The new prince of French Techno, Gesaffelstein has black eyes, pale face and a good taste for music. Mike Levy, aka Gesaffelstein, has become one of the most important DJs and producers in France. Ibiza is not his favorite place, but he believes it’s important to be there, at least in the eyes of Americans and Englishmen. In the July issue of DJ magazine, Gesaffelstein & Brodinski appear in the main cover and are being classified as “French New Wave”. A new wave that breaks with the French Touch 2.0, aesthetics.
“Techno music is a revolutionary genre, its possibilities are endless. You can introduce other influences like Funk, Electro, Brazilian music … This scene has brought music to its original roots. Music returns to the basic technology, the intransigence of underground resistance.”
Today Gesaffelstein plays at least two to three times a week at clubs in Europe and worldwide. Experiencing a rate which he said he did not suffer. When he is in Paris, he locks himself in his studio, a small room that was painted black in order to create an atmosphere that leads to creativity.
