Gokil System is known for coining new phrases at a flick of a wrist; 'hyper-eclecticism' being one of them. Although the map is not the territory, nothing less is true. Ranging from the sounds of shamanistic rituals from the Amazon to the up and up of new-age modernisms; global sounds have never been embedded more specifically and timely than this. Gokil System defetishes DJ-ism and brings audio directly to the recipient. With more than 15 years of hosting, promoting and delivering soundsystem culture in multiple forms to the youth, Gokil System is just but a new moniker for a traditional approach and attitude. Influenced by multi-identities Gokil System is here to uniquely explore Planet Earth's music.
