Gerard Hanson was born in 1972. He hails from of Dallas, Texas USA.
Little is known about this producer who seems to have Scandinavian roots. His productions have reflections with Basic Channel/Chain Reaction sound. His main inspirations are Juan Atkins and Derrick May. His music also has influences from Stefan Robbers, Red Planet and Carl Craig. He found a way where everything came together: Deepness, Minimalism and Soul, the Detroit-Berlin connection. In 1994 Gerard Hanson and Dan Kurzius started ‘Hardsync’, a Magazine dedicated to electronic music reviews and artist interviews. It has been defunct since 1996 as a result of a computer crash. Hard Sync was an outlet for several Texas-based electronic music enthusiasts to reach out to others around the world that shared similar musical interests. He released his first 12″ on Matrix in 1995. From 1995-1997, he released five ep’s, and then only two more in the next six years until 2005. After that some other labels approached him but just wanted more of the same and didn’t really seem to understand his sound. After that he stopped releasing music and produced only for his personal usage. After a couple of years the label Down Low convinced him to pick up his producing again. He is very careful about sharing his music with the rest of the world. In the last decade he only used the aliases Convextion and E.R.P. (Event Related Potential). E.R.P is an electro-edged moniker. Gerard has remained willingly anonymous since his debut in 1995, but he came out of obscurity for a debut European Live performance in London in April 2006.
Active since 2007, Komatssu is the most personal project by Hector Sandoval (Tensal and 50% of renowned techno project Exium). A project based on the natural fusion of the most melodic IDM and ghostly avant-techno, conceiving sound as a catalyst of emotions in order to create a truly personal landscape.
Both in his live shows and Dj sessions, Sandoval explores the different structures and sound intensities that exist around IDM, electro and avant-techno, also leaving space for more ambient moments.
After their last releases on Editions Mego and Barcelona’s Sin hilo label, a new Komatssu remix for Germain Affair will soon be published by a recently created label from Barcelona, Set Theory. Their first release is a remix album by Captains, Fee Reega’s electronic proyect, which includes remixes by Oscar Mulero, among others.
