TGMS Future Stars #23: Eliahh
Up next in our Future Stars series is Berlin-based talent Eliahh. We are happy to have on board!
Grown up in Thuringia (Germany) next to the legendary club Muna where he struck his musical roots. His often long sets tell a story which are characterized by impulsive techno to melodious indie sound. His sound tends to be cold and mechanical yet somehow retains an element of warmth, perhaps even soul, if you will. The main thing here is that it moves you.
He played in several clubs that are not the least to mention: Sisyphos, Arena Club, Watergate, Ipse, Ritter Butzke, Katerholzig, Katerblau, Waagenbau, Abrakadabra, Melt!, White Park New Riga Bay and many more.
But more about Eliahh in the Q&A below.
Where are you from?
Originally I’m from the countryside, a town between the two cities Jena and Gera, but chose Berlin as my home five years ago. Thanks to Muna Club in Bad Klosterlausnitz the area around my hometown is shaped by electronic music, not least through local DJs like Mathias Kaden, Marcus Meinhard or Robag Whrume.
What do you find inspirational about where you are living?
Berlin offers a lot. I live close to Mauerpark where a big flea market with live music performances takes place every Sunday. Those artists and street musicians electrify people with their passion and that’s what inspires me a lot. You can find influences everywhere as long as you’re attentive enough to notice them. For example, if you stop
concentrating on your smartphone for a minute. 😉
Where do you see ‘Eliahh’ in 5 years from now?
I stopped asking myself that question. In the end, everything is always different than originally planned. I always follow my passions and try to develop myself in all areas, in private life as well as in terms of my career.
How would you describe your sound and style?
Of all questions asked this is always my favourite. From my point of view sound and style can differ from party to party, areas and playtimes. If I had to describe my style I’d characterise it as house with strong techno undertones and some experimental moments.
I like to play with different genres, for example, I have a thing for Indie music and always try to add some Indie elements to my sound. But basically, I always trust my feelings and intuition when playing in front of a crowd. For me, the most important thing is to make people happy with my music and put a smile on their faces.
What can we expect from your mix?
I tried to create a balanced mixture of calm and smooth podcast sounds with energising club set moments. I hope I succeeded well enough to transport those feelings.
What is your absolute favourite track of the moment?
