Gesaffelstein Attempts To Redefine French House and Techno in Game Changing Full Length Album “Alpeh LP” : Album Review and Full StreamPosted in Album Review, Bangin, Mixtapes / Albums by Bryan | Tags: Aleph, French Electro, Gesaffelstein, Pursuit, Techno, Video
French techno god Gesaffelstein has released his debut album Aleph worldwide. Having co-produced ‘Black Skinhead’ & ‘Send It Up’ on Kanye West’s new album Yeezus along with a handful of other impressive original releases under his belt including the captivating ‘Pursuit’, Gesaffelstein has drawn fans new and old to digest the full force of his musical talents. ‘ALEPH’ ALBUM STREAM LOCATED AT BOTTOM OF POST
Gesaffelstein (pronounced GRR-saff-ell-STINE) is a conjunction between the historical physicist Albert Einstein and the German word ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’, which stands for the perfectionism of art between image, sound and video. It is his unique scrutiny to the three aforementioned characteristics that has guided Gesaffelstein to the heights he has reached today. The current attention surrounding Gesaffelstein is not his own doing though seeing he is a rather a quiet and remote individual, but more of his peers and the media who have spoken lavishly over his exceptional musical creations for years now. Consistently pushing the boundaries of electro/techno genres by offering a sinisterly dark, yet energetic twist to the norm is why Gesaffelstein is held in the same regard as Justice, Diplo, Brodinski, and Daft Punk.
Aleph weighs in at a modest 14-tracks and will take listeners less than one hour to complete in its entirety. Gesaffelstein’s introduction track ‘Out Of Line’ sets the tone of the album perfectly as a melodic drum pattern is met with sharp burst of synths and an eerie females verbal tirade. From that point on, the ebb and flow of ‘Aleph’ is quite stunning and will lock listeners in a trance like state. For every cluster of tracks showcasing Gesaffelstein’s gritty & raw french electro/house production, they are followed by one or two minimalistic tracks where the composition is so simple yet engages listeners to take an unknown journey into the depths of the Frenchman’s mind.
One particular track on Gesaffelstein’s Aleph has captivated the electronic music communities attention in the same manner as Skrillex’s ‘Scary Monster and Nice Spirits’ or Flux Pavilion’s ‘Bass Cannon’. The broodingly energetic ‘Pursuit’ is a hodgepodge of bone-chilling synths, waning sirens, and hard hitting drops. Throw in a few eerie chants that assist building the beat up and you have a song that when played makes any activity seem much cooler than you previously remembered. The official music video for ‘Pursuit’ serves as work of modern-day art as the storyline plays out images, inspirations, colors and movies that invoke Gesaffelstein’s imagination.
Gesaffelstein – ‘Pursuit’ (From Aleph Album)
Without using samples or potential copyrighted material unlike many of his colleagues , Aleph stands tall in a league of its own by featuring 100% original music. If Aleph was to win an award for album of the year within its genre, it’s because it serves as a testament for the evolution of production within electronic music. As for Gesaffelstein’s future; it is as open as he’d like it to be. All we can do is wait with anticipation for what he has in store next. Enjoy

Next up we have “Sparrows Made Of Lead”, which is an 8 minute cinematic journey that reminding me of some more old school Deadmau5 with his song “Sometimes Things Get Complicated”. Then we get “Errors In My Head” which is another great track which Deadmau5 has temporarily included the vocals from his remix to Kaskad “I Remember”. Overall it seems like Deadmau5 is moving to some of his older roots, and I couldn’t be any more supportive. These are easily some of my favorite tracks I have heard him make in quite some time.

While contemplating how best to release his newest studio material, Las Vegas based electronic producer Revolvr ultimately decided to partner up with us to take his new “Clockwork EP” directly to his fans for free. We have featured his monstrous Internet Friends Bootleg and Who Is Ready to Jump Bootleg and loved everything else we have heard from him. His Clockwork EP features two tracks both focusing on complex instrumental compositions which contain “syncopating sounds together like moving pieces in a clock, creating a single machine ticking through the pulse of music”. The title track, “Clockwork”, fusing electro and techno, opens up with an aggressive intro quickly moving into a drop filled with some raw basslines that will hit you square in the face. “Synthphony” takes us on a complex electro themed spacey journey carrying out some trance influcnce letting you get lost in the melodies. Both of these songs are incredible and ready to set off festivals, raves and clubs across the world. A huge thanks to Revolvr for contacting us to partner up on this release through This Song Is Sick. All you have to do is like Revolvr on Facebook to grab the free download, link below. Turn these up, enjoy!
