"Gesaffelstein" is a portmanteau of the term Gesamtkunstwerk ("total work of art") and (Albert) Einstein. His first EP, Vengeance Factory, was released in 2008 on OD Records, to critical acclaim. In 2010, he was signed to Turbo Records, which was followed by the release of Variations, his second extended play. Two further releases, Conspiracy Pt.1 and Conspiracy Pt.2, the latter featuring "Viol", a track which caught Kanye West's attention upon release, thus leading to Gesaffelstein producing two tracks on West's Yeezus album ("Black Skinhead" and "Send It Up") in 2013. Gesaffelstein's debut full-length album Aleph was released in October of the same year.
It received critical acclaim and videos for "Pursuit" and "Hate or Glory" were released. The soundtrack to the film Maryland: Disorder was produced by Lévy and released in 2015. A collaboration with renowned French composer Jean Michel Jarre, titled "Conquistador" was released in the same year. Official site: www.gesaffelstein.com Read more on Last.fm.
