EP Boot Camp with ill.Gates!

November 6-11, 2022: Denver, CO


I wish I had EP Boot Camp 20 years ago.

I would have given ANYTHING to go to an event like this.

There’s always been a ton of information out there but, as you know, there really is NO substitute for a live, in person learning experience.

EP Boot Camp will not only provide but actually DEMONSTRATE my incredibly effective methods.

My methods have worked for 243 official ill.Gates songs garnering 57 Million Plays.

My methods have worked for 75 releases on the Producer Dojo record label.

My methods have worked for students like Dr. Fresch, Danny Asadi, Mr Bill, G Jones, Apashe, Minnesota, and even Seal!

You will leave TRANSFORMED by your new knowledge of every single step of the EP process and approach your project with inspiration, confidence and joy like you have never experienced.

From setting the right goals and creating a style, to making music, to doing the graphic design, to promotion and playlisting. This is literally everything in five days.

You’ll learn exactly what works and why it works from someone with an unquestionable track record.

My first EP took years, but now it’s a whole different game. I’ve released 39 originals and remixes so far this year, and there are STILL two more big releases to come in 2022. I’ve had collaborations with underground legends Mr.Bill, OpiuoKJ Sawka, Excision, Destroid, Beats Antique, Mimosa, Amon Tobin, Eskmo, The Dead Kennedys, and Grammy-winning artists Gucci Mane and Alanis Morissette (14 nominations, 8 wins). 

I’ve also been teaching for 20 years, and I’m ready to teach you.

It’s hard to finish your first EP, but it’s not hard when you’ve done a ton. I’ve been a part of the entire EP process for nearly 100 official releases on my record label, Producer Dojo, and many more. I’ve been through the process so many times I know what works and what doesn’t and I’m ready to teach it all to you.

I’ve designed the start to finish, everything you need to know, process to get you across that finish line.

Still don't believe me? I'll prove it to you with free access to one of my top workshop videos. ------->
