Sad news for Gesaffelstein fans. The French DJ, producer has announced, in conjunction with his worthy inclusion on the Coachella 2015 lineup, that the performance would be the "Last Gesaffelstein Live." He delivered the news in very few words without much in the way of an explanation, as one would expect from Gesaffelstein, whose real is Mike Lévy via Mixmag.
The news has thrown fans into a panic, worried they may never see the Kanye West collaborator again, though it does not seem that is likely. It is more likely the case that he is retiring his "Aleph Live" setup and moving on to just DJ sets, at which he excels, notably alongside his Parisian, Bromance partner in crime Brodinski.
Gesaffelstein has taken the Aleph live show on the road around the world in 2014 to Paris, New York City, Amsterdam, Ultra Music Festival, Berlin and many other high-profile cities.
The French producer released his debut album ALEPH on Oct. 28, 2013 and took the album on the road with a special live tour.
He was a featured producer on West's latest album Yeezus, lending his hand on productions for "Black Skinhead" and "Send It Up" alongside Daft Punk and Brodinski.
No one will really know what Gesaffelstein meant by this announcement and what he has in store for the future until after Coachella. However with less touring, the brilliant techno producer will have more time to produce his dark Parisian influenced brand of music before the busy summer festival season begins.
Gesaffelstein will be joined on the Coachella lineup by dance heavyweights Alesso, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Kaskade, Porter Robinson, Nero, Madeon and others, while also performing alongside hip hop, rock and pop stars like AC/DC, Drake, Jack White, St. Vincent and others.
