After relaunching under his new production name last year, ill.gates (also known as The Phat Conductor), has remixed Si Begg on Noodles, Eprom on Addictech Recordings, Sub Swara on Low Motion Recordings, Mochipet on Daily City Records, co-produced and remixed DJ Dan with Robb G and released a highly acclaimed album ‘Autopirate’ on Muti Music.
ill.gates is a chameleon amongst producers moving effortlessly between genres and well known for his custom Ableton performance & production templates. His production know-how and willingness to collaborate has led to him working with many accomplished musicians and this time around collaborating with Toronto based Techno producer adamduke and the pair deliver an experimental EP that moves from minimalist tech-house through to dubstep and is as twisted as it is dance friendly and very playful while at it.
adamduke has 9 years in Toronto’s electronic community, both on his own and as half of notorious DJ duo ‘The Dukes’, he’s been billed alongside numerous major international acts like Ellen Allien, Tony Rohr, Carl Craig, Matthew Herbert, Kevin Saunderson, Joey Beltram, Bassnector, Afrika Bambaataa and Miss Kitten to name but a few. This is his debut release and we’re sure we’ll be hearing more from him.
