From his early output where he was clearly inspired heavily by The Hacker, to his breakthrough material such as Variations, his remix of Shockwave (and of course the outstanding Aleph LP), Gesaffelstein is one hell of a talented artist.

He can do pieces of sublime beauty, and likewise he can create absolute monsters that rip your head off.

I'm surprised that he's been quiet since 2015.

We need talent like his in the currently sterile dance scene.

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!
