Big Up Podcast 47 – Elan

The newest signing to Modeselektor’s imprint Monkeytown Records – Californian beat maker eLan – has impressed us from the get-go with a very elaborate release Bleep Bloop Brrrrmmp (stream below). His on-point future hip hop beats, so often compared to those of Dilla, combined with eLan-style glowing synths immediately speak “talent” and “quality.” They also scream “gimme that!” and “whoa, what the bleep IS this?!” We present you the new installment of Big Up Podcast, mixed by eLan. Expect bleeps, bloops, brrrrmmps, and of course booms!


– Hi, I’m eLan and I thoroughly enjoy… bizarre nostalgia, cooking a good meal, making beats, people watching and being awkward.

– When I’m not in the studio, you can find me... rummaging through thrift shops for ¢.25 records and VHS tapes, riding my bike around the city, and unfortunately at work. I have to pay off these damn student loans somehow…

– If I had to pick just one song to play till the rest of my life, it would be… “The Song That Doesn’t End” of course. Yall remember Lamb Chop? Charlie Horse was that dude.

– I hope my new album will…find its way to the right ears.

– 5 years ago, I was into… beat tapes I probably wasn’t supposed to have. The internet is a wonderful thing when it comes to music.

– Don’t ever try and ask me to… answer this question.

– When I play live, I really hate it when… people come up to me with requests, especially when it’s on some top 40 shit. Bitch this is an MPC not a jukebox! I am not a DJ.

– The best moments in my life are…with any luck they’re still ahead of me.

– If my music was a meal it would be… that really bomb snack from a couple hours previous, that you find yourself thinking about while eating your bland dinner.
