"“Gunslinger has somehow managed to infiltrate the world of regular atmospheric rock and roll, and turn it into a danceable bit of electronica that never seems to lose its artistic touch.”"

What in the sweet hell is going on here? Who is this Gunslinger and how has he somehow managed to infiltrate the world of regular atmospheric rock and roll, and turn it into a danceable bit of electronica that never really seems to lose its artistic touch. If something doesn’t seem just right about Early Volumes 1, it’s only because all the perquisites of regular dance music has suddenly take a strange and crazy original turn towards indie rock, and collided with a massive soundscape of very fresh sounds.

As soon as the album kicks off, literally 3 seconds into “Run For Your Life,” the confusion begins to sink in. And it doesn’t get much easier to understand as the songs progress. Each and every track on Early Volumes 1 could easily be transformed into your standard Morrissey influenced sappy indie rock song. But instead of moping, you are encouraged to dance? Enjoy yourself even? Who would have ever thought you could hear a genuine bit of storytelling as someone smashes your Ecstasy numbed face with a glittered glow stick? And trust me, as strange as it is, it’s almost impossible to try and convince you of how strangely wonderful this sound really is.

If Simon Le Bon ever got his crazy little fingers on a copy of Gunslinger’s Early Volume 1, it would not be surprising to see him shit himself in public. This is the sort of originality that people (including myself) seem to think is of accord in the modern world of music. But, obviously it is out there. And that is the beauty of today. Gunslinger is an act that would have thrived immensely in the original dance oriented periods in time. And it certainly has the ability to so now as well. - Fensepost

Bio

Gunslinger is a genre-jumping group of DJs/producers/musicians.
Forged by the musings of Anthem and mad tinkering of Vidal, Gunslinger
pairs past with present, blending organic sounds, structure, and vocals
with giant electronic dance floor productions.

As DJs they have opened for some of the biggest names in dance
including Tiesto, Pendulum and Shpongle. As a live electronic band they
have toured the U.S., Mexico, Australia and Brazil with Infected
Mushroom. Releasing on labels such as Last Gang, BugEyed, Audiophile and
Open Flame. Their electro house EPs chart repeatedly on Beatport and their remix of
“Blues Traveler’s” Runaround was so well liked by the band that it was
put on their 25th anniversary Universal release.


Whether it’s a a slamming DJ set or a unique live show of guitar, synths and drums, Gunslinger aims to please.
