We’re excited to welcome the wonderful Willem Gator (aka Giuseppe Musmeci) to the Hidden Shoal family. Willem Gator creates a unique blend of downtempo beats, fat basslines and a multitude of oriental and orchestral instruments. Musmeci is a self-taught composer, guitarist, electronic musician and member of the Italian post-rock outfit HC-B. Musmeci’s rich background in electronic music production and keen sense of texture sees him creating highly distinctive music under his Willem Gator moniker: “My music is photography of a time, of the people I met and the emotion they gave to me.” Willem Gator has performed throughout Europe, sharing the stage with musicians such as FM Einhet (Einsturzende Neubauten), Flying Luttenbachers, Unsane, DJ Spooky, Pansonic, Nobokazu Takemura, U-Cef, Battles and Art Brut.
Two Willem Gator albums have now been added to the Hidden Shoal catalogue, Touch Me and I Will Save You (2008) and Hong Kong Express (2011). All songs are available for licensing for film, tv, web, games, compilations and more. Stream the albums here and contact us if you’d like to know more.
