Convextion – Miranda (Deep Chord Remix)

DeepChord is two seperate words on this release. No bitching! 😉 Convextion – Miranda (Deep Chord Remix) Taken from the EP, Miranda (Remixes) (Matrix Records [Detroit] 2007) | DC | DUB | Gerard Hanson (Convextion, ERP, ERP) Gerard Hanson was born in 1972. He hails from the unlikely environments of Dallas, Texas USA. Little is known about this producer who seems to have Scandinavian roots. His productions have reflections with Basic Channel/Chain Reaction sound. His main inspirations are Juan Atkins and Derrick May. His music also has influences from Stefan Robbers, Red Planet and Carl Craig. He found a way where everything came together: Deepness, Minimalism and Soul, the Detroit-Berlin connection.

With such an honest mission, it’s no wonder the man known as Boris Bunnik has had continued success recently, with a number of singles, EPs and albums coming on respected imprints like, Clone, Delsin, Meanwhile and Rush Hour. As a live performer too he is garnering ever more support with gigs everywhere from New York to Tokyo helping to establish him as one of contemporary Techno’s finest craftsmen. Since initially being turned on to Acid and Rave thanks to a tape his father found in the wild nature, Conforce has been keen to go his own way.
