Vinyl Retention: Gerwin

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of electronic music…

Although having a strong pedigree in ridiculously funky House music, there’s no denying that the French know how to rock a broken beat. The latest IM:LTD release sees Frenchman Gerwin drop a ridiculously murky two tracker to get your head noddin’.

Having released a plethora of tracks on influential labels including Fokuz & Deep Soul Music, Gerwin’s latest release shows us why he’s become such an in demand producer in such a short space of time.

His latest single ‘Against The Clock/See Thru My Eyes’ sees him strip things right back, focusing on the detail & intricacies within a sparse arrangement. Producing music at plus 170BPM usually results in franticness, yet he manages to keep things subdued utilizing stripped back drums and short stabby bass hits.Moody atmospherics & Hip Hop styled vocal grunts keep things interesting and varied throughout.

One for the true headz.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm & 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the latest beats & bass from around the globe.
