I picked up a copy on Beatport. It’s another solid release filled with classic Gaiser sounds and rhythms, but he’s thrown in a few subtle twists. For example, check out the funk and synth work on “Reflekts,” or the eerie, jack-inspired house music on “Dirty Tricks” and “Spillage”. Or the jarring, synth-fueled ambient tune (“Way Out”) that Gaiser uses to close the album.
While I would have been satisfied with a steady, predictable Gaiser EP, it’s encouraging to hear some adventurous efforts on False Light.
Gaiser’s live performances always stand out. As a longtime fan of Richie Hawtin, I must admit that each time I’ve seen him perform with Gaiser as the opener, it’s Gaiser who steals the show. Maybe it’s a master/grasshopper sort of situation.
