about

Gast’s debut CD showcases the saxophonist’s imaginative and instrumental range on a collection of densely-layered, insanely catchy,
original compositions.

If Maxfield Gast means the title of his debut CD literally, then he’s certainly crafted a meal that goes down easy. Eat Your Beats is a ten-course buffet bursting with flavor, lacing the familiar comfort food of infectious grooves and bright melodies with the exotic spice of layered sounds and unexpected effects.

A blend of instrumental hip-hop, seductive funk, and playful drum & bass, Eat Your Beats casts a winking eye back at ‘90s electronica while refracting through a decidedly modern lens. On the CD cover, snaking tendrils emerge from Gast’s sax, eventually taking on a variety of brilliant hues and bursting with images culled from his creative environment. It would be hard to find a better description for the music contained within, which seems to erupt in flowing currents of vibrant color.
