Initiated into electronic music nearly a decade ago, his journey began with youthful dabblings on GarageBand, which evolved into a deeper exploration of the extensive emotional and stylistic terrain of the genre. His forthcoming ‘You’ll Keep Going’ EP intertwines deep house with leftfield influences, producing a distinct blend of emotional melodies and compelling grooves.
Eloi combines a great expertise in the art of sampling with a unique approach to sound creation, employing instruments such as MS-20 mini and JU-06, and exploiting guitar pedals and a flea-market tape recorder, resulting in a distinctive yet well-defined lo-fi sound.
His influences range from classic house artists such as Paul Johnson to modern artists such as Saine as well as funk and hip-hop culture. He has several self-productions to his credit and a vinyl release on the fine white Ltd, W/Lbl (with a second EP planned on this label for 2024). Delicately balancing his love of climbing and his intimate dance with synths and sounds, Eloi interweaves his multi-faceted life and inspirations, evoking evocative electronic tales from the heart of Paris.
