"Our music is a mixture between instrumental and cosmic sounds, different frequencies that create an extravagant atmosphere, melodies that give goosebumps, sounds which put you on a spacecraft and hold your hand during a musical cosmic escape." Parallells

Thomas and Julien de Bie aka Parallells are a duo of DJ/producers from South of France and based in Amsterdam. 

The duo grew up in a jazzy environment and played both at the Jazz Conservatory. Their set can be characterised by the mix of several genres with a spacey and melodic touch that brings its audience on an emotional journey. As co-founders of Klassified Records, the two brothers also run the Klassified Music Festival in South of France. 

Proposing both DJ and LIVE sets, since 2015 Parallells quickly made their way into the music industry, playing in famous festivals over the globe such as Burning Man (USA), Afrika Burn (SA), Garbicz (PL), Into the Woods (NL), Les Plages Electroniques (FR), The Monastery (DE), Moga (MC), as well as respected clubs such as Katerblau, Sisyphos, Wilden Renate (Berlin), De Marktkantine (Amsterdam) or Ahau (Tulum) to name a few. 

Parallells continuously search for new and unusual sounds that they use and translate into music. One of their project called “A Day At” is a video series where tracks are played live using only the environment’s organic sounds and analogue music gears. With release on BAR 25, Submarine Vibes, Crossings, Akbal and their own imprint Klassified, the two brothers are also residents of Amsterdam collective The Gardens of Babylon, Ibiza’s party Woomoon and Berlin’s event Bordel des Arts.
