Bertisch began working on Prelude during the COVID-19 lockdowns, bringing together music in various forms of completion.

“I spent the last four years working towards gaining confidence around my ideas and my creative perspective,” she explains. “This feels like a culmination of that process.”

Prelude follows the label’s release of Conclave’s remix album.
