INSP001 Gemini — Blue EP (wav + mp3)
Hold the press! As much as you’re used to reading hyperbolic nonsense written by over-enthusiastic promo monkeys, we are not kidding when we tell you that here we have one of the most exciting dubstep debuts that you’re likely to hear this year.
Though many of you won’t have heard of Gemini yet, his rise to prominence is already assured. Without so much as a single dubstep release under his belt this young producer has been snapped up by Hadouken, Willow Smith and Kelis to remix their tracks.
“How did an unknown manage to pull that off?” we hear you ask. Well, it’s thanks in large part to YouTube. It’s unlikely Google could have predicted that their web 2.0 user populated video site would lead to such a goldmine of A&R wealth, but Gemini owes a debt to them since his track ‘Blue’ (featured on this EP) was spotted by management company Three Six Zero who immediately snapped him up for some serious remix work.
One listen to any of the four epic tracks on this EP will explain why Three Six Zero were so excited by this twenty year old prodigy who’s still completing his degree at university! Did we mention he sings all his own vocals too?!
