”Gesaffelstein’s tracks have already received support from James Holden, Chloé, Damian Lazarus, and Laurent Garnier, to name a few, and this record is without a doubt his best yet. Every track on ‘Variations’ is a battle-tested bomb.

His sound is clearly influenced by New Wave and the Gigolo-era electro (2001-2) of fellow Frenchmen The Hacker and David Carretta, but it sounds like a fresh update rather than pastiche, revitalized and refined down to a modern and versatile core. These tracks work in Tiga’s festival sets alongside some of the summer’s biggest anthems, yet are equally at home in a more underground setting, e.g. Von Party’s 5am warm-up before Ivan Smagghe at a London warehouse party.

With remixes upcoming for Turbo and Institubes, a follow-up EP for Turbo in the works… if you want an idea as to how big Gesaffelstein will get this year, just think of him as ‘Brodinkelstein.’”

Just listening to the drop at 2:17 makes me go completely crazy.

Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites

Skrillex recently released his newest EP “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites” on mau5trap records. It contains no less than 6 original tracks and 3 remixes, with the title track being my favourite one. The reason I like Skrillex so much is because of his signature vocal chops, most of the time his tracks start out with relaxing voices only to explode in one hell of a banger. All 9 tracks from the EP are charting in the Top 15 on Beatport making Skrillex the first Dubstep artist to crack the Top 10, if you’re still not convinced just let the music to the talking.

  1. Rock N’ Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain)
  2. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites
  4. All I Ask of You (Feat. Penny)
  5. Scatta (Feat. Foreign Beggars and Bare Noize)
  6. With You, Friends (Long Drive)
  7. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Noisia Remix)
  8. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Zedd Remix)
  9. Kill EVERYBODY (Bare Noize Remix)
