Gigamesh will be performing at Mezzanine on Saturday, July 7th as part of his summer tour with Punks Jump Up.
Gigamesh is the stage name of Matt Masurka, an American multi-platinum selling music producer and DJ. Most recognized for his remix work, he has experienced a swiftly building reputation as one of the most versatile and consistent names in indie-dance music.
Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, it's no surprise Gigamesh has developed a keen taste for disco and 80's electro. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh considers himself an ardent fan of minimalist concert music, jazz, disco, film music, classic rock, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.
In October 2011, Gigamesh released his debut self-titled EP on Our Label International, which received wide acclaim in the disco and indie-dance community. Following his debut release, Gigamesh began to develop a close relationship with French record label Kitsune resulting in an invitation to perform on several dates of their highly-anticipated U.S. Club Night tour. With this, Gigamesh went on to release a track on Kitsune's "America" compilation and subsequently releasing his "All My Life" EP on May 28th, 2012.
