Anonymity has slowly but surely become a more popular route by producers aiming to gather a bit of buzz. In the case of Geist, it’s working. Since the release of “I Need Ya,” a techno-rooted, big room underground style collaboration with Schumi, curious ears have been awaiting their return. With “Hey Hey,” the duo kicks of the first of five releases making up the #EXPECTCOLOR EP. The achieved sound is a bit more lighthearted and dancey than their first release, offering a larger sound spectrum to their mysterious project. Grab the free download and stay tuned for the rest of their debut EP.
