Top 5 Underground Parisian Tracks : GIGEE

For our latest Top 5 Tracks interview series, we caught up with GIGEE. She has recently released her EP ‘Lullaby’ on mobilee. This is the Polish-born, Paris-based live wire’s debut on the prestigious label – everything about this girl is fire, she’s definitely making her mark on the scene right now!

With a fruitful career working behind the scenes in electronic music for many years, GIGEE finally stepped into the spotlight herself with her debut EP in October on Katermuke. Following that success (supported by Charlotte de Witte whilst still charting high on Beatport) she’s back with this four tracker, including AFFKT and Ivan Masa remixes.

Marcelus – Shape

This track still resonates in my head when I think about one of my first industrial underground raves on the suburbs of Paris.

Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann – Phantom Studies

I heard this one in Palais, Tokyo for the first time, thinking fckn hell what a BANGER”. I’ve been playing it at my gigs ever since…

Johannes Heil – Exile 007 B2

This one has a wide range of intensity; I love how the track evolves after the first breakdown. It always reminds me of Rex Club, it’s deep, dark, with an intensive bassline and catchy arps. I just love it.

Terence Fixmer – Le Terrible

Parisian producers search out rhythms from around the world and weave together hybrid genres from whatever washes up on their hard drives. Le Terrible” from Terence Fixmer is one of those.

ANTONIN – Ca fait du bien (Polo & Pan remix)

This is the other side of the Parisian sound, still electronic but leaving the techno field. This song is also a good example of the peculiar “Parisian sound” that was emerging at that time.
