Gesaffelstein x Ghostriders: Fixed-gear goth for Turbo

By Beatport News Editors


Whoever Gesaffelstein is—there’s precious little information about him out there—he clearly comes from a dark, dark place. His previous offerings for Turbo Recordings, Ed Banger and The Hacker’s Zone label, plus remixes for the likes of Miss Kittin, Cassius and Arnaud Rebotini, have been gritty electro-techno affairs, like waiting out the apocalypse in a Parisian underground sex club—scary and steamy in equal measure.

His “Conspiracy Vol. 2″ EP, again on Turbo, is his heaviest offering yet, with a slow-motion bump-and-grind and analog menace to spare. It’s the perfect complement to “Ghostriders,” a black-and-white short that imagines fixed-gear bikers as an army of the undead.

Check out the full release here, and discover one of Turbo’s brightest—well, darkest—new stars. And for more in a similar spirit, don’t miss Terence Fixmer’s excellent new single “The Night,” also on Turbo, featuring a gothed-out remix from none other than Marc Houle. Freaks come out at night!
