Track By Track: Baüzer Vep – The Gurner

Assemblies Of God is the new venture of Berlin-based DJ Bruno Schmidt.

In contrast to its parent label Domesticated, it will serve as a space for more comprehensive bodies of work from electronic producers who are also exploring musical spheres away from the dance floor.

First up is a relatively fresh moniker of Miami-based artist Pablo Arrangoiz. After releasing music under a number of aliases, including outings under his own name, as Goiz, DJ Fitness, Doctor Hotdog and Glue Boy, he now steps into life as Baüzer Vep, following up last year’s debut LP for Florida’s New Fair Deal with this collection of wonky oddball electro-punk and DIY electronics.


Hoping to immerse the listener in a ‘dream-like, slightly nightmarish state’, the Miami-based producer walks us through the tracks on The Gurner
