Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on November 7, 2012 by dk

Gemini aka Thomas Slinger, the 22-year-old producer, singer songwriter returns on November 12 with the “Mercury EP” on his own label Inspected Records, which has pioneered the rise of underground artists such as KOAN Sound and Zeds Dead.

Between amassing well over 20 million views across YouTube, completing a 33 date US and Canada tour and remixing the likes of Lana Del ReyEmeli Sandéand Ed SheeranGemini’s built up an incredible following over the last year. First came, Freedom, a heavy-hitting euphoric club anthem supported by the likes ofTiësto and Axwell, with over 100,000 views on UKF’s YouTube Channel in one week, introducing this EP with a bang. Next up is 3D Romeo, featuring vocals from the exceptional Fabienne that was premiered as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World on Radio 1. 3D Romeo is available to buy on Beatport now.

Rounding out the EP are three brand new productions that showcase the full breadth and depth of Gemini’s talents in his multiple roles as producer, songwriter and singer. From the emotive dance floor drive of Robots to the deeper, more poignant posture of “Losing My Way” and the pulsing drums and soaring synths of EP closer Second Law, “Mercury EP” is simply massive.

 Gemini will support the release with a two-week tour of the USA and Canada that culminates with a coveted slot on UKF’s big USA launch party in New York City on December 1

Gemini – Tribute Vol 2 (Robsoul, ROBSOUL105) (Preview Clips)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2012 by dk

March 2011 saw Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings revisit 4 of Gemini’s classic tracks, originally released on Cyclo Recordings in the 1990’s.  The release, simply called ‘Tribute EP’, was all that needed to be said about the impact Spencer Kincy has had on Phil Weeks’ own brand of house music.   January 2012 will see round two hit the shelves as four more Gemini tracks from the Cyclo vaults will be released as Tribute Vol 2.

The release of the first Tribute EP in March helped take Gemini’s music to a new generation.  Publications including DJ Mag, DeBug and 5 Mag all leant their support along with DJs including Soul Clap, Maya Jane Coles, Till Von Sein, Lee Burridge, D’Julz, Deetron, Danny Tenaglia, Catz N Dogz, Spencer Parker, Doc Martin, Charles Webster, the list goes on and on (…and on).

The Tribute EPs prove that, despite no longer being involved in the music scene, Spencer Kincy’s genius touch remains.

5 Magazine’s Terry Matthews on Gemini:
“Spencer Kincy was giant in Chicago’s House Music revival – part of the second wave of younger DJs and producers that took the music of the early 1980s, rubbed it up and dropped it in places like 500 West Cermak, Medusa’s and the Vault. A lot of people who are now superstars of the scene – Mark Farina, Sneak, Derrick Carter, and dozens of others – were a part of that movement, too. Spencer released a number of tracks on Relief, Planet E, Cajual, Peace Frog – labels representing the classics of that era – and he usually recorded under the name Gemini.”
