Don’t fake the motherfuckin data. Mike Gao is a producer and music technologist from Los Angeles. His style is futuristic and forward thinking, always attempting to push the conventions of hip hop, the beat scene and bass music to find the next aesthetic while ironically playing with existing idioms and conventions. He is a bonafide audio scientist, creating his own game changing iOS apps and plugins, as well as doing research for Native Instruments. On the record, Mike Gao has been called a genius by some of the top producers in the scene, from Ta-ku to Kaytranada and Mr. Carmack.
