The Point G Experience is a masterclass from one of Frances greatest house music artists Point G aka DJ Gregory (Darsa). Released on 22 May this album is released both as a full DJ mix and an unmixed collection and contains his much sought after vinylonly EPs alongside new material (full tracklisting below). With a career spanning two decades Gregory Darsa has long since earned his place within the canon of French electronic music originators alongside Daft Punk Laurent Garnier Air St Germain et al. An ability to stay ahead of the curve testament to his aesthetic and an uncompromising musical vision is the reason for both the level of demand for his recordings and the long queues for his shows at Fabric DC10 Panorama Bar Bloop and beyond. Gregory resurrected his Point G guise in 2013; his early Point G tracks such as Chicken Coma Underwater and Hands from the late 1990s having achieved cult status during the 2000s (during which time he was busy defining a second era of French house music with his collaborative Africanism project and then his own Faya Combo imprint). The likes of Loco Dice DJulz and Dan Ghenacia had asked him repeatedly about bringing back the alias as the original Point G tracks had rarely left their sets. After one such party in Amsterdam Ghenacia asked Gregory if he could reissue Underwater as the first release on the new Apollonia imprint and Darsa agreed. The reaction amongst DJs (and sales for the release) were immense. Point G was reborn. Since then anything bearing the Point G moniker has been eagerly snapped up by record shop selectors and vinyl purists and hammered in the club by the likes of Apollonia Ricardo Villalobos Jamie Jones and many more. Hypnotic minimal beats embellished with raw abstract textures are the hallmarks of the Point G sound. Working with analog gear and state of the art software hes created eight PG EPs to date and developed the music into a muchlauded live set (recorded and released as Live Season 1 in 2016). The Point G Experience both mixed and unmixed versions (the latter contains new versions of Braka and Indian) is an opportunity to hear Darsas works in longform for the first time. The intricate arrangements and continuity between the individual tracks make this a superlative listening experience something to be treasured by fans and anyone whos slept on the EP series. For each Point G EP release (and this album) Darsa has created highly distinctive paintings and used these as the basis for the artwork. He paints these largescale black and white murals in his Parisian studio stating that his innocent style reveals the complexity between culture and soul.
