from the traditional rock band. Bonhom is made up of the alt indie falsetto singer and songwriter James Coleman, known to fans for his signature seductive sonics, and hip hop producer Diwon, known for his genre twisting and collaborative singles and remixes.  

The two artists compose some of the freshest genre-less gems which might be heard in scenes of shows on Lifetime, MTV, and ABC. Their latest single, NYE, was remixed by over 35 countries in varying styles, and “The Instrumentals of Sex War” highlights what makes the music defy genres and labels as they blend elements of folk, pop, hip hop, edm, and rock into the unmistakable sound of Bonhom.

Set for a July 21st release, this album should tide fans over until their sophomore album is scheduled to be released later this year.
