Trench Tones (Ltd Ed 12in Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
GILA is an electronic producer from Denver, Colorado. His new ‘Trench Tones’ EP, containing four tracks showcasing the diversity of his sound, will drop in June, with his debut album to follow later in the year. His signature, hard-edged productions should appeal to fans of Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Hudson Mohawke, Jacques Greene, Lunice, Telefon Tel Aviv & Suicideyear.
Born Kyle Reid, he was a talented jazz drummer and percussionist until diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis forced him to give up his sticks at age 17. Turning to his laptop, he channelled his frustrated musicality into beat making.
GILA, (pronounced hee-la) is named for the gila monster, the only venomous lizard native to the United States. Often slow, full of texture, and deadly, the gila monster possesses many of the same qualities in GILA's music.
2015 found him contributing to XL Recordings’ Chapter VI compilation, which also featured tracks from Kaytranada, Novelist and Mumdance. This was followed by XL releasing his debut solo EP ‘Genkidama’ in 2016.
Now signed to London’s Lex Records, GILA continues to grow and expand his repertoire.
