Negative Gemini
Negative Gemini (aka Lindsey French) is an American
electronic musician and producer, hailing from
Queens, New York who is known for her unique
approach to creating music that seems to effortlessly
combine elements of mid-90's trance and techno
influenced club with the poppy yet ethereal vocal
sensibilities of singers like Madonna or Mazzy Star's,
Hope Sandoval.
French had already been hard at work preparing a
new and more refined body of work before her arrival
in NYC (2015), and after a few months of testing it
out live in her new scene, Lindsey was ready to
unveil, Real V irtual Unison - an EP which was
released on Bandcamp in March of 2015 and went
on to earn a spot on FACT’s list of favorite
BandCamp releases in 2015 in addition to critical
response from numerous online media outlets
including Gorilla vs Bear, Pigeons and Planes, and
KEXP among others.
Soon after it's release, Lindsey, along with her
partner and fellow electronic producer, George
Clanton , formed their own independent vinyl-only
label, 100% Electronica . Her sound began to
generate attention, with many critics noting that
despite a lot of other contemporary electronic music,
her personality remained at the center of her sound
and style, ever-burgeoning with the young
producer’s unique visual aesthetic. Her often
reverb-drenched vocals also garnered comparison to
singers such as Bilinda Butcher and Miki Berenyi .
By late 2015, after the release Real Virtual Unison
earlier in the year, Lindsey began teasing her upcoming sophomore LP, Body Work with the release of numerous singles
beginning with, "You Never Knew", which was among the Best Songs of 2015 as listed by Gorilla vs Bear and Pigeons and
Ahead of her performance with Charlie XCX in March at the 2016 Hype Machine Presented Gorilla vs Bear SXSW
Showcase, Negative Gemini unveiled another single, "Body Work" which was covered by NYLON, The 405, EARMILK, as
well as many others. NPR's Otis Hart subsequently added the track to NPR's "Songs We Love" playlist and tweeted that
""Body Work" is 1 of the best things I've heard this year."
In June of 2016, Negative Gemini formally announced her upcoming sophomore album, Body Work with yet another single,
"Don't Worry Bout What The Fuck I'm Doing", an empowering summer anthem which was covered by everyone from
PAPER to The FADER and Nasty Gal.
The new albu m from Negative Gemini, Body Work was released on September 23rd 2016
via 100% Electronica . Since it’s release, ‘Body Work’ has received praise from Tiny Mix
Tapes , Skrillex-owned media platform Nest HQ , The 405 , Fact mag , and most notably full
features with interviews on both Bandcamp Daily and MTV news . The album has become
the darling many indie radio stations across the U.S. including WMBR Cambridge, MA &
Radio K Minneapolis of whom, in particular, are two of the best and most respected college
stations in the country, along with legendary Seattle radio KEXP. ‘Body Work’ was recently
named album of the week at Radio K.
George Clanton
Following three years of releasing music as the seminal vaporwave producer ESPRIT 空想, and
vocal-driven pop artist Mirror Kisses, George Clanton has dropped the alter egos. Clanton’s latest work is
built upon the foundation laid by those projects, but further pushes the sound of modern internet-bred
genres by adding timeless pop hooks and structure.
In the past year Clanton has gone on to launch his own all-vinyl record label,
100% Electronica - a platform from which George released his debut album of
the same title. The album 100% Electronica is George's attempt to combine
the Mirror Kisses and ESPRIT 空想 projects into one sound.
Following the release of 100% Electronica, the new project enjoyed a sharp
rise in popularity thanks to endorsements from Gorilla Vs Bear , FACT Mag ,
SPIN , and others. In 2016 George shared the stage with Charlie XCX , Sophie ,
and Teklife for the Gorilla Vs Bear SXSW Showcase at Hype Hotel; a
performance Yahoo Music highlighted, calling George Clanton specifically
“ the best thing we saw at SXSW all week.”
Since then George’s following has grown steadily as he continues to release some of Bandcamp’s
best-selling vinyl record s (Negative Gemini – Body Work, SURFING – Deep Fantasy, ESPRIT空想–, and more) through his own 100% Electronica label. To date, each individual release has
reached #1 on Bandcamp’s “best-selling” charts not just for vinyl but all music as well.
This year will see the release of George Clanton’s follow up album, and countrywide touring as he takes
his renowned show on the road for the first time outside of the Northeast.
