About Gabe Gurnsey
With Factory Floor and on his own, producer Gabe Gurnsey makes hypnotic tracks indebted to post-punk, house, and techno. As a solo artist, however, he trades his group's lengthy, chilly excursions for warmer and more playful territory. On releases such as his 2018 debut Physical, he adds electro, acid house, funk, EBM, and synth pop elements to his pursuit of the perfect groove.
Gurnsey began his solo career in early 2017, when downtime from Factory Floor allowed him to make some tracks on his own. With 30 demos to choose from, he crafted a narrative that captured the energy of a night at the club. For the better part of a year, he continued to refine these tracks, which incorporated live and programmed rhythms (mostly from 707, 808, and 909 drum machines) as well as Matilda Morris' vocals. The results were Physical, which arrived in August 2018 on Erol Alkan's Phantasy label. ~ Heather Phares
