Jon Gaiser returns with full length album ‘III’ on Minus
Throughout his career, Jon Gaiser has been synonymous with forward thinking techno and
sensory stimulating live audiovisual shows. Mixing up both analogue and digital recording
techniques, his abstract music never fails to be both cerebral and cinematic as well as fresh
and physical, never ceasing to place you right in the center of his own special universe.
Since 2014’s ‘False Light’, Jon has continued to headline shows around the world, while
constantly producing new material to test in his live sets. Always evolving whilst remaining
true to his singular vision for techno, this trained percussionist and skilled drummer once
again confounds expectation with his latest opus.
New Release Information
The album kicks off with the introductory ‘Wirelife’. Rolling beats underpin a percolating
synth line and sci-fi sound effects that immediately get you in the groove. ‘Stringtest’ and
‘Facefall’ seamlessly round out the first chapter with oodles of pure minimal funk and
rubbery bass, curious song details and subtle effects. The next chapter touches on darker,
hard hitting rhythms in ‘Doorway’, freaky dehumanized vocals with ‘Rubdown’ and choppy
house styles on ‘Out Too’, but all exude humid atmospheres and an inviting sense of
otherworldly charm. The last trio of tracks completes this fascinating story with the
shuffling drums of ‘How’s That’, the colorful melodies of ‘For Balance’ and playful
widescreen vibes of ‘On The Way’.
When all the tracks here are added together into one musical experience, it makes for a
fluid, expertly programmed ride that takes you somewhere new and exciting, as is always
the case with the one and only Gaiser.
