- Dylan, ill.GATES
His first full-length release, Autopirate (Muti Music, 2008) charted and continues to sell strongly. His groundbreaking triple album, The ill.Methodology and accompanying online course are highly received. Gates was recently selected as one of the Next 100 by URB Magazine.
Many of his contemporaries cite ill.Gates as a key artistic influence and inspiration in their music. While on tour, Gates frequently teaches workshops to grateful and attentive audiences, in which he shares his highly effective approach to producing quality finished music as well as insights into the mentality and strategies necessary to succeed in the music business.
ill.Gates appears on: Muti Music, Amorphous Music/Child’s Play/Om Records, Addictech, Noodles, Innerflight, Low Motion, Made In Glitch, Tube10 & Chi & Recordings.
“ill.Gates and I have known each other for a decade and I have written music & collaborated with him since we first met. He helped me convert to Ableton Live, which was the most dramatic factor in my musical progression. I’m not too sure about his wacky hairstyle though… ”
“ill.Gates really manages to make music making FUN. I had a great time playing with the sound packs and it was cool to watch him work on the Destroid remix when we were on the tour bus together. 10/10 would recommend."
“Blown away by Dylan’s knowledge of production and Ableton. He stayed at my house for a few days after Shambhala and RAINED knowledge on me in Ableton that I didn’t know before. Wish we could do it again so I could absorb some more of that rain. Love u Dylan!!!”
“He’s an engaging speaker and performer, constantly on the cutting-edge. He’s got a huge heart and legitimately rejoices in the success of his students. Learn from him, take his courses, use his packs and tools in your music. Much love to you all.”
“In the few years that I’ve known Dylan, he’s always had a very special way of philosophizing music production in a manner that inspires me a lot and allows me to easily think outside the box.”
