I barely caught a glimpse of it Gesaffelstein At Coachella 2015, he was absolutely one to be seen on my bucket list. But for a while, I never thought it would happen. Then he came back with HYPERION and announced a new tour, "Requiem", and my dreams finally came true.
When the show went around the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles in November 2019, he had already played Coachella and his Vantablack stage was well documented. But seeing it personally, along with Gesaffelstein's iconic techno, house, and electro style, was electrifying. The room was mostly dark, except for the interspersed lights on the stage and the glimmer of Gesa's own mirror suit.
The set itself was less like its latest album than a real stand for older fans. It was dark and grubby, with a few brighter moments, but definitely what everyone expected.
Now everyone there and anyone else who couldn't experience it can listen to this set at will. You can check the stream below!
