To all the DJs/vinyl collectors/new music mavens/cool kids out there, allow me to introduce you to eLan, a versatile and progressive producer out of southern California. eLan’s sound has evolved extensively since we met about five years ago at UCSD, as he has ventured from a classic vinyl-sampling MPC mashing maestro to an innovative future hip hop beatsmith pioneer. Check out his SoundCloud for a proper introduction.
A brief background on Modeselektor, from the label’s website: “Wildly diverse, infused with exuberance and inspired by a slap of the absurd, Modeselektor’s inarguable grooves seem to emanate from every conceivable musical genre, creating a controlled chaos whose sonic expression elevates the eyebrows and heartbeats of critics and dance floors around the world.” CHEUCH!
eLan even hit us off with this exclusive mash-up featuring his beat partnered with a hip hop classic!
Vinyl-heads in the US can cop “Bleep Bloop Brrrrmmp” at Forced Exposre.
Those more digitally inclined can support eLan through iTunes.
Keep crushin’ it, e!
