Like some buff God-looking dude, Jon Gaiser
(a.k.a. Gaiser, a.k.a. Fraktion) emerged from his bedroom studio in a blaze of blue light. The genius was naked, except for a sweaty sheet wrapped about his waist, and he stroked his beard while muttering this rote quote: "My bedroom has always been a room full of gear that happened to have a bed in the corner." So wise, so sagacious, so weird -- Gaiser had just given birth to today's free MP3, a minimal techno baby called "New Dust."
It had been a tough 12-month gestation period since Gaiser's last album, 2008's Blank Fade
, but now he's got a baby that blips and bleeps and blaps better than the rest. Not to mention, he's also the proud father of twin 12" singles -- October's Pullpush
and November's Flashed
-- mothered by Richie Hawtin's M-NUS
label. And with all these newborns, it's time for a christening in the club, so get a glimpse of Gaiser the half-naked genius before he goes back to birthing little minimal masterpieces in his bedroom studio.
