Do you love Combichrist? Do you love Infected Mushroom? If the answer to both those questions was yes, then you're in for a pleasant surprise here! Welcome Gesaffelstein! I discovered this artist via some commercial that was certainly advertising something involving dirtbikes while I watched my Steelers make their way further into the playoffs. All I know is that I was chair-dancing to what I later found out was called Hate or Glory (thank you shazam) and I've been in love with everything I've heard from them ever since.

I Like Gesaffelstein a lot. Its nice with some new blood into the electro/techno world. Todays electro is boring and todays techno nearly doesnt exist.

Give us more Mike Levy! I will obey!
