The other day I posted a new track from Canadian producer Eekkoo. Elysium is a grinding, dark electronic track with a scaly, slithery bass and a haunting melody.
For a little background info, Eekkoo, who is also a sound engineer, is based in Montreal and was discovered by electronic heavyweight Deadmau5, who went on to sign him to his own label, Mau5trap Records. Elysium is a taste of Eekkoo’s forhtcoming EP, Hell Is Other People.
Now, we’ve got a video to match. Featuring a starkly lit set of backdrops and a simple yet powerful continuous shot of a man walking with headphones, we’re transported to a city of tunnels and bright lights. Until, that is, a lone woman starts walking in the opposite direction. Are they looking for one another, or are they two strangers in the same place?
