ELPENTHE is the moniker of producer & musician Elliott Beenk. Originally from a small Iowa farm town, he now resides in Venice, CA and where he continues to collaborate as a producer and songwriter — with current focus on ELPENTHE; his debut electronic-dance artist project.
His debut outing for the fledgling project is ‘Rev-O-Lution’ – a stunning single and a serious statement of intent. ‘Rev-O-Lution’ feels huge and anthemic while being simultaneously open and intimate as it moves through styles and textures, everything held together by a deft ear. The central beat is constructed from samples recorded from the Youth Climate Strike with Greta Thunberg in downtown LA last year. It builds, loops upon loops, with each new layer of groove slotting into place beneath a dazzling blend of warm shimmering synth, luminescent flourishes and woozy haze. Underpinned by dusty beats and deep bass, it quickly swells into a richly melodic, bewitching and irresistible allure. An absolutely stunning cut.
