DIY

Featuring a star-studded list of names from Charli XCX, to Dorian Electra, to Injury Reserve, to Fall Out Boy, the 19-track remix record has elements of bubblegum-pop, screamo, rock, pop, hip hop and pretty much every genre you can think of, creating an album that is a masterpiece in its madness.

NME
By spotlighting upcoming artists alongside established names, 100 Gecs give an IRL boost to their ever-expanding community of internet collaborators on ‘1000 Gecs & the Tree of Clues’ while providing an exhilarating snapshot of pop’s alternative future.

The Line of Best Fit
It feels difficult to give this album a coherent discussion. This is some of the most futuristic and far removed from mainstream music being made at the moment.

PopMatters

The album is insightful, moving, and points the way to new artists and their experimental music.

Pitchfork
On this guest-crowded remix album, the duo continues its wild, swerving path through memes, genres, and decades, making some of its originals sound like demos in the process.

Exclaim!

Though their music can be playful and funny, 100 gecs are very much not a joke. 1000 gecs & the Tree of Clues makes it clear that Brady and Les know exactly what they're doing and that they've got an army of highly inventive and creative supporters standing with them.

The Needle Drop

Tree of Clues is an often wonderful companion piece to the original 1000 gecs.

It's a little bit ridiculous but genuinely exciting in its strangeness, much like 100 Gecs themselves.

I’ve come to the realization that 100gecs is one of those rare acts that are both overhyped and underrated at the same time.

Which side are you on?

100 Gecs are considered one of the best artists of recent history, writing some of the most influential and intellectual music of the past century. They have singlehandedly restarted the craze of music and brought the entire world together with their insightful lyricism.

With their major debut success with 1000 Gecs last year, receiving hundreds of awards and still receiving praise to this day, Gecs return with their long awaited remix album, an album awaited by millions, an album that would ... read more

Gec Get Got.

Usually I don't look deeply into remix albums. And by usually, I mean I never look deep into remix albums. And why should I? What nearly every remix record I've ever listened to has never wowed me or blown me away in any decent way. Usually it's just the artists friends or label mates doing them a solid to remake these tracks in a way that just suits their style, and doesn't really make for all of that a compelling listen half the time. Hence, I let the artists have their fun, but ... read more

This is a big step down from the original material in a lot of ways. When going into this album, knowing what a good remix album is like helps a lot. One of my all time favorite albums is a remix album that does the material so much justice, that I didn’t even know it was a remix album until many years later. Something that added to the original vision, or even deconstructed it entirely for a whole new purpose. In a way that is almost conceptual. That being said, I didn’t have that ... read more
