Gesaffelstein, an anomaly to some, a genius to many, has unceremoniously begun a mysterious countdown on his website. As the timer rapidly ticks away, there are 62 days remaining at the time of writing. This schedules the unknown event for September, and fans have wasted no time speculating as to what will happen when it the timer hits zero.
After announcing his Coachella performance to be his “last live set,” many were only just coming to realize the brilliance of the acclaimed French producer, Mike Lévy. Since then, he has been keeping busy, collaborating with the legendary Jean-Michel Jarre and providing the score to Diane Kruger’s Disorder, but Lévy has yet to release any solo work under Gesaffelstein.
Shrouded in mystique, critics the world over have called Gesaffelstein’s live shows following Aleph to be one of the most precise executions in dance music history- and they wouldn’t be wrong. Despite the end of his live performances, it’s certain that Gesaffelstein isn’t finished with us yet. We’ll just have to wait and see what’s next.
