Patrick Gil started with a 4 track recorder and acoustic guitar, writing songs in Palos Verdes, CA. When he moved to a pc and cakewalk, it was only natural to take advantage of the digital tools; weird guitar layers, cut up vocals, delay tricks.
When he moved to Santa Cruz, he played in a rock band, but it wasn't long until he was getting on his knees, playing with infinity delays, vocals through the pedals, doing long ambient sections. The time had come to make the sound and effects the priority.
The deeper he got into programming synths and playing effects, the more he yearned for something different; far out sounds, thicker bass, rhythmic samples. The sound and feel of techno had the driving energy that reeled him in. Incidentally, the more he produced, the more he found himself going out to parties, getting lost in the music. It was long until he was mixing tracks and cutting his songs into loops. He now performs live sets of his own material and does dj sets around the Bay Area, sharing his love for hypnotic grooves and warm bass.
