Gesaffelstein is hot as hell at the moment, garnering support from some of the top DJs about. His new EP was released on November 9 on Turbo Records and you can get it here. Listen before you buy here
His are the sort of tunes you could hear out, hammering out of a massive sound system, or sit in and listen to on headphones and lose yourself for a while. There’s the journey in his music, when you forget you’re listening to a dance tune at all. I had the EP on repeat whilst reading the other night and listened to it three times without even noticing. This isn’t to say that the music is dull, insignificant- It just encompasses you. You’re involved without even being aware. I was thinking about what other producers can do that, suck you in totally and the only one I could think of, offhand, was Trentemoller.
Another tune I’ve had on repeat recently is Robortom ‘Paginini Rocks’ featuring the beautiful Au Revoir Simone. Tom Middleton and Rob da Bank have reworked Paginini’s ’24th Caprice’ into a lovely little club anthem. You’ll probably be familiar with ’24th Caprice’ as the theme to the South Bank Show. This is a bit different. Nice job though
