Jerry Abstract's Satiated Elation EP

Jerry Abstract’s Satiated Elation EP

Today is my buddy Gerald Larsh’s birthday. Most people don’t know who Gerald Larsh is. They know him as the DJ/Producer/Graphic Designer Jerry Abstract. He also records and releases music under a number of other monikers such as Ian Ginsing, Former Selv, and is one-half of the IDM duo Avee Libretto.

Today, also celebrates the three year anniversary of the release of Jerry Abstract’s six song EP, Satiated Elation. This EP dealt with similar issues I laid out in my previous posts regarding the Curtis Paul and Charles Pearson albums, the difference is this time I wised up a bit and recruited the expertise of the one-and-only Andy Toth (Detroit Grand Pubahs, Abbe & Toth) to take care of the mastering process. We also decided to do something a little different by recruiting Dan Grafton & David Chakur of Service Tech to manufacture tangible audio cassettes of the release, as well as distributing it digitally via everyone’s favorite media channels, and it is finally available on Beatport, Juno Download, Traxsource, where it belongs.

Today, Jerry needs your help. With the majority of the population streaming content via services like Spotify, which literally pay artists fractions of a penny per listen, royalties these days literally amount to nothing, and creatives like Jerry are suffering. Mr. Abstract has found himself in a difficult situation facing a number of medical and dental bills and has started a GoFundMe page where for a limited time, he is offering his entire discography (spanning 15 years, 103 songs, 10 hours 23 minutes) of original productions, remixes & live-sets in high quality .mp3 for your generous donation.

DBDJS & bEDOsHIRTS.com Presents:

:::Cuatro de Mayo Featuring:::

ANDY TOTH

Andy Toth’s production can be described as dark yet funky. He’s been producing music for over thirteen years now, and it keeps getting better. His illustrious career started with a stint in The Detroit Grand Pubahs, whose hit single “Sandwiches,” as well as the follow-up album, “Funk All Y’all,” saw to it that Andy would get the chance to peddle his wares on stages the world over. His ever-expanding production techniques have seen him working with Detroit’s top talent as a recording engineer, mastering professional, and producer of hip-hop, Rn’B, and electronic music. Andy has released tracks on labels like Jive Electro, Throw, D Records, Intuit Solar, Hej, Exchange Bureau Music, and People Mover Productions. Andy’s music has been traced as the root cause of the return of handle bar mustaches, the reason we like big butts, and the mass bumble bee extinction. Check it.

ERIC HINCHMAN
@ehinchman

Eric Hinchman began collecting and playing vinyl to audiences of Detroit over 20 years ago. His record selection varies depending on details like the weather, the hour of the day, or even the day of the year. Having performed at nearly every venue in the Motor City and beyond, Hinchman is probably best known for his year and a half residency at Pontiac’s Velvet Lounge, and his 2 1/2 year residency at Hamtramck’s Lush Lounge. Eric is one of the founding members of the collective known as the Detroit Bachelor DJ Society…the concept was created in his living room with Jeremy 2000 & Derek Plaslaiko back in 1997. While we’re at it. Rich grew his hair out and no longer wears glasses, so stop telling Eric how they used to look like each other…it’s no longer relevant…seriously stop.

CRAIG GONZALEZ
@CraigGonzalez

Hip-hop perked the interest of Detroit’s Craig Gonzalez to vinyl at a young age. When he attended his first Detroit underground dance party in 1994, he knew he discovered something special and decided to get in the game.

“There was always something that I just found really interesting with DJing itself,” said Gonzalez. “Maybe it’s the idea of taking other people’s tracks and forming my own kind of story with them over an extended period of time… it can be pretty powerful if done correctly. It’s kind of interesting to take part in something like that.”

Realizing how easy it was to get started, he taught himself to DJ and built up a name for himself, joining the roster of the Detroit Bachelor DJs collective: a lineup including several prominent Detroit dance music DJs. He soon had gigs at the legendary St. Andrew’s Hall for the “Three Floors of Fun” weekly, residencies at Ann Arbor’s Blind Pig on “Solar” Wednesdays and nights at clubs Industry and the Labyrinth in the 90s. Today he keeps the music going at various gigs around town and at CraigGonzalez.com with mixes impromptu and scheduled, while the sidebar doesn’t neglect his other passion for sports and gaming. When faced with this competitor on the decks, expect a selection of take-you-back tracks with his own spin on the story.

DREW MADDOX
@generationhex

For the past 15 years, Drew has been exploring and cultivating his love of electronic music by maintaining a presence in the Detroit area. His involvements with Paxahau, DBDJS, Nefarious & Movement alike have all had positive affects on his life and his constant feeding of the fire that sparked him at the beginning. As a DJ, his styles are deep and diverse, infinitely influenced by the vast sea of incredible local talent the city has forged over the past 30+ years.
