ill.Gates is a bass droppin’, educatin’, oscillator modulatin’ space genius from the future.


ill.Gates is a name known by nearly all producers in the English speaking world. His songs have been in the iTunes Top Ten Electronic Charts several times. DJs play his music every weekend and fans wear their ill.Gates tattoos with pride. His ringtones can be heard on the Windows Phone and rumor has it he is working on a secret project with Disney. At this point I think it’s safe to say ill.Gates is a household name.

When he isn’t composing his own music ill.Gates is teaching the next generation of musicians and providing employment opportunities through Producer Dojo, an organization he founded in 2016 with the goal of ‘launching 1000 music careers’. Producer Dojo uses a martial arts belt system to cultivate discipline in young music producers, provides them an outlet for release on the Dojo record label, and helps them create an online business selling samples, sounds and services.

ill.Gates is known for traveling the globe but has recently moved to Los Angeles in order to build a studio for the Producer Dojo, which opened in 2018.

ill.Gates recommends


"I absolutely love MDrummer for making my own spicy drum breaks and ALSO for injecting some flow into my percussion sequencing. Most of these multisampled drum plugins focus exclusively on the former but the additional tools in MDrummer make it stand head and shoulders above the rest. 11/10 for MDrummer!"


37 plugins included

"The Melda MFeeFXBundle has some of their most useful plugins and has become a STAPLE in my productions ever since. I don’t think there’s a single recent project file on my computer that doesn’t make heavy use of this suite of devices. If you don’t download it right away you might as well just give  up because you’re gonna get left in the dust!"


"My life as a producer is divided into the dark ages before MWaveShaper and the glorious reign that ensued after MWaveShaper. It is mystifying to me that there are not more options for drawing your own transfer curves that are as easy to use and as high fidelity as MWaveShaper. It truly is a godsend and it’s an absolute miracle that it is free! We don’t deserve you Melda!"

MDynamicEq is my favorite EQ ever! The dynamic equalization is so natural and it gives a lot of possibilities including sidechain key and a beautiful saturation, this is a MUST have!
