Biography

“Expect big things.” NME | “Atmospheric, driving techno-noir from France.” The Times | “Prince of darkness is fast becoming the king” Mixmag | Best known for his collaborations with Kanye West on two standout tracks from the groundbreaking ‘Yeezus’ album (‘Send It Up’ and ‘Black Skinhead’) as well as high profile remixes for Lana Del Rey and Depeche Mode, Paris-based DJ/producer Gesaffelstein’s solo work reconnects hard techno to its pounding industrial roots.

“Expect big things.” NME | “Atmospheric, driving techno-noir from France.” The Times | “Prince of darkness is fast becoming the king” Mixmag | Best known for his collaborations with Kanye West on two standout tracks from the groundbreaking ‘Yeezus’ album (‘Send It Up’ and ‘Black Skinhead’) as well as high profile remixes for Lana Del Rey and Depeche Mode, Paris-based DJ/producer Gesaffelstein’s solo work reconnects hard techno to its pounding industrial roots. After earning all manner of acclaim for early EP releases and for his recent Parlophone debut track ‘Pursuit’ and 'Hate or Glory’ ahead of his debut album ‘Aleph’ which follows on October 28th.

A visceral encapsulation of Gesaffelstein’s noir-electronica, ‘Hate or Glory’ blurs apocalyptic beats into a form of dance music which brims with intelligence, aggression and emotion.

Gesaffelstein’s musical vision is interpreted within the accompanying video (link here) which depicts a darkly mysterious snapshot of Los Angeles’ criminal underbelly. Directorial duo Fleur and Manu again complement the beautiful brutality of the music with their surreal visuals after their work on Gesaffelstein’s first single ‘Pursuit’. Their previous credits include similarly captivating clips for the likes of Tricky, Sebastien Tellier and M83.

‘Hate or Glory’ is the perfect taster for the sinister pleasures of ‘Aleph’, an album which refreshes a stale techno scene . Melancholy and darkness, the ecstatic charge of a 4/4 beat and raw industrial aggression. Things that have been away from dance music for too long. They’re all there in ‘Aleph’. The album is available for pre-order at: http://smarturl.it/Aleph.

“I don’t know why I’m drawn to dark sounds,” Levy admits. “It’s like when you make a movie about love. That’s not your life, it’s the art you have made. It’s a fiction. The music is exactly the same. Although there is nothing dark in my life, I have a facility to understand dark emotion.”
