Biography

EC8OR is a two person band, consisting of Patric Catani and Gina V. D’Orio

Already both involved with Alec Empire’s Digital Hardcore Recordings, Patric Catani and Gina V. D’Orio formed EC8OR (prononuced as Ecator, but is actually is a contraction of Eradicator) in 1995. The music was in the same vein of Atari Teenage Riot’s style of early Breakcore and hardcore techno with a punk edge, which led to EC8OR being overlooked by fans of digital hardcore recordings, but EC8OR employed more low-res ideas as the first album was entirely composed on Amiga 500 and with a microphone.

EC8OR gained considerable attention in North America in 1997, when the Beastie Boys’ pet-label Grand Royal Records released “All Of Us Can Be Rich…”, a collection of earlier material on Digital Hardcore Recordings. This led to features and press on the band in Rolling Stone and Alternative Press.

The duo released 5 albums from 1995-1999 and have continued to record after the great DHR implosion of the millennium, and still collaborate often, although Patric and Gina are no longer signed to digital hardcore recordings. Patric would later display his dislike of the state the label is currently in, as he posed in a picture with a digital hardcore hooded top lying in a coffin and said in an interview “The fact that all the bands surrounding Atari Teenage Riot just got used for their sellout idea–to have a whole “movement” and “followers”–led to psychological warfare which some people didn’t survive. There was no trust anymore at some point and no communication.”

    EC8OR will always be a part of me! I made a video to Gimme Nyquil All Night Long as part of my highschool multimedia course years ago that I'm proud of for the time...

    The late 90s Digital Hardcore scene felt like the second coming of punk rock for me. Only years later did breakcore get any recognition... at the time people treated you like a retard for liking this, just like when punk rock first came out. I still have a bunch of classic DHR stuff on vinyl, including EC8OR's "All of Us Can Be Rich" ;D
