Gigamesh’s debut self-titled EP is available through all digital retailers starting today, October 18, through Our Label International. Additionally, fans can buy the extended version of the single When You’re Dancing Ft. Induce exclusively on Beatport. Gigamesh has received considerable attention and support from DJs as diverse as DJ AM and Brodinski to Busy P and Fare Soldi for his bootleg remixes of artists like Animal Collecitve, Lykke Li and Radiohead, the latter two of which hit #1 on the Hype Machine. In celebration of the EP release, he has released the new “It’s So Intense” (Fare Soldi Enrico Pallazzo Remix) MP3. Check it out where it premiered earlier today with Big Shot Magazine or HERE.
 
Gigamesh opens the EP with disco-infused single “When You're Dancing (feat. Induce)” with a hook that commands you to move. “It’s So Intense” lives up to its name as a hazy synth-driven club banger. EP closer “People” shows the melodic side of Gigamesh, lead by melodic vocals from Nicole Godiva while still incorporating bass guitar and synths. 
 
Known for pushing the boundaries of dance music, Gigamesh has been making his mark for several years in dance clubs around the world. He has garnered widespread success with his own popular blend of remixes, as well as his work with remix group DiscoTech, and his role in Señor Stereo, a disco influenced live-electronic group. Gigamesh was hired to remix Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me” in late 2009.  Ultimately chosen to be the first single on Posner’s debut album, the Gigamesh version went on to sell over 2.5 million copies and hit the #6 positionon Billboard. Stay tuned for more from Gigamesh and be sure to catch him live on tour this fall!

Here's a live performance video of a new song that I wrote called "Reach Up".
I had an amazing opportunity to perform it at "Occupy Toronto" this weekend.
 
The Occupy protests began as a grassroots movement in New York and have recently spread to over 1000 cities worldwide. This movement's purpose is to help raise awareness about the disastrous humanitarian & environmental effects of corporate greed, political corruption, extreme economic inequality, and the resulting need for social change on a global level.

Watch as Rawls takes a sample, sets it to some drums, and comes up with a knocking instrumental. J Rawls' new album "The Hip-Hop Affect" is now in stores everywhere.
