Fans can prepare for Gesaffelstein’s Riverside set with his free download of “Hate Or Glory” (Gesaffelstein Remix) available here. The video for “Hate Or Glory” has been nominated for an MTV VMA award in the “Best Cinematography” category this year – watch it here.
Mike Lévy’s moniker, Gesaffelstein, is a combination the German word “gesamtkunstwerk,” meaning “universal artwork,” and Albert Einstein, an inspirational figure. He sets the bar high living up to the name, delivering top notch productions and performances time and time again. His energizing techno, dark and obsessional, works the dance-floor yet at the same time continues to mine emotional landscapes and powerful atmospheres.
The French producer remains on top of his game having released his critically acclaimed debut album Aleph last fall and collaborating with the likes of Kanye West and A$AP Rocky, as well as releasing remixes for Depeche Mode, Lana Del Rey, and Justice.

Signing to Hospital Records in 2009, releases such as “Memory Lane” and his infamous self-titled debut album Netsky propelled the talented young producer from Antwerp into a meteoritic rise to quickly become one of the most talked about and talented names within the electronic music world. His trademark sound, an explosive fusion of stirring vocals with a unique and soulful take on the drum & bass sound, has earned him respect and support from across the industry and an extensive, dedicated global fan base.
After signing with JHO Management, and then consequently to Epic Records for his first major release, “Running Low,” which has just charted at Number 1 in the Official Belgian singles chart, is the first taste of new material from Netsky, who has been locked in the studio, busily working on his third album which will released later in 2014.
Seamlessly blurring the lines between artist and superstar producer, Netsky also boasts an impressive cast list of remix duties, having remixed a number of huge anthems including Pendulum’s “Witchcraft”, Swedish House Mafia’s “One” and Rusko’s “Everyday”, which has since garnered nearly 18 million views on YouTube. Netsky tracks now account for 3 out of the 5 most viewed videos on UKF!
This summer sees another jam-packed touring schedule for Netsky, including a headlining slot at New York’s premier electronic music festival, Electric Zoo next month. One thing’s for sure, 2014 is looking to be a groundbreaking year of massive proportions for Belgium’s premium DJ export.
