Gil Aguilar / Boise, Idaho
Treasured Grooves (Label Owner / A & R)
Now calling Boise his home Gil Aguilar is originally from San Jose, California. Gil Aguilar has been djing for over 19 years and has been actively playing out in Idaho since 2002. . Having held residencies in numerous nightclubs in Boise, has allowed Gil to better connect with dance floors on a more personable and intimate level. This exposure has helped to expose house music to a local demographic outside of the local scene. Through this exposure Gil has created his take on house music which he likes to call "Bodo Soul." This take on house music fuses disco, deep house, tribal, and jacking funk in a manner that pays tribute to those that have come before him. His west coast upbringings and influence can be heard in his sets that focus on long intricate blends which he likes to call “mixing from distances” with little use of effects.
Gil is the owner of Idaho's only label dedicated to underground house music "Treasured Grooves." It is no surprise that the music with the smallest voice is making the most noise from the gem state through its releases that has artists from countries like Norway, France, Italy, Mexico, and Bulgaria.
Treasured Grooves also throws underground house events that has seen Boise visited by world renown Dj’s and producers such as Doc Martin (Sublevel – Los Angeles) , Hector Moralez (The Factory – Paris, France ) , and Arturo Garces (Beat Bum Music – San Jose, Ca.) to name a few.
