Gappeq was born in 1979 in his homeland of the Czech Republic.
At the age of 17 he started to explore the realm of making electronic music, whether it is DnB, Breakbreat, Trance, Ambient, or Dub, from which he started to learn how to play the keyboard. By 1999 he had joined the band SM Lomoz as a keyboardist, and finally went onto starting to write psytrance by 2001.
In 2002 he released his first promotional album 'Vox Antipopuli', which was then followed up the same year producing on the Australian Psychedelic Trance label Sundance Records on their compilation 'Sundaze'. In 2004 another release on Ketuh Records that was welcomed with high acclaim, and received many shining reviews, a result of his unique musical styling combined with his top production techniques. From this point he went onto making sounds and music for TV advertisements, independent movies, and websites.
In 2005 he left the Czech Republic and his band as he moved to Sydney to study Audio Engineering in Sydney which he completed in 2006. In this time and right through till 2006 he continued releasing tracks on different lables and his sound developed a progressively harder and darker edge. This year he has already released a track on the compilation 'Meaning of Life' and another track is due to be out soon on Illuminati Records. He draws inspiration for what he writes from the music he listens to which includes the dark psychedelic Russian sound, World music, Dub, DnB, Experimental Metal, Breakcore and all extreme music (such as Venetian Snares, Noisia, Neurosis).
His album is strongly inspired by mythological characters, fantasy stories and religious themes and has very tribal atmospheres woven with twisted sounds, dark atmospheric textures and imaginative melodies. His musical background allows him to use more complicated musical forms and unusual tempo signatures. Loose yourself in a theatrical world of beauty, mystery, nightmares and power. This album takes us along on a trip to the twilight zone in-between darkness and dawn, to forgotten cities and distant, barely remembered lands, where ancient rituals meet pounding metallic poly-rhythms emanating from the underground.
