Eli & Fur
Since breaking onto the scene in 2012, Eli & Fur have been perfecting a sound built around infectious melodies and seductive vocal lines that have been mesmerising dance floors from London to Los Angeles. Their production techniques are as on point as ever; drawing from anything House, with an obsession for old school Chicago and touches of Detroit Techno mixed with influences of RnB, Garage and Drum and Bass.
Eli & Fur are known for their captivating sets, which have seen the duo playing alongside the likes of Maceo Plex, Hot Since 82 and Seth Troxler. Appearing on line ups for Chibuku, Vagabundos, Bugged Out, Digital and Ants, Ushuaia, with their Festival highlights including Creamfields, Leeds Festival, Bestival and the ultimate of all festivals, Glastonbury.
The duo’s debut track, ‘You’re So High’ reached the top 3 on Hype Machine and picked up over 2 million plays on youtube. ‘Seeing is Believing’ saw the girls collaborate with Shadow Child and release on Defected, with over half a million plays on Soundcloud. ‘Feel The Fire’ came on Anjunadeep and more recently, ‘Your Eyes’ saw the girls team up with Beatport in the first ever Artist Partnership across their newly launched streaming platform.
2015 has seen the rise and rise of Eli & Fur. Already tipped by Beatport as 2015 Artists to Watch and supported by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 Dance, the girls are set to unleash an impressive collection of productions that include collaborations with the talented Joe Hertz, John Monkman, Moon Boots, No Artificial Colours and second generation techno royalty, Dantiez Saunderson. If that weren’t enough, they were called upon to mix this years’ iconic Space Ibiza compilation alongside Pleasurkraft & Technasia.
Their touring has seen them playing in Ibiza consistently throughout the summer and Festival plays have so far included Corona Sunsets (Ibiza) Lost Village (UK), Secret Garden Party (UK), IMS (Ibiza), Creamfields (UK), Electronica Festival (Turkey), Outside Lands (USA) as well as the forth coming Mad Decent Boat Party in Miami.
The girls plan to roll out the year embarking on a Thelma & Louise inspired tour through the States. Documenting every step of their 13 city tour on Go-Pro, taking planes, train, automobiles…and boats, dropping into radio stations, studio sessions, TV networks, fan hangouts and of course clubs. An unusual way to approach the US market but a life time dream inspired by quite possibly the two coolest chics ever to grace the big screen.
So with all this to come, 2015 is looking like the year Eli & Fur will make a fresh, exciting and impressionable mark on the dance-floor and beyond.
