Bézier is San Francisco based, Taiwanese-American musician Robert Yang, who is also an original member of the Honey Soundsystem crew. A multi-instrumentalist, Robert grew up in Southern California then planted his roots in San Francisco in 2005. Over the years in SF he has built an impressive analog synth-based studio, which also serves as the creative hub for his riveting live performances. In the last few years his DJ sets and live music performance has taken him across various parts of the US, Europe and Asia.
His work brings together a wide range of influences, from new wave to industrial to synth punk, to sounds dating back to 90s Warp records—a major influence on him. Robert began DJ’ing under the name Robot Hustle in 2003 and joined Honey Soundsystem in 2007. The crew launched a successful weekly event series in 2008, in addition to frequent gigs around the world. Following a limited cassette release in 2012, Bézier’s debut vinyl release was the 2013 EP Ensconced, issued by Dark Entries, the label run by Josh Cheon. This was followed in 2015 by Telomeres (also on Dark Entries) and Mina (issued by the collective’s HNYTRX label), both of which were mixed by Mark Pistel (Consolidated, Meat Beat Manifesto). The year 2016 brought another HNYTRX release (Cosmologist) as well as a split EP with Fort Romeau on his Cin Cin label, and Dark Entries released Primes in 2017. His debut album Parler Musique arrived in March 2018.
