Biography


Gino G was born into a world of music. His father, an accomplished composer and guitarist immediately exposed him to a variety of sound. As a child, each week he would receive a new cassette from a new genre of music. At the age of 7, he began to play the piano, saxophone and drums. As a young adult, Gino began to lean towards rock music, and chose the drumset as his primary instrument. Influenced by metal and emo bands such as SlipKnot, Mudvayne and Dashboard Confessional; Gino learned how complex and aggressive rhythms could be used to convey strong emotions.

In 2002, at the age of 15, he played his first live show as the drummer of a metal band called Bleeding Halo. It is around this time that Gino became a fan of electronic musicians such as Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and Autechre. Entranced by their compositions, he began to embrace synthesized music. His journey continued at the now defunct yet legendary Aria Nightclub in Montreal. Gino was inspired by the extended sets by the likes of Danny Howells, Sven Vath and Deep Dish. This is where he learned about the importance of groove and story-telling in electronic music.

Presently Gino has been progressing in his musical journey as an electronic composer and DJ. His current influences include producers such as Maetrik, James Holden, as well as afro-cuban drummer Tito Puente. Gino’s productions range from deep grooving house to dark cavernous Berlin techno. He strives to achieve counterpoint in both melody and rhythm, creating music that will enliven and enrich any dancefloor. Gino’s DJ sets reflect the same flexibility, combining his artistic influences with a sense of pragmatism that is necessary to connect with a crowd of moving bodies.
