Fruit For Ears is curated by Ralph Echter formerly known as DJ Gentle. I was active in the music industry from 1991 until 2007. In that period I've co-produced music under the monikers Fortress (Thramce Records) and Paragon (Evidance Recordings). As a DJ, I've founded a DJ collective (Shifting Gears Collective) and played alongside and did artist management (Multiarea) in Holland for artists such as Ian Simmonds aka Juryman (!K7), Ben Mono (Compost), Paul Murphy (AfroArt), Capitol A (Sonar Kollektiv), Darcosan (Vienna Scientist Recordings), Biological (EC Records), C.O.N.E (Footsteppa) and Dogdaze (now much better known as 2562 / A Made Up Sound). I've organized and hosted the Somethin' Else parties in Rotterdam and partnered with many organizations to promote progressive electronic music in Holland.
After a break of 5 years, FFE will be my new music project and I will launch in 2014 a full website dedicated to electronic music.
