100 Gecs is an experimental music duo comprised of friends Dylan Brady and Laura Les. Brady, based in L.A., and Laura, based in Chicago, shoot Logic Pro files back and forth to create each of their cra zy songs. Their music is electric, loud, fast-paced, energetic and reminiscent of nightcore with its uniquely auto-tuned and high-pitched sound. Their first EP 100 Gecs was released in 2019, and it featured hits such as “money machine,” “hand crushed by a mallet,” “stupid horse” and “ringtone.” 

100 Gecs’ first live performances were for Brockhampton’s Heaven Belongs to You tour in 2019. After touring with Brockhampton, 100 Gecs headlined six additional shows that year. They released their most recent album 1000 Gecs and The Tree of Clues in July of this year, which featured remixes of their songs from 1000 Gecs.
