Dublin, County Dublin
I am originally from south east London (but am half Irish) and have been living in Dublin for 5 years.
Since I've been here I've done music courses at "The Sound Training Centre" and "The Academy of Sound".
I grew up listening to Drum and Bass and Electronica and have no idea what you would call my music other than electronic. Some of it is just to the left so you can tell me what you think it is.
I have been fortunate enough to get radio play on the following stations: Phantom FM, RTE 2FM, RTE 2XM and BBC 6 Music.
You can download some of my tunes for free here:
Quotes from Blogs etc:
Phil Taggart BBC Radio 1/ATL BBC NI: "Previous productions from Gem Dos have been likened to Orbital and 808 State, this however is much darker. Check this out, it's equal parts positivity and negativity but ultimately it's brilliant."
Acid Ted on Embrace the Fear "Embrace The Fear is about right with this oppressive, dank, clanking tune. There are tiny shards of light. But overall, this is for those miserable evenings in bemoaning your fate."
The Point of Everything: "The addictive ‘Sand Hands’ mixed slivers of LCD Soundsystem with repeated vocals that sound as exciting on this end of the summer as they did at the start. "
Barry Gruff: "Broadly speaking this is electronica but it is peppered with techno and drum and bass elements throughout. At times it is deeply atmospheric but always delivered with a real swagger and confidence, especially the clever and classy use of bass."
The Techno Kittens: "Dublin based producer GEM_DOS caught our attention with his atmospheric electronica. His latest track ‘Embrace the Fear’ is melodic and emotional with a haunting and beautiful B&W video."
Acid Ted on Get Found Out: "Get Found Out. This has a lovely bass line married to a spritely melody that mixes with the half-there vocals into something that’s – to me – really quite Orbital. Quite organic."
