eLan – Against The Clock
MPC business from Monkeytown producer eLan.
When Modeselektor heard Elan Stouffer’s music, they signed the young Cali talent on the spot. After a split 10” with Falty DL on 50 Weapons, eLan dropped a trilogy of lush future-boogie and hazy hip-hop instrumentals on Monkeytown Records, later compiled on 2011’s Next To Last. A member of Shlomo’s WEDIDIT Collective and a former resident at Critical Beatdown in San Diego, his laidback West Coast sound spins out from Dâm-Funk, Dilla and the Brainfeeder beatsmiths.
FACT TV visited eLan’s Brooklyn apartment to see what he could do in 10 minutes. You can listen to the finished track below. Also, make sure to check out eLan’s Sampling on the MPC classes.
