What do you get when you combine an electronic music producer, vocalist, ellen o and a hip hop veteran, battle tested lyricist, Smoke Dza? You get a track that’s as feel good as it is intoxicating with “Every Day”Coming off his first collaborative studio album “Don’t Smoke Rock” with producer Pete Rock, Smoke Dza delivers a playfully, romantic verse on ellen o’s new single “Every Day”. “Ellen effortlessly combines electronic and hip hop music. She has a fresh vibe,” says Smoke.
Ellen o the Brooklyn-based producer and vocalist was originally trained as a classical pianist and composer, she now writes with a vintage MPC and Juno-106, crafting tracks. She draws from influences of hip hop, and trap beats surrounded by swirling electronics and voices within deep pools of strange chords, and ominous beds of synthesizers. “Ellen o's unique blend of pop makes her an unstoppable force in the experimental scene,”says Kristi Shinfuko of Magnetic Magazine.
"Another killer tune from ellen o," tweeted Gilles Peterson of BBC radio, when he heard ellen o's most recent single "The Marriage Plot". After achieving success with her first two singles, "Uneven" and "The Marriage Plot", which appear on her forthcoming release, "You/Sonata, ellen o is set to make her Babygrande Records debut on 11/17/17.
