|Description:||1-speed bike is the electro alter-ego of aidan girt, drummer for the Montreal based bands exhaust and godspeed you black emperor! From its humble beginnings on an ancient 12-bit akai sampler, 1-speed bike progressed towards new and improved resolution on his debut full-length, while maintaining a decidedly punk irreverence and ramshackle aesthetic. First heard on the 3 remixes interspersed throughout the self-titled exhaust record (cst004), 1-speed bike beat manipulations are characterised by live drum phrases that pulse & breathe with organic dynamism, chopped & looped to form the backbone for melodic passages that range from the irreverent to the sublime.|
1-Speed Bike, a.k.a. Bottleskup Flenkenkenmike, is one of Broklyn's favorite friends and co-conspirators. Besides the fact that he's a righteous guy who sticks to his guns (or rather no guns policy) he is also talented, witty, and a ball to be around. He's just about everything you hope a Canadian would be. His real name is Aidan and his real job for the last 7 years has been drumming with the insanely famous for an indie band band GSYBE! While this gig has given him some leverage he does everything in his power to stress the fact that his own project is nothing like the nine-piece band that he is only one piece of.
