Berliner-based electronica live act GHEIST put forth two attention-grabbing tracks in their third release for Exploited, enlisting the aid of fellow producer and singer-songwriter Bayker on vocals and providing a cinematic experience to the EP, in the shape of a Gautier-produced video.
Eponymous track Salvation kicks off proceedings, showcasing a deep tech exploration with late night dancefloor appeal. The original exposes a gradually unfolding piece, boasting a clean cut rhythm section and a methodical, straightforward structure centered around minor chords.
Last Night In Paris reveals a dark brooding arrangement, as reflective vocals add a layer of mystery to the foundation of pensive pads and warped synths. What ensues is a contemplative atmosphere, that is mesmerizing as it is dance-inducing.
GHEIST kickstarted their young career last year and since then have grabbed attention from DJs and Media all over the place which led into a busy touring schedule including upcoming gigs at Razzmatazz Barcelona, Watergate Berlin, Sonne Mond Sterne Festival and many more club and festival appearances.
Very strong beginning for one of our new key acts on the label Exploited.

Is it possible that we just discovered our coolest find yet on this drag of a Monday? It might be, as James Curd has just about everything cool to offer us on a personal level: composer, skateboarder, synth collector, and a self-proclaimed burger connoisseur. And believe it or not, that’s without the cool factor he creates in his music.

“These days the attune nature of Compuphonic’s tracks is unmissable, with ‘Metropolis’ effortlessly gliding between the melancholy of melodies, dreamy vocal harmonies, and the grinding energy of beats. If you are awaiting those ‘out with winter in with spring’ vibes, like we are, then ‘Metropolis’ is definitely an EP not to miss.”
Belgian talent Compuphonic has long since demonstrated a serious knack for melodic sophistication, and this new EP for Exploited elevates those lush sounds to some stunning new levels.
Metropolis is a breezy slice of electronica, detached from the dancefloor whilst still taking some inspiration from it. A dreamy female vocal glistens over fuzzy pads in the intro before muted electric piano chords and the kick join in tandem. Heavenly vocal harmonies glide in the background alongside subtle chime tones, with a filtered down synth arp adding yet another dash of sweetness. The various elements slide and mesh against each other effortlessly, with sprinkles of subtle FX lifting the track in just the right places.
Slow Bilbao is more in the chunky deep house vein, hazy tuned percussion samples drenched in pleasing swathes of noise distortion hit in time with thumping kicks and thick bass tones. A melody unfolds in the higher registers from the xylophone-esque resampled instrument, recalling Bonobo at his best as a shuffling percussive groove develops. The samples bring an exotic tone to the track, with the contrasts between the deeper and more pumping sections an intensely satisfying one.
