Having emerged from the shadows of Bristol’s fabled drum and bass scene, Eli Brown has rapidly established himself as an artist of real distinction in the House music world. His singularly sinister, twisted records have made an immediate impact, with Repopulate Mars, ViVA Music, Toolroom and more all recognising his raw, sometimes caustic talent. If you’re looking for dance music with character, you’re in the right place.
2019 has proven to be his most prolific year yet, with Eli Brown releasing a flurry of singles and EPs alongside some of the most respected names in dance music. In February he took to Adam Beyer‘s Truesoul to release the two-track “Our Love” EP with Will Clarke. Less than a month later he linked up with legend Sonny Fodera for “Hurt Me”, released via Solotoko. While “Brazil”, a collaboration with Lee Foss and Anabel Englund on Repopulate Mars, was awarded the title of BBC Radio 1 ‘Hottest track in the world’ by Danny Howard.
Showing no signs of taking his foot off the gas, he’s now back with not one, but two bangers. With a production style that fits seamlessly with DFTD’s catalogue of fresh, dancefloor-focussed cuts, his two-track label debut is set out to get pulses racing. Progressive breakdowns, thick descending basslines and slick production generate infectious club appeal on both tracks.
