One of the coolest artists you could possibly meet will greet a few lucky fans at Imagine Music Festival
ill.Gates is an amazing producer, DJ, technologic innovator, and teacher. He teaches classes in Ableton (ill.Methodology Workshop), has made the templates top-tier artists like Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, and Beats Antique use to compose their music, designs the art to VJ his music, and always has live elements to his shows. Lately, he's turned his technologic genius onto creating his own production modular.
A seasoned veteran to Imagine Music Festival, fans look forward to seeing his name reappear on the lineup year after year. This year should bring a super interesting set full of new music as he prepares not only for IMF, but to also destroy Bassnectar's Bass Center.
Even if you have no interest in becoming a producer yourself, the ill.Methodology lecture still has so much to offer a music lover or general creative-type. It’s reminiscent of a TED Talk on inciting creativity within yourself and balancing artistic work flow. If you like music and hearing intelligent people deliver riveting, contagious ideas, you really must watch Chapter 1. You will hear something that resonates within you. You will be inspired in some way.
ill.Gates knows A LOT about making music. Perhaps the best thing about him is that he is willing to educate anyone wanting to learn or improve their producer/DJ skills. Knowledge like this available for free or a nominal fee is a serious gift. Definitely check out ProducerDJ.com and support one of electronic music's best producers.
