ELWD presents his new album THIS PLACE - an instrumental voyage that fuses live performances with raw samples to build a whole new foundation that is cohesive, yet abstract and elusive at the same time.
In his own words: “THIS PLACE is a journey really, when I started creating it I didn’t know where I was really going but the more I made, the more I started to understand. I think everyone has a certain place they want to eventually get to and hopefully this album might help you get there.”
Northern born, London based multi-instrumentalist and producer Tyler Ellwood uses a signature sample style blended with live instrumentation and never leans too much to one conventional style. Ellwood likes to push the boundaries with each project, taking the listener on a journey from start to finish. In this modern world of infinite scrolling, playlists and diminishing attention spans, this record is the antithesis - ELWDs’ intention is that it’s played in its entirety from start to finish. This is for maximum gratification whilst being in the moment and following the album's narrative.
Drawing inspiration from hip hop, jazz, the dreamy drift of ambient music & electronic, and yet eschewing conventionality and allegiance to any one genre, ELWD’s output weaves effortlessly, laying down lo-fi soundscapes and drifting fluently, across numerous tracks and different moods.
Step into THIS PLACE.
