The Mask EP by Elléot

Hotly-tipped Manchester artist Elléot debuts on Richy Ahmed’s Four Thirty Two label with The Mask EP.

The Mask EP by Elléot.

A collaboration with Andrey Djackonda, and a remix from Archie Hamilton, seals this prodigious release. With a strong set of releases already behind him, for labels such as Do Not Sleep, Nervous Records, and Sustain, Elléot parades his musical chops for Ahmed's label, which has delivered recent musical dispatches from the likes of Eldon, Jamie Jones & Richy Ahmed, Jansons, and LoveHrtz.

A strong jazz-funk influence is stamped all over "The Mask", as muted horns and an infectiously funky bass build the foundations of this four-to-the-floor house bomb, topped off with a vibey vocal topline! Having built up an impressive career to date via a relentless DJ schedule, a residency at London's popular FUSE parties, and releases on his own Moscow and Moss Co. labels, Archie Hamilton turn in a superb remix of "The Mask". Rolling beats sets the tone for his "Just A Phase" Mix, as epic chord progressions, space-age acid tones, and a groove that Mood II Swing would be proud of, induce a first-class remix from the well-seasoned producer.

A collaboration with Andrey Djackonda (AVOTRE/Conceptual) also bears similar traits, as jazzy keys, a bustling bassline, and brass licks bind together with a syrupy vocal for the uplifting garage house of "Don't Let Me Go", whilst "Follow Me" concludes this assured EP with a jostling party track, resplendent with hand-claps, lively drums, and another contagious and soulful vocal.
