Gescom

Shrouded in conjecture and only a wee little bit of good fun, Gescom may be the more dancefloor-friendly identity of Sean Booth and Rob Brown, aka Autechre. The majority of the pair’s Gescom materials (save for an EP a bit on “upcoming funk” label Crystal clear and David Moufang’s Supply label, and a mail-order-only 12″ wanted to members from the group’s fanclub) continues to be released through the Manchester-based experimental techno label Skam, possessed and controlled by periodic collaborator Andy Maddocks. Concentrating on the greater uptempo tendencies of Autechre matched using a harder, rougher, even more driving rhythmic advantage, Gescom material continues to be committed to the greater adventurous aspect of electro/techno even while it offers DJs a little more backbeat to utilize. The group strike a little bit of reputation (apart, obviously, in the thick-and-thin commitment of Ae trainspotters) whenever a monitor (“Mag”) off their second Skam 12″ was included on South London breakbeat virtuosos Coldcut’s famous Journeys by DJ combine session. The initial Gescom full-length, MiniDisc, made an appearance in 1998. Silence after that dropped upon Gescom produces until 2003 when the Iss:Sa EP arrived the same time as the Autechre complete duration Draft 7.30.
