GIL (aka Gil Schneider) is a producer and DJ who goes in deep on his rousing and vigorous set. The Berlin-based artist applies his background in dance and classical composition to his club performance, where a track like ‘Bruxism’ — from the Orchids & Wasps EP, released on Aïsha Devi’s Danse Noir label in 2016 — presents an online take of a kind of perverted power noise that appears in assaults of brutal samples and clobbering beats.
His most recent single “Love is a Towel Over Shifting Sands”, released via Berlin-based Swedish label Country Music, is a sweeping, spirited and experimental trudge through one’s innermost fears and anxieties that ultimately offers relief in catharsis. Meanwhile, GIL’s DJ sets blend a variety of influences. Soaring anthems collides with hard-hitting percussion, while a beatless euphoria journeys through the unchartered waters of sonic ventures, and club classics. They all come in service to a sense of untethered movement and feeling.
