“New age techno meets the eargasmic voice that is GiBBZ!” – The Untz
“‘Again and Again’ features the Marvin Gaye-esque talents of Gibbz, all while showing us how he’s so much more than an incredible voice.” – Dance Music Now
“Gibbz simplifies the melody while his airy vocals caress and swoon through the beat.” – Earmilk
“The brainchild of Mike Gibney, GiBBZ brings a smattering of sex, disco, electro-pop, and a confidence that can only be cultivated when someone finds exactly what he should be doing in this universe.” – White Raver Rafting
GiBBZ makes his world debut on Gramatik‘s Lowtemp label with his very own solo EP, titled “Who Gibbz A F#@$”. The heady EP reflects his eccentric personality inside and out and results in a strong cocktail full of charming and yet seductive lyrics that would make any girls pants wind up on the floor.
In a time and place where electronic music is thinning out with a lack of diversity, the multi-talented artist will certainly inspire some extreme reactions with this rollercoaster ride of relentlessly addictive electrofied disco-pop synths seasoned with hooks that will become your pre-game anthem in no time.
With lyrical content ranging from the woes of the road to banging in public bathrooms, GiBBZ holds it down as a singer, songwriter and producer on the funky four track EP. The lead single Again and Again reached over 180K plays on Soundcloud since its release last month.
“The entire record has come out of having fun” says GiBBZ, “99% of all life on earth has 3 responsibilities. Eat, live, f#@$. Forget all the other bulls**t. Eat like a king, Live every day like its your last, and F#@$ like a boss.”
“Who Gibbz A F#@$” continues to sexually seduce our eardrums with his hedonistic falsetto on tracks like Show You and Do It For You, while Crafty is a vocal-less production which Gibbz says was created as “an attempt to flex my sound design muscles without having to use my voice or a lyric to make it catchy.” With that being said, don’t let the EP title fool you. We’re guarantee you’ll be “gibbing” a f**k about Gibbz as soon as you press play.
This Spring both Gramatik and GiBBZ will debut their first ever Gibbzmatik performance @ SRB Brooklyn on March 20th along with a US and European Spring Tour; kicking off at Ultra Music Festival on Saturday, March 29th.

Upon receiving a degree from The Berklee School of Music, the singer, songwrtier and producer launched his GiBBZ alter ego following his experience working in and out of the studio for such artists as Soulive, Lettuce, Talib Kweli, Pharaoh Monch, Consequence, among others.
GiBBZ jokes how he got his start explaining: “After 4 years of working in a professional music environment as an engineer, I realized being an engineer is literally a thankless, miserable existence. Soon after I met members of what is now the Lowtemp label, including Gramatik and Exmag, who convinced me that it’s okay to drink copious amounts of alcohol and make everyone within a 30 foot radius feel uncomfortable. And out of this drunken, obnoxious, perverted, glutinous, offensive mess of a man, GiBBZ was born.”
