George Clanton / Negative Gemini / Esprit 空想 Doors 7:30 / Show 8:00 / $12 adv / $15 day-of George Clanton "The producer George Clanton makes expansive electronic pop influenced by Eighties sounds. His big drum beats and vintage synth sounds are reminiscent of artists like John Maus, who take on new wave–like pop from a slightly distorted angle. But Clanton, who has worked in the dubious vaporwave meme-genre in the past, is more accessible and less afraid to go all the way into pop territory. His tracks are maximalist, exploding into colorful, exuberant climaxes. For someone who has lurked in some of the strangest corners of the Internet, Clanton makes songs that manage to be truly anthemic, something anyone can enjoy." - Village Voice Negative Gemini "Negative Gemini, makes a genre-spanning blend of ’90s techno and heady modern electronica: a little Chicago, a little Detroit, and a whole lot of Brooklyn. But unlike many of her contemporaries, French conveys her personality and experiences through vocals and lyrics, not just tight production" – NYLON Esprit 空想 ESPRIT began in 2012 as the sample-based side-project of electronic pop artist “George Clanton.” ESPRIT’s first two EP’s “Girls Only” and “Summer Night” are still considered essential listening for any newcomers to the vaporwave genre. In 2014, when vaporwave was still defined by its use of found music and manipulated samples, ESPRIT released his ‘Virtua.zip’ LP composed entirely of original material. In the 3 years since its release, the vaporwave scene at large has followed this trend. His latest album, 2017's "200% Electronica," is now available worldwide.
