Australian DJ and producer GEM is set to release a 10 track album that reimagines 1970s hits through the lens of modern electronica.
Her second single, The Rolling Stones classic Miss You, reached #10 iTunes chart, a sexy female reinterpretation sets a moody chillwave vibe for the rest of the record.
Though the album will feature a clutch of familiar tunes, GEM’s intention as producer was to subvert listeners’ expectations of how these vintage hits — many of them over forty years old — could sound. “My aim from the outset was to create a total vibe,” she explains, “start to end. Taking it old school and crafting a record you can put on and experience. A feeling of familiarity as you step inside a new world…”.
The2070s is kicking off in Sydney, Australia, at The Basement March 28th.
