Gentium is made up of tracks produced between 2007 and 2010.
Titled Gentium, the eight-track LP is comprised of tracks recorded between 2007 and 2010, half of which were “recorded on cassette then digitized on a Windows millennium edition PC”. The other half were produced in Gonzales’ current home studio, most in one take with “hardly any multi-tracking”.
Gonzales first appeared on Kyle Hall’s Wild Oats label back in 2010, but has since achieved cult status with records for a string of labels including The Trilogy Tapes, Berceuse Heroique, Third Ear and FIT Sound, covering everything from hardware techno to vintage electro.
Gentium is released on April 1 on 2LP and digital formats – you can get a taste of the album with the gutteral techno of ‘NVR’ below.
