There aren't many electronic musicians alive today—and he's almost not alive today after a near-fatal scooter accident in July, 2013—that possess the same aurora and pure fan wonderment that William Bensussen (a.k.a. The Gaslamp Killer) does. His worldly, psychedelic musical offerings pull from a wide-ranging pool of influences, from Turkish psych to Ethiopic jazz, Middle-Eastern rare grooves and beyond, and have landed on labels such as Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder, Alpha Pup, and his own Gaslamp Killer Music. A founding member of LA's notorious, genre-bending collective and club night Low End Theory, Bensussen's chops behind the decks match that of his production output, resulting in a frenzied and often polarizing melting pot of disparate rhythms and bass-heavy beats. A true digger, Bensussen's record collection is rumoured to be sitting around the 14,000 mark and his mixtapes are some of the most eclectic and celebrated in electronic music.
