Elkka has shared details of new EP 'Every Body Is Welcome'.
The DJ and producer co-founded the DIY art collective femme culture, one of the most inspiring forces in London's underground club culture.
New EP 'Every Body Is Welcome' is a loving testament to those underground communities, blurring styles and eras to forge something distinct and empowered.
The full EP lands next month, with Elkka sharing the Acid-leaning title cut, complete with rolling keyboard line and some neat squelching effects.
It's a system jacker, too - the snare rolls combine to produce something driving, a gently euphoric.
Of the EP itself, she comments...
“Arriving in London in my early 20s I was a completely different person in every possible way and discovering club culture, the rave scene and queer spaces allowed me to explore myself fully as a woman and a queer person. For me, the dance floor has been a place where I have felt the most liberated, the most myself, unified with friends and strangers by the music and moment we are sharing.”
“This EP is a celebration of those moments, of the dance floor, of dance music that has inspired me creatively and personally. 'Every Body Is Welcome' symbolises what I hope the dance floor to be - a music utopia or haven, somewhere for everyone to feel safe to express themselves, to find themselves, to be whoever they want to be and feel part of a community of acceptance and tolerance. Idealistic? Yes but I think art should be a space to express idealism and where we hope to be.”
Tune in now.
'Every Body Is Welcome' will be released on November 22nd.
