Theory of Everything

Theory of Everything

BandEDMHip Hop

Texas meets London in Ernest Gonzales's take on IDM, which darts between trip-hop and ambient but is buoyed by strong melodic currents. Though Gonzales knows what to do with the drum machine, his rumbling rhythms never bowl over sweet high-end tones.

Biography

Ernest Gonzales is a "Hyphenated American" aka Hispanic, Chicano, Latino, or Mexican -Whatever you want to call it. He grew up next door to the Alamo, but his Spanish is muy pequito. Gonzales is the only child of an electrician father and a Home Depot customer service rep mom. Latch-key only child = video games, drawing trees, making bow and arrows, too much MTV, and pizza pockets. Somehow in between engineering camps Gonzales decided to go to art school but he has no plans on painting the Virgen de Guadalpe. During that time Gonzales used extra scholarship money to buy his first drum machine. See kids...it does pay off to make good grades. All this leads to music production. As Theory, he has no plans on making any raggaeton beats. So there you have it, Ernest Gonzales, a Hyphenated American making music. Hip Hop, Experimental, Electronic - whatever you want to call it.
