Real Name:
Ec8or (pronounced as Ecator, an abbreviation of Eradicator which was originally used by Patric as his tag when he used to do graffiti, and later as musical alias as well) was formed by gabba and chiptune artist Patric Catani, and former Lemonbabies member Gina Vaporjieff D'Orio.

Ec8or as a band project was formed in 1995, any releases Ec8or was involved with before (incl. "AK-78") are solo works of Patric C.

Some tracks released under the Ec8or alias were actually E-De-Cologne tracks, probably supposed for release on Shockwave Recordings. When Patric left the gabba scene they turned up under his new project.

The duo released 3 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 had been in then 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, it was necessary for me to leave that behind."

Ec8or is currently on a permanent hiatus although the duo played a one-off gig in Dresden in 2005, and have recently collaborated as the one off project A*Class. Patric Catani later became known as Candie Hank, whereas Gina still performs in her other band Cobra Killer with former Shizuo vocalist Annika Trost.

EC8OR is a mixed bag at best - I like Patric C. but Gina VD's singing annoys the hell out of me. It's an odd compromise between gabber/breakbeat and punk that doesn't always work.

Most DHR fans will probably enjoy Patric Catani's individual releases more than his EC8OR work with Gina.

Really nice act that sounded like a pissed version of ATR, only more Progressive, more distorted and even more noisily.
I can hardly listen to one of their albums on through, but they kicked ass intransigently and were less populistic than ATR was!
I think the true reason Empire dropped em at DHR was they were selling to less records ... ;)

EC8OR could've easily been "Atari teenage riot's more lowbrow kid sister/brother project" but there was plenty of more ideas. over the years of listening to most of what of Digital Hardcore Recordings had to offer, this band alongside ATR have become a personal favourite, and you can't fault Patric's excellently lo-res programming on most of the tracks. To say both musicians have now moved onto better greener pastures (Catani's work in the puppetmastaz; Gina's "Sailor Songs" album) its often good to go back to EC8OR's older material.
