Grand Prix is the pondering solo project that marks the beginning of a new chapter for Bastian Emil. Previously he has been part of grunge inspired Ocean View and synth-seductive Secret Life. Grand Prix maintains a firm grip on the synthesizers and his audience and creates an intense pop-universe that is anything but stereotypical. The title of the 2016 debut EP ‘Semper Primus Tandem Mortem’ - which can be roughly translated Always First, Death Last - sets the curious tone for what is a dark and reflective pop album. Bastian Emil’s wide ranging and quickly changing vocals tell the story of the hero, his doubts and his triumphs, while the ever-present and insisting drums add to the grandiose feel. Grand Prix sets himself apart from the often carefree genre and presents his thoughts almost as hymns in a majestic atmosphere. Grand Prix has recently been the supporting act for First Hate, and guests at Trailerpark Festival will have the opportunity to experience his pop with a dark twist.
