When Modeselektor got introduced to the music of eLan, they immediately fell for his beat-smith mastery, it resulted in him being welcomed to Monkeytown Records and their sister label 50 Weapons. In 2010 he released a split 10" with Falty DL, 'I Can't Breathe' immediately captured the ears of those inclined to the hazy beats of Flying Lotus and the Brainfeeder camp and resulted in his music being described by Bleep as "eLan is a brand new name to most, he makes ultra-slick, mournful Dilla bump sound oh-so easy."
eLan is now dropping his new album 'Next2Last', a double-disc collection of originals by eLan and remixes of his productions from the likes of Modeselektor, Cosmin TRG, Lazer Sword, and more. We took the opportunity to find out more about the man behind the music, his new album and his musical heritage. eLan's mix features tracks from himself as well as Devonwho, Rustie, Shlohmo, How To Dress Well, Jonwayne and many more.
