His presence both on social media and in real life has earned him a reputation as the dark prince of techno. With early influences from Depeche Mode , Detroit electro and EBM , Gesaffelstein developed his unique sonic textures with genius sound design. As his love for this sound developed he began tinkering and playing around with different synths and styles. Michel Amato aka The Hacker is widely regarded as one of the most prolific electro artists of the last 25 years and his work with Miss Kittin and David Carretta helped to guide Gesaffelstein creatively. It was the only music I understood because everything he made was so logical for me". A few days later, Michel got in touch and the rest is history. The pair became good friends and Amato acted as a mentor to Gesaffelstein, helping him to hone both his production style and DJ technique. The quintessentially electro-style track put his name out there before his next record came out the following year via Zone.
