Brimming with offbeat beauty, Elusive’s new album Textures features a unique electronic warmth that is created with an infinity of unusual sounds. Dissected vocals and the crackle of lo-fi static permeate the release with layers of soul, a showcase for Elusive’s artful, abundant and multi-layered approach to production. With over 20 releases in his collection since the ‘90s, Elusive has personified instrumental music culture in California for two decades now. Textures comes at a creative spurt in his career and has a breakthrough sound from beginning to end.

From the producer’s choice, this last year release from Alpha Pup a Los Angeles based label with hundreds of releases have really made my grade of finding that unique off-beat arrangement that I nearly experienced an anxiety lathegicism. But once you started to listen to the quality of vinyl recordings, you will notice there are sight difference between digitalism and analogue format in hybrids. Like the bridge of hydro in the 90’s when the compositions is all about experimental sound and LA beat’s scene is although a bit of an hidden gem. It is still alive and kicking, and very much looking forward to watch the live set of Elusive, and even listening to the dj set somewhere in downtown L.A.. Just keep an eye out for this artist if you are in California or at an ACE Hotel downtown.
