EP Review: Minute Hour – Gemini Chris

GEMINI CHRIS is back with another body of work, this time taking in the shape of ‘Minute Hour’ which is far cry from his nostalgic EP, ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi?….’

In this five-track set, the London-based DJ exchanges the full-on techno house, heavily influenced from the late eighties and early nineties, for something bang up to date. From the beginning, you’re introduced to the vibrant presence of the overtones of tropical pop, which take centre stage, with a semi-breezy electronic bassline serving as a perfect backdrop.

Perfect for those summer days in the party land of Ibiza, ‘Minute Hour’ displays Chris as an multi-talented DJ who refuses to be pigeonholed to particular style of house music.

Looking forward to his next move…check him out below:

EP Review: Je Ne Sais Quoi – Gemini Chris

Of all the years of reviewing albums and EPs on NEW LEASE MUSIC, I am quite ashamed to say that I’ve never covered a house music album or EP. Well GEMINI CHRIS has broken that void and slipped his new EP entitled ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi’ into the blog’s limelight.

The Jamaican DJ take us back, way back to the late eighties/early nineties where techno house was rife, with infectious thumps of electronic hooks, coupled with the underlying bass which somehow gives the arrangements that extra fire.

Although this London-residing beat maestro arguably takes heavy influences from notable electronic acts such as Derrick May (Strings of Life), 808 State and Shades and Rhythm, he adds his own magic to techno house of the aforementioned era, giving it that certain Je Ne Sais Quoi… check out his set below:
