The Acolyte, as well as Mitosis[1], is an alias of Australian happy hardcore producer Sam Gonzalez. Mr. Gonzalez announced on August 11th, 2006 that he was going to 'kill The Acolyte name' but as of yet has not officially done so.[2]


BiographyEdit

Sam Gonzalez grew up in a christian influenced home that did not introduce hardcore music on its own. After hearing an example of the genre on the radio, Sam was hooked, "I’ve always love electronic music since I first heard it."[3] Now 22,[3] Gonzalez owns his own production company, CommandoBot Studios.[4]

Primarily known exclusively on the internet, The Acolyte has had songs played and hosted on several websites including In The Mix, IMO Records and Happy Hardcore. He has also had dealings with over 10 record companies including the creation of Executive Records where a personal biography on him exists[5]. Multiple albums, mostly consisting of only a few tracks, have been produced and can be seen at discogs.com under Sam Gonzalez's profile.

Most notable of The Acolyte's works are the two songs Akira Yamaoka’s - Love Me Do (The Acolyte’s Remix)[6] and Treble Bass Attitude which featured on Konami's DDR Ultramix 3 and DDR Universe for the Xbox 360 (used in the E3 trailer), respectively.

ResourcesEdit

  1. Happy Hardcore News on (20/07/2005). More proof through 'ryg0r's post (Sam's forum name) on (07/18/2005). Also notice the date in which ryg0r joined Happy Hardcore, it dates back to 2002 and thus is an identifier to how long he has been producing
  2. Sam Gonzalez's blog post regarding the end of The Acolyte's name.
  3. 3.0 3.1 nuenergy interview with Sam Gonzalez regarding his musical history and containing information on his age - 21 years old on the day of 17/08/05. Being that it was over one year ago, Sam is now at least 22 years old.
  4. Sam Gonzalez's blog post regarding the existence of CommandoBot Studios and the artists it has worked with. Although this claim seems to be true, no physical studio has been proven to exist; especially while Gonzalez has used the "SAE College in Sydney"'s facilities, as noted here.
  5. Executive Records Artist biography on The Acolyte.
  6. Konami's official information regarding Love Me Do.
  7. *This page on Happyhardcore lists Cypherpunk as created by Mitosis whereas the commandobot.com discography lists it under The Acolyte.
  8. *Discogs.com lists the Kevin Energy Remix as existing; although the official discogrophy does not list the "(Kevin Energy Remix)". However, both titles are in reference to the same song under the Dusk Til Dawn label; assuming the official discogrophy (being "official") is 100% correct, then the Kevin Energy Remix suffix is an identifier. Also on Juno.co.uk The Album "Heal My Soul" contains two different versions of the song, original mix and Kevin Energy Remix, under the Dusk to Dawn UK label (UK has never been specified in the official Acolyte discography). The Kevin Energy Remix is thus a remix of The Acolyte by Kevin Energy and should not be listed on this page.
  9. ush.net with release information and clips dating back to 2005. Juno.co.uk also lists Shanty as a partner on the "Party People" track of the album of the same name.
