When describing Gerard Hanson’s music, people often reach for the language of science fiction. Synths are comet trails or glittering nebulas. Elastic basslines cut through the air like jet engines. Many of his song titles reference some aspect of space travel, but when he plays live, either as Convextion or E.R.P., Hanson does more than just evoke sci-fi imagery—he transports you to another world.
Hanson, who has been putting out immaculate techno and electro records for the past two decades, enjoyed a banner year in 2016. He released a new album as Convextion and, as E.R.P., a pair of more electro-focussed EPs that perfectly balanced grace and grit.
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.
We are very excited to welcome Gerard as Convextion at Lethargy 2017 for one of his rare European Live performances!!!
