I met the blonde giant known as Gigamesh in a Starbucks in downtown Vancouver. He was doing a little production while he waited. Matt aka Gigamesh started out remixing with his brother, calling themselves Discotech, but he has since gone solo, making some of my favorite remixes. Recently he has started his own orignal productions, releasing an EP on the Kitsune label.
I get him to chat about remixing and he is surprisingly candid. (Seriously, you will not believe some of the stuff this guy says!)
Gigamesh “When You’re Dancing” (RAC remix) Gigamesh and RAC are my two favorite remixers, so this track is one of my favorites.)
Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (Gigamesh Remix) This is the remix that caught everyone’s attention.
Also note: Gigamesh is back in Vancouver this holiday weekend, Sunday July 1st at Shine. See you there!
