The Local Selection stops off in Galway for it’s 109th episodes, as Harry Bouchier, aka Elliot steps up to our ever growing mix series.
Last week we featured Harry’s brand new alias, plus his debut release under his new ‘Elliot’ guise on INSANE INDUSTRY. The 19 year was previously producing under his own name, but after months of time to think and work on his sound, productions and the future ahead of him, realised a name change and rebrand as ‘Elliot‘ was the next stage in his career.
“I first got the notion to completely rebrand myself at the beginning of the first lockdown as I felt a stigma surrounded my previous alias that I couldn’t escape, and thus the idea for ‘Elliot’ was born“.
Today, we’re delighted to share Elliot’s Local Selection mix with you all, as he delivers a hard hitting and relentless hour of power, showcase the harder style of techno and the new direction he finds himself currently producing. Expect plenty of new material, loopy, wobbly and techno inspired from the golden period. This mix is a certified belter.
Last week we spoke to Elliot about his latest release, check it out.
The idea for my debut EP stylistically was always aimed towards producing a drum heavy compilation of tracks with little synth or lead activity, so that the complete focus of the tracks was the drums.
Track 1. ‘Venus’ touches on the harsher side of things drawing influences from artists like Makornik and Cancel.
Track 2. ‘E46’ on the other hand, draws more from old-school Eric Sneo, Hertz kinds of stuff whilst still staying true to the drum heavy idea behind the EP”.
