Lofi Producer G Mills Shares ‘Gates’ EP (Out Now Via Nettwerk Records)
December 3, 2021 BY Nettwerk
G Mills, the jazz-inspired hip hop project of Brooklyn-based producer and drummer Gabe Millman shares Gates, a 5-song lofi/chillhop EP.
Gabe has been deeply engrossed in music from a young age, which led to him formally studying jazz, classical, and audio engineering at Ithaca College. His experience and intuitive musicality shine through creative drum programming/playing, smooth chordal structures, and unique sound design.
About the EP, G Mills had this to say, “I chose the title ‘Gates’ because I lived on Gates Ave in Brooklyn for the majority of the pandemic, which is where I created much of this EP. Besides the obvious reason for the title, I was also finding myself having to get through many mental gates at the time. Especially at the beginning and height of the pandemic, I was overwhelmed with feelings of isolation, anxiety, indecision, and lack of direction. Family, friends, zoom, video games, hikes, working out, cocktails, TV were all things that got me through this time, but a huge one was music, and more specifically, making this EP. It helped free my mind of all the stresses of the world and helped me feel grounded, productive, and fulfilled.”
