Gigamesh is the stage name of Matt Masurka, an American multi-platinum selling music producer and DJ. His numerous remixes and two EPs have earned him 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 funk, disco and pop. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh is an ardent fan of minimalist concert music, film scores, classic rock, italo disco, French house, Miami bass, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.
Gigamesh first gained exposure on music blogs for bootleg reworks of pop hits from Michael Jackson, New Order, The Clash, Stardust and dozens more. He went on to produce a #6 Billboard Single (also iTunes 2010 Pop Single Of The Year) and very well-received remixes for Foster The People, Two Door Cinema Club, Katy B, Theophilus London, Citizens, Grouplove and more. Now a multi-platinum selling producer and frequent member of The Hype Machine’s popular chart #1 spot, Gigamesh has firmly established himself as a respected trendsetter in modern dance music.
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, Gigamesh began to develop a close relationship with French record label Kitsuné resulting in an invitation to perform on their highly-anticipated U.S. Club Night tour and the release of the “All My Life” EP by Kitsuné in May of 2012. In support of this EP Gigamesh has been touring the globe, including Asia, Australia, North America, and UK/Europe.
Gigamesh continues to gain recognition as one of the top producers of modern dance music going in to 2013. With no time to waste, Gigamesh is starting off the year by releasing a new single, ‘Enjoy.’ ‘Enjoy’ features a remix by Oliver and will be out on NYC’s fresh house label – Nurvous Records (Feb. 12th).
Xaphoon Jones (DJ Set)
Born and currently residing in Philadelphia, Xaphoon Jones is one of the many pseudonyms of the producer / multi-instrumentalist known to many as Noah Breakfast. Raised by Philly's R&B, Gospel, and Jazz scene (and one punk
uncle), Xaph's inventive rap beats first found a home in the early mixtapes of rap duo Chiddy Bang, and soon found its way onto releases from Big Sean, Dice Raw (of The Roots), Big Boi, Theophilus London and Wiley. Since then, Noah's production repertoire has grown to include the shimmery, textured pop
of Ellie Goulding and the lo-fi R&B of Aaron Livingston, as well as official remixes for Grouplove, Passion Pit, and more.
