MP3 of the Day: "New Dust" by Gaiser, Playing the Electric Pickle November 20

Like some buff God-looking dude, Jon Gaiser (a.k.a. Gaiser, a.k.a. Fraktion) emerged from his bedroom studio in a blaze of blue light. The genius was naked, except for a sweaty sheet wrapped about his waist, and he stroked his beard while muttering this rote quote: "My bedroom has always been a room full of gear that happened to have a bed in the corner." So wise, so sagacious, so weird -- Gaiser had just given birth to today's free MP3, a minimal techno baby called "New Dust." 

It had been a tough 12-month gestation period since Gaiser's last album, 2008's Blank Fade, but now he's got a baby that blips and bleeps and blaps better than the rest. Not to mention, he's also the proud father of twin 12" singles -- October's Pullpush and November's Flashed -- mothered by Richie Hawtin's M-NUS label. And with all these newborns, it's time for a christening in the club, so get a glimpse of Gaiser the half-naked genius before he goes back to birthing little minimal masterpieces in his bedroom studio.

With Will Renuart and Stickly B, Basti, and Alejandro Sab. Friday, November 20. Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Doors open at 10 p.m., and tickets are $15 through Ages 21+ with ID. 305-456-5613; Electric Pickle at
