TheHundred Presents: Gigamesh w/Babyshoe, Captain Safety, boyhollow & option4 this Saturday 5/26 @Beauty Bar

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Already? Time flies. This represents the 7th installment of our highly successful dance party featuring the one and only Gigamesh (Denver Debut) with STRONG local support from Babyshoe, Captain Safety, boyhollow and of course option4.

Gigamesh aka Matt Masurka hails from Minneapolis and has quickly become a household name mostly because of his stellar remix work. His recent stylings lean more in the 80s disco boogie realm, but his earlier work (mostly with collective DiscoTech) leaned more on the electro side of the spectrum. Matt’s a huge fan of minimalist concert music, jazz, disco, film music, classic rock, and genre-bending electronic music. This obviously makes him well rounded musically and also speaks volumes about what you hear in his tracks from both a technical and stylistic standpoint. One of his most notable remixes was for a track by Mike Posner. The remix was initially released on a mixtape, but was ultimately chosen as the lead single off of Posner’s debut album. The single went on to sell over 2 Million copies consequently launching Posner’s career as a pop star. Since then he’s been commissioned to do official remixes for Foster The People, Katy B and Grouplove among others.

He released his first official EP in October of this past year to vast acclaim in the indie dance world. His latest EP All My Life was recently released on indie dance giant Kitsune exclusively on Beatport this past week. It will be available everywhere else next week.

In attempts to make this experience more personal, I contacted Matt for an interview. He politely and respectfully declined stating that it was nothing personal, he just isn’t very good at describing what he does. Good answer as even though I’m not a producer myself, if I were, I would want my music to do the talking. Below you will find a preview of his new EP along with a huge chunk of his brilliant remixes, more than half of which are available for your downloading pleasure via Soundcloud. Enjoy and I look forward to seeing you all on the dance floor. Make sure you get there early and support our locals as well. I for one, can’t wait.

Know Where You’ve Been

You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going. You kids probably don’t remember, but this is how we did it in 1977:
