Bon-Psy

23 year old Gianluca Cardinale is Bon-Psy, a UK-based producer creating future electronic beats that bridge the gap between melodic and experimental music.

"Taking place in a parked car over the course of one afternoon, former drug dealer Jimmy confronts his drug dealing childhood best friend Che about the dangerous road she is leading her younger brother Gino down." Bon-Psy was asked to write the score for this short film, "I'd never done anything like this before but I felt like I could have an interesting take on it with my Electronic background/influences. Overall I was super happy with how it turned out, and I think it's good to step out of your comfort zone when the right opportunities come up. Even if it doesn't go to plan, in a worst case scenario you'll still learn a lot.​"
