Galcher Lustwerk

The exquisite, atmospheric and subtly lysergic house music of Brooklyn's Galcher Lustwerk tells stories with few words and fewer sonic gestures. 


Galcher Lustwerk's vocal style is reminiscent of the literary "iceberg theory"— leaving certain things unsaid is more powerful than stating them. Combining just a few well-chosen words with stripped-back house beats has been a potent signature sound for the White Material artist. 

This approach was showcased last year on his debut single, Tape 22, and then on his 100% Galcher mix for Blowing Up The Workshop, which RA writers voted their favourite online mix of 2013. "It started from trying to make rap records," he told RA last year. "I became more and more interested in using words to communicate ideas—but only inferred ideas, not explicitly explained ones."
