about

Full-length cassette of introvert house from Vancouver producer Elka aka Elan Benaroch (or as "ESB") with far away vibes and a mystic touch to sequencing on “Chants”, the debut album under this moniker.

Elka drifts with polyphonics, grumpy beatboxes, tape echoes, relic rackmounts and analog tape to combine solid drum machine rhythms and emotional atmospheres, finding a woozy calm through classic house construction, detroit and melodic techno cues.

Beneath the sub aquatic pads and harmonic layering there’s a definite wistful/hopeful coloration to “Chants”, especially honing into feelings of travel/motion. Recorded over the last year in his studio on East Hastings, an isolated subterranean alcove where obsolete electronics continue to serve purpose, and provide a perhaps unintentional nostalgia to the package.
