“…speaker-shaking bass lines and big-time breakbeats that kept the crowd dancing through every element of his ever-evolving set… glitched out hip-hop, cut-up vocals, reggae twists and all the grime you’d ever need or want on a Saturday night in the city.” ~Duke LaRock,

iLL.Gates is a Toronto-based composer, performer and educator. Over the past 15 years, he has established a global fanbase and a reputation as one of the most dynamic electronic music artists around. He regularly tours across North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. Gates has headlined at such festivals as Burning Man, Shambala, the World Electronic Music Festival and the New Orleans Jazz Festival. iLL.Gates has enjoyed a thriving creative partnership with Lorin Bassnectar, including a chart-topping remix of “Maximum” by DJ Vadim that sold so fast on Beatport, the duo were accused of chart-hacking.

His first full-length release, Autopirate (Muti Music, 2008), reached #1 on many esteemed charts; and continues to sell strongly. Many of his contemporaries cite Gates (aka The Phat Conductor) 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 is also hosting an Ableton Course on Monday July 5th – more details at:
