Ellioth

EP / digital

lowriders recordings

A coincidence, a satisfied feeling or being in the now leads to very special moments. Moments I have been looking for to build the story. Stories that are told through harmonies, rhythms, noises and field recordings. Every track has his own theme. Together, they are one; Ellioth EP

Yelleen

EP / cassette /  digital

Lowriders recordings

Yelleen EP consists of 6 tracks. Cribble and Vixen were made in collaboration with Jor Mesin (part of the beatrotateproject). The two tracks are a step further away from the IDM straitjacket but it stays in the touch and feel of the latter. The transparency and openness is what gives it its unique character.

Alphabets Heaven, Julien Mier and Strand are on the remix duties for Yelleen.

Split EP with Astroposer.

“Ard Bit takes rolling bassdriven dubstep into dark and abstract dimensions. AstroPoser lightens things up and shows how glitch, hiphop, dubstep and idm should sound when you put em all together”

Limited to 300 handnumbered copies, with very special hand-made
(silkscreen printed) artwork.

Symbolic Interaction

this is my debut album and it has received remarkable attention

“Spanon is a consistent slab of music that is rewarding and demands repeat listens”[Igloo Magazine]

“Designed as a brilliant compromise between dubstep and IDM, Spanon is an album that will delight the aesthetes of the genre.”  [Chroniques Electroniques]

In this mix I take you to a intriguing and dynamic world of electronics, beats, ambient, jazz, noise and sound collages. With every mixtape I ask myself the question: what story do I want to tell? But as a result, I easily lose myself in detail. For this mix I’ve tried to focus on diversity and atmosphere to keep it office-proof, whatever that means. The story unfolds itself, enjoy!
