My expectations were quite low before hitting play on their new album ‘1111’. But after having it on repeat over the past few days I have come to the conclusion that it is a fantastic album. It’s obviously not going to be a commercial success and not appeal to the masses but I think Guy and Sean realise that by making it available for free. But you know, a few people who wouldn’t necessarily buy will download it and hopefully they will enjoy the music. My only criticism is that I would’ve liked to see them experiment with a bit more rap.
Couldn’t agree more when Puff Daddy talks about how certain great DJ’s play for the crowd and take them on a journey. These days we quite often see DJ’s turn up with pre-compiled tracklists on their laptop, hit play and throw in the odd silly effect with no intention of reading the crowd.
Good to hear Pete Tong talk about the current electronic music scene too.
When I first heard the news that Guy Gerber was teaming up with Puff Daddy I thought shit, Puff is going to want him to make some cheesy american EDM/ David Guetta style track and his career as a great producer is over. But the two tracks I have heard are actually pretty good and from what I have read the album is going to be available for free. Great to see Guy is keeping to what he does best. Go and check the two tracks out on his SoundCloud page.
Haunting, ethereal, emotive, propulsive Guy Gerber and Diddy’s long-awaited collaborative album project 11 11 will at last be revealed to the public for free this Summer…Beginning with a preview of their track My Heart.
At once a meeting of two worlds, and yet also a dismissal of those signifiers, 11 11 inverts the recent dialogue between the worlds of hip-hop and electronic music, eschewing simple radio friendly factory fare, for darker, richer, deeper soundscapes. 11 11 is not a project aimed at main-stages and masses, but outliers and after-hours.
A lovely melodic synth track by Guy Gerber and Clarian. Once I heard the wicked rolling baseline and old school style synths I thought it sounded pretty refreshing, but then I was taken aback when the beautiful melodies and ambient vocals kick in. What a track!
Nice little chilled progressive set by Luis Bondio. If any one can fill in the gaps then that would be great.
