Already when he was a little boy Gabriel Ananda was into music. He had his first serious encounter with music during a fever rush, listening to Classical music which made him notice the relativity of things for the first time. That happened at the age of 8 years. His somewhat involuntary cello instruction did not avail but his passion for music found its ways when he was 16 and played songs of Nirvana on his guitar. However his dream of becoming an international rock star did not come true. But there also was this passion for minimal music à la Steve Reich and the fascination for electronic sounds. Thus he went on his journey to find his vision of music, which he couldn't find for two years until he was privileged to experience a premium DJ-Set by Sven Vaeth in 1995. This was his crucial experience and Gabriel Ananda began experimenting in electronic sounds. Two years later he had his first release on the German Label Hörspielmusik followed by several 12" releases on imprints like Trapez, Utils, Karmarouge, Festplatten and Plong! Refreshingly different from the common Techno mainstream Gabriel Ananda breaks hearing-habits using well dosed deep structured sounds. Connoisseur of the uncommon enjoy his straight and fiddly cool beats. Definitions become useless if Techno, House and Dub merge together like in Gabriel Anandas productions. "Acoustic elements give a personal note to my electronic music".
