Elfenbergs newest release on Stil vor Talent: “Continents II”. Named after the second-highest mountain in the Kilimanjaro massif, “Mawenzi” is a high altitude, percussion-driven track. Rhythmic and uplifting with lush vocals, this tune will take you on a multi-layered tribal journey. The sounds of the jungle hit the dance floor in the multi-layered, atmospheric “Rhythm in Between”. Abstracted Afro-centric beats raise the vibe, leading this energetic track forward.
Like its namesake, the island of Saõ Tome, this mysterious track traverses the boundaries of night-time with suspenseful drum lines. “Sao Tome” is a deep, spacious, synth-driven expedition into far-flung realms. Take yourself to new heights with the vibrant “Seven Summits”. Rich layers of percussion-based sound combined with groovy licks and a dash of the Orient make this a versatile track for both day and night. Always organic, ever rhythmic, this diverse EP transcends borders to offer a truly global sound. A must-listen for wanderlusting souls who have a penchant for audio-phonic adventures.
trndmsk: What inspired you to produce the EP?
Elfenberg: Life on earth in general, we’ve always been fascinated about other cultures and that’s something we almost always express through our music.
Where did you record it? And how?
We recorded it at home, like most of our stuff, it’s a bit tricky to create stuff on the road only using a small laptop even though that’s when the inspiration is at its peak.
How did you get in contact with the record label?
This is our third EP on Stil vor Talent, and being a part of the Stil Vor Talent family now for almost 2 years we felt that this EP definitely would suit best with them.
What’s up next after the release? Are you working on any other projects?
We have a couple of remixes coming out in the near future as well as original tracks we’re working very hard on. We’re also about to launch our own label “Trampoliner” in the next couple of months, so it’s safe to say that we’re busy at the moment.
