CV/Gate is an electronic duo featuring Justin Meli and CHristopher Buhagiar. The project is based on making music in the 'old-school' way. The duo admits that they love old machinery and the raw sounds that they produce using their evergrowing collection of classic drum machines, vintage synthesizers, circuit bent/DIY toys and stomp boxes. Stylewise they do not subscribe any particular genre but their latter-day output reflects a stronger focus on acid techno and dark electro elements.
- CV/Gate - CV/Gate EP (Complex Sound Sagacity (MT))
Review from netlabel : Local Hardware freaks Cv/Gate presents a self titled ep. Their sound is raw, Their techno is dark and totally analogue. With Fog808 and Midi Dub they present their detroit influence with percussive sounds and dubby chords. In Mind Control & Techno Now! they present their rawer and colder Berlinish side with distorted synth lines and Acid basslines.
- CV/Gate - Analogue Summer EP (www.acidhardwave.com (UK))
Review From Netlabel : Do you know what the dark side is?? I don't think so. After hearing this ep you'll feel like you've become a Star Destroyer Commander or maybe even as dark as Darth Vader himself.... Prepare for destruction by analogue acid wave...
CV/Gate has performed live in various local events to date.
The duo's aim is to start a series of local events and showcases under the name of cv to midi, which will involve other Maltese hardware enthusiasts.
