GPU Panic, aka Guillherme Ribiero is an electronic producer and vocalist based in Lisbon, Portugal. It all started with a faulty computer and an error which were stopping him from producing music without random interruptions. The persistence led him to create the music that makes up his first EP.
GPU Panic explores electronic textures in a nostalgic and enigmatic environment where sometimes the voice at the back leads the music and merges with the synthesizers, bass lines and beats.
The first single of the EP, “Tanger” was released in 2016, followed by his second EP “Sand Haze” in 2017, with support from RBMA and a remix for Moullinex’s track “Painting By Numbers”.
By 2018 it was time to establish his live performance, playing shows around Portugal for example on the Red Bull Music stage at Neopop Festival, where he was highlighted by Mixmag “here with piano, vocals and no lightshow for distraction, the Lisbon-based producer and composer (not a DJ, he insists) executes an utterly bewitching live act”. In addition, Deep House Amsterdam commented “opening act, Portugal’s GPU Panic, deserves a very special mention here as well. Shifting between a grand piano and machine fed synths, GPU Panic provided an unexpectedly passionate performance that truly felt as though artist and machine were one”.
