Gerd - For 12 Minutes She Danced With An Alien

Dutch producer Gert-Jan Bijl, AKA Gerd, has been putting out house, techno and downtempo/leftfield records since 1994, though it's really only in the last few years he's come to wider international attention, most notably with 2006's excellent Perspectives long-player.

Here one of his earliest releases - originally forming the B-side of 1995's Arkest's Blaze – gets a 2010 re-release with new mixes by Gerd himself and fellow Dutchman Joris Voorn. Gerd's own 2010 Remix is a chugging, eyes-wide-shut groover with proggy/Balearic overtones, while Voorn scatters just a little more disco dust over it on his Ruff Mix, which has a slightly west coast kinda feel to it.

Out: This week

About: This is on Gerd's own Rejected Music, which he runs with Edwin Oosterwal.
