Gasp Bio
“Gasp a.k.a Eden Lee Burns is a freshly 18-year-old producer living in Dunedin who is quickly making a name for himself throughout the country with his self-described ‘weird house’ music.
Gasp is only recently old enough to enter a club but has been playing alongside some of the most notable producers to come to New Zealand. He only began releasing his tracks via his Soundcloud account last year, however has already had praise from some of the most influential publications in the world.

Gasp began playing the drums at the age of six. He played in a number of bands before his musical taste changed at around 12 years old. He became really interested in electronic music and fascinated about how this genre of music was made. He taught himself to play instruments from watching how-to videos on Youtube.
With his new found passion for electronic music, Gasp began producing Hip-Hop beats for rappers such asYoung Tapz. After creating beats for others for a period of time, he discovered Australian artist Flume and French duo Justice’s music. These artists were only producing electronic music but were growing as large a fan base as notable rappers. This inspired him to began producing his own tracks that could stand alone under the moniker of Gasp.

Gasp was born in Dunedin then spent much of his life in Christchurch before returning south with his family last year. He spent a period of time last year at Mainz in Christchurch, however found it didn’t fit his creative needs so again returned to Dunedin to lock himself in his bedroom and make music.
Some of his successes to date are being played on BBC Radio 1 by Canadian producer B.Traits, London-basedRinse FM, Los Angeles-based Soulection Radio. He said he would send the radio stations links on Soundcloud and would hope they played his tracks. Other successes worth mentioning are an outstanding review inMixmag, one of largest magazines in electronic music which gave his track ‘Lagoons’ an 8 out of 10, also an article on the infamous Vice Magazine’s website. He is constantly putting himself out there, emailing and making contact with influential people, blogs, radio stations or magazines that he wishes to be featured by. Then it is a matter of hoping they follow through with a response.

Gasp’s first show was opening for Australian artist What So Not’s DJ set at the Glenroy Auditorium in Dunedin although there were only a handful of people watching this was the young producer’s first opportunity to play on a professional sound set-up. The organisers of Rhythm and Alps must’ve seen or heard something in him because they booked Gasp to play at the 2-day outdoor festival before he had ever played a live show. This was all about a year ago now. He has played with names like Flume, Katraynada and soon to be alongside Chali 2Naof Jurassic 5 when he plays in Dunedin later this month.

Gasp is now regularly playing shows in each of New Zealand’s main centres and more excitingly has been booked to play at the country’s premiere New Year’s festival Rhythm and Vines at Waiohika Estate, Gisborne. A pretty fine effort for someone who still won’t be old enough to buy themselves a beer to see in the New Year. This driven producer says he has achieved all the goals he set for the year, and Rhythm and Vines was all part of his vision. Applying for and gaining Making Tracks funding from NZ On Air that will allow him to produce a high-quality music video is next on Gasp’s to-do list. .” – Insiders Dunedin
