Bristol’s Eli Brown makes his debut on Repopulate Mars with four cuts in his ‘Hysteria’ EP this month. With early releases on labels such as Steve Lawler’s VIVa and Skream’s Of Unsound Mind, Eli’s arrival onto the scene has possibly given him a reputation as a rising talent.
Having cut his teeth as a producer within the D&B world, Brown’s no stranger to the studio and this is evident with his take on modern house music.
Nostalgic synth leads, robust drums and a rumbling low-end, ‘Hysteria’ has been designed with the peak- time in mind. ‘Burning’ then generates a bouncy aesthetic with its crunchy percussion and stuttering bassline before moving into the high-octane ‘It’s All About’, which employs a looped vocal, infectious snare rolls and an acid line that slices through the track.
Finally, Eli Brown maintains the release’s powerful momentum with another production titled ‘Play The Game’ to conclude the release.
It’s out 29 September.
