Colorado based producer Gila with a 4 track EP for Lex Records.
GILA is an electronic producer from Denver, Colorado. 'Trench Tones’ contains four diverse tracks that showcase his signature, hard-edged production style. His debut album will follow later in the year.
Born Kyle Reid, he was a talented jazz drummer and percussionist until a 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.
