Solé Fixtape Vol. 5 by Gigamesh November 20 2012
Wait, whats that?? You thought we were just going to let you cultivate your upper-lip tickler, only to let it blow majestically in the wind without anything to groove to? No way man. On behalf of all you Mo growers, we are pleased to bring you our monthly Fixtape, courtesy of yours truly, Solé Bicycle Co. This month we've partnered up with Movember to help find a cure for prostate cancer -- like we need another reason to grow out our stachios. Don't know what Movember is? Get outta yer konk shell and get amongst it. In fact, join our squad and help us creep out peeps and raise money at the same time.

A little more about this month's artist:
Born & raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota (aka Prince & Jimmy Jam's hometown, Lipps Inc's "Funkytown", etc), it’s no surprise Gigamesh has developed a keen taste for funk, disco and pop. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh is a fan of minimalist concert music, film scores, classic rock, italo disco, French house, Miami bass, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.
In October 2011, Gigamesh released his debut self-titled EP on Our Label International, which received wide acclaim in the disco and indie-dance community. Following his debut, Gigamesh began to develop a close relationship with French record label Kitsuné resulting in an invitation to perform on their highly-anticipated U.S. Club Night tour and the release of the “All My Life” EP by Kitsuné in May of 2012. In support of this EP Gigamesh has been touring the globe, including Asia, Australia, North America, and UK/Europe.
