The American Kenneth James Gibson originally from Austin, Texas is a man of many personas.
You may have stumbled across him since he has released on many labels with high profile such as Oracle, Revolver, Mo`s Ferry, Leftroom, Adjunct and has worked with Damian Lazarus, but more than that, he is a quite unpredictable and original person.
For Trapez he has teamed up with the Argentinean producer Juan Franco Di Lorenz aka Dilo. Dilo is by no means a new face on the electronic planet. He has released on Telegraph, Einmaleins, Minus, Adjunct, Soma and Leftroom and was remixed by prominent remixers such as: Sutekh, Mark Henning, Jay Haze, Bruno Pronsato, From Karaoke to Stardom, Ryan Crosson and certainly [a]pendics.shuffle. Dilo is a very open-minded producer who connects the two distinct worlds of rock and electronics via pop, IDM and experimentation. All this made him “the perfect partner” for Cascabel Gentz.
“Vaquero“ introduces the new wave of releases coming out on Trapez in new design. Their debut “Vaquero“ is a remarkable deep, dubbed out piece of techno soaked in spaced out sounds, uncompromising and authentic. The a-side “Cowboy Flyers” is a glamorous piece of techno. Drenched in that analogue and drugged out feeling this track is a bit or a prototype for the whole EP. A real jewel of a track where catchiness meets the abstract end of electronic dance music. “Never Beat” and “No More No Less” aim to maintain the same sweet sense of suspense and live of that intensive feeling of psychedelica some of us know from bands such as Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV or the The Heat. It is of no surprise that Kenneth got his first piece of equipment from our favourite band the Butthole Surfers, things just seem to belong to each other. The record is the first of more to come from the duo on Trapez.
