Galway based DJ and Producer, GES makes his debut on Chapeau Music with a mighty EP called “7AM” which also includes the huge remix of Ben Prophet.
Perhaps for the vocal, perhaps for the synth, “7AM” physically transports the listener into another dimension, the crispy rides keeps the rhythm together with the kick drum and the breaks arrives unexpectedly. Leaving the listener immersed in the two synth lines waiting for the powerful restart that sounds loud in the chest as under a speaker wall.
“I’ve always loved 90’s house and rave music so I think I incorporate it in my music with out even realizing. The theme for this EP in my head was ‘Feel good music’ and I think tracks like Don’t Go really help encapsulate that. Where as I think 7am is the most unique of all the tracks as it goes down the more techno route of my production but also still having that feel good energy”.GES
Ben’s remix adds a tribal touch and gives the song a new look without distorting the original version. Pressing and primitive, a straight sound that never stops pushing on the accelerator.
“Don’t Go“, “Your Love” and “Take Me Away” add the “housy” touch that was missing to the EP. Classic synth piano lines that take us back to the early 90s proving without doubt that GES has an extraordinary capacity to move between Techno House sub-genres without losing his stylistic touch. Considering his young age all this has an even greater value.
“Being from Galway its hard not to be inspired by KETTAMA and Shampain what they’ve done for the scene not only in Galway. But all over Ireland its really sick to see that it is possible to break through”.GES
