Lookbook, True to Form (Remix EP)

Lookbook, True to Form (Gigamesh Remix)

Matt Masurka is one of the most underrated electronic music producers in Minnesota. Albeit, relative to other forms of music in the state – maybe we don’t do a very good job of putting the spotlight on our electronic music artists.

Nonetheless – at the rate he’s going, he might become among the most up and coming young producers in the United States. With his remixes and bootlegs picking up momentum, international dance pedigree have taken note and his DJ support list is growing to include some of the biggest names in indie dance: Busy P., A Trak, Steve Aoki, and Feadz – to name a few. This has lead to some amazing opportunities for remixing both Classixx and Beni on French powerhouse electronic dance label, Kitsuné (under his Gigamesh and Señor Stereo alias, respectively).

And that’s not all – he is also part of the mega dance remix project, DiscoTech whom regularly has official remixes commissioned by major labels, for some of the biggest names in pop music. All this – and believe it or not he had quite large shoes to fill when I commissioned this remix for him.

What happened was – Boombass of French electronic music legends, Cassius was slated for a proper club remix. Unfortunately, due to reasons beyond his control, Boombass was not able to complete the remix on schedule. I called Matt, and he was more than thrilled to remix one of his favorite Minneapolis artists. The resulting Gigamesh remix doesn’t stray too much from the original, but adds even more sheen and brilliance – through fantastic production, to make a subdued club floor killer. Self indulgently, it made the song super fresh for me once again – great work Gigamesh
