Gaslamp Killer and Heliocentrics are like two peas in a proverbial pod. They both traffic in heavy psychedelic music festooned with solid beats. With Helio vs. GLK the eccentric producer takes his unique approach to chopping mixing the Helio's latest album. Here's what GLK had to say about the mix: In 2008 (Stones Throw art director) Jeff Jank asked me to make a Heliocentrics podcast for Stones Throw to help promote the guys first album. It was one of my most fun & unique mixes. Here we are five years later in 2013 and again, I was asked to make a mix of some of the bands newest material from their superb album entitled 13 Degrees of Reality that was just released and I was even granted access to some of the unreleased sessions that I had been hearing so much about for so many years from Egon. It is an honor that I present this, (my newest mix) HELIO X GLK to the world. My chopped up / re-edited madness from the band they call The Heliocentrics! Limited to 1000 copies.
