As with every sound, thunder carries a complex emotion. It is fierce and heavy, scary and mysterious at the same time. Its corresponding image, splitting dark skies with a blinding flash of the lighting, completes a picture which is equally frightening and fascinating.
For Bartek and Camille, the concept of ThunderFuzz is deeply rooted in these emotions. Even though they come from completely different environments, they share similar fascination with dark electronic sounds. She, French, originates from classical musical upbringing, having started piano lessons at the age of 7. He, Polish/Luxembourgish, returned to music after running away from a corporate life and a career of a business analyst. The place where they met for the first time, Luxembourg City, couldn’t have been more random and unexpected. Yet it began a passionate conversation about music, which resulted in a collaboration and then a full album.
The discovery process which led to “Anti Body”, their debut album set for release in November 2022, combined two worlds whose similarities might only be surprising at the first glance. Camille graduated with a master in musicology and a degree in sound design and music composition for the image. Bartek studied music production and sound engineering at the Abbey Road Institute in Amsterdam. However, this distance, not only in the geographical sense of this word, couldn’t have been more of an illusion. The real passion for music knows no barriers or limitations, it is a language in its own right, a way to convey pure emotions.
The seven songs included on “Anti Body” are different facets of the same fascination. For Bartek, it was his love for trip hop which took him on a musical journey of sonic exploration. Camille arrived at the same place following a different path, from classical to psytrance, from traditional world music to IDM and downtempo. In her own words, “if the emotion rises, the music is good, that’s all” – a phrase which could easily be a motto and a mission for ThunderFuzz as a whole.
So, if you would like to know what the “fuzz” is about, you will have to listen to the entire release, out in November 2022. Let it be your soundtrack to the gloomy evenings of rainy autumns and wintery nights.

Bartek comes from the north-west of Poland.
Born in the city of Szczecin, he develops his passion for music as a child, however leaves this passion largely untouched until his teenage years. At the age of sixteen he listens to the first album by Portishead which ultimately changes his life, and his outlook on music. He starts discovering electronic sounds and alternative artists of the 1990s, from Björk and Massive Attack to Tori Amos and PJ Harvey.
Mind-blown by the abundance of musical approaches, he co-creates his first project with a childhood friend. He starts making beats and developing them into compositions largely by instinct while diving into the world of trip hop, industrial and drum’n’bass. However, a professional career in financial services interrupts this experience for a number of years.
Fast-forward to much later, now living in Luxembourg, Bartek realizes that a work life without music doesn’t make much sense and he decides to follow his dream one more time. He quits work at a financial institution and moves to Amsterdam where he studies music production and sound engineering at the Abbey Road Institute. He starts collaborating with singers to produce new songs, first songs in many years, and he finds his path again.
Starting from 2018, Bartek begins collaborating with a Canadian-British group, Ashes and Dreams, and an independent American artist, TabInStereo. He is also introduced to the Polish music scene with his reworks of two Ania Sama’s songs from her debut album, and a collaboration with Polaczek.
In 2020 he meets Camille and their story as ThunderFuzz starts taking its shape…
