Gesaffelstein follows 'Hyperion' with new six-track EP, 'NOVO SONIC SYSTEM' [Stream]
The days of half-decade gaps between Gesaffelstein drops are thankfully over. It has been a mere seven months since the Dark Prince of Techno’s highly anticipated comeback LP, Hyperion, and we already have a fresh new delivery from the French beat maker. This spring’s Columbia-backed sophomore LP signaled there was more to come from Gesaffelstein, which has now officially materialized as the NOVO SONIC SYSTEM EP.
The release is a six-track effort that incorporates the prolific producer’s most beloved sonic tropes—menacing, static instrumentals wrapped up into dystopian analog techno. Unlike the star-studded full length LP from earlier this spring, which featured the likes of Pharrell, The Weeknd, and HAIM, NOVO SONIC SYSTEM, finds Gesaffelstein alone in the void, offering near perfect additions to his catalog of brooding, warehouse-ready techno.
