French producer and DJ Gesaffelstein recently collaborated with The Weeknd on his single "Lost In The Fire" that was released back in January, and now he shared his track "Blast Off" featuring Pharrell Williams. Gesaffelstein's forthcoming Columbia Records project Hyperion is set to drop on March 8, and this Electro-meets-R&B single is an up-tempo, yet smooth, dance track that blends genres nicely. It may not be how many Skateboard P fans are used to hearing Pharrell, but the eclectic artist has experimented with sounds throughout his career.
Gesaffelstein, who is known for being a mysterious artist, has previously spoken about his reputation saying, “People think I’m mysterious but I’m not – that’s just what they think. I’m just me.
