BREAKING: Mysterious Gesaffelstein billboards begin appearing around the world
Is Gesaffelstein teasing a comeback? Just typing the sentence is enough to induce goosebumps.
Techno’s prodigal son famously hung up his live performance chops in 2015 at the top of his game with a groundbreaking final performance at Coachella. While he’s broken radio silence with a few key production credits over the last three years, there’s undeniably been a void where Gesaffelstein once stood, though now, mysterious new billboards currently cropping up across the globe suggest the suit-clad, cigarette-wielding dark prince of techno may be on his way back.
The enigmatic graphics follow Aphex Twin‘s similar campaign from earlier this year, with the producer’s logo popped up in New York, London, Hollywood and more. While these new billboards don’t reveal any details about the Aleph creator’s next move, though they could likely allude to new music in the near future, or perhaps, although much less likely, a comeback live performance of some sort. It has been a long three years since Gesaffelstein went on hiatus, though it seems he may be coming out of semi-retirement with a statement to make soon.
