Gesaffelstein‘s multi-weekend billing on Coachella’s 2019 lineup marks the enigmatic producer’s first return to the California affair since his 2015 appearance in the desert. It’s only fair to speculate that Gesaffelstein will come correct with plenty of sonic tricks up his sleeve, given the amount of time that has lapsed since his last performance at Coachella. Gesaffelstein’s set, broadcasted live from Coachella’s Outdoor Theatre, follows his March delivery of Hyperion, his sophomore album.
The followup to 2013’s Aleph, Hyperion saw Gesaffelstein exploring styles distinctive from those that characterized Aleph. Hyperion invited a select number of featured artists to assist on the aesthetic expanding offering, like HAIM and Pharrell Williams. Gesaffelstein’s Weekend 1 set comes with a bonus: Gesaffelstein’s delivery of the official music video for his Pharrell Williams collaboration, “Blast Off.”
