About this item
Gerard Hanson fans are currently enjoying a feast of new and old music from the electro stalwart, with Frustated Funk reissuing a double 12" a few months ago and now this brand new LP on Forgotten Future.
One of the most revered and respected of the knob twiddlers, Hanson's aliases (Convextion, ERP), since 1995, have created some of the most unique and atmosphere-riddled pieces to have graced the techno and electro cannon. His scarce, quality-controlled output, coupled with his shyness towards publicity and an almost none existent touring schedule have earned his a diehard set of fans across the world, culminating in a now historical European debut here in Manchester in 2006 at the old Rampant Lion pub for (Wet Play precursor night), Detroit Public Radio - !!!
Anyway, what's in store on "Exomoon" I hear you ask? Well, the most emotion-charged neon-lit futurescapes I've heard for a while. Imagine if you were piloting a drone around nocturnal Tokyo in the year 2055. The reduction in combustion of fossil fuels resulting in a serene, quiet and crystal clear environment. You're darting around at sky-scraper height, surveying the cityscape in your precision, hovering craft. These are the kind of images I get right through "Exomoon", but everyone will have their own interpretation - the common theme evoking lucid dreams of science fiction megaworlds; A.I.-induced calm and an omnipresent, highly sentient, alien-robot hybrid that governs over all.
Highly, highly recommended!
Matt says: Gradually elevating himself to mythical demigod of electro, sitting alongside high priets Drexciya and Aux88, Convextion's ERP alias ushers forth a new era for hi-def electro. Harnessing new energy models and renewable fuels, this wide-spectrum trip should satify the most die-hard electro fans.
