This could easily be the most adventurous IDM / electronic release this year. Before creating the glitchiest electronic music known to computers and men, Geste from Paris was an accomplished bass player in various bands, playing music from hardcore punk to post rock. Those influences are still alive in the ferocious energy of the music he does now. The title track "Jaw Breaker” will make your speakers scream "LOUD!", while "Ohm Sick" builds up tension second after second. Next up, "André" is pure and raw beauty, while the revised version of "Octobre" makes up a perfect ending for this astonishing debut.

Long version:

What we have here could easily be the most adventurous IDM / electronic 12” this year.

Before creating the glitchiest electronic music known to computers and men, Geste aka Francois-Charles Domergue was already an accomplished bass player in various bands, playing music from hardcore punk to post rock. Those influences are still alive in the ferocious energy of the music he does today, leading to a completely unique sound and approach that results in an astonishing 3 track debut release.

Introduced by a lullaby-like melody, the title track on this EP soon turns into a "Jaw Breaker"; in Geste's own words: "a sweaty dance to save your life". This is the one track that will make your speakers scream "LOUD!!!!".

While "Ohm Sick" continues in the same vein of "Jaw Breaker"'s astonishing synth work, it takes Geste's hardcore approach to song programming to a new level: the beat builds up tension second after second and every DJ will hear the crowd yearning for more.

Last but not least, the final track "André" is pure and raw beauty. Its edgy bassline challenges some spheric keyboard melodies to make it a perfect ending for this EP.
