Big up upcoming producer/singer/songwriter/DJ, ELKKA and her new video for ‘Try’.
Combining elements of pop, garage, and electronica with what sounds like samples of the Street Fighter game, the video is equally as complex. It has been directed by Adrian Ardelean and is the first in a trilogy where each EP will be accompanied by an intimate video.
‘Try’, co-produced with Pop Morrison, has been taken from ELKKA’s debut EP, ‘Her’, out now.
“This series of EPs are a lyrical documentary about a pivotal moment in my life. The series follows my experiences of meeting the first girl I ever dated. HER. It was completely intoxicating and for a brief moment it felt like it could have been more than just lust but of course, the drama and chaos she brought came later which you will hear all about in second and third part of the series – THEM and US.’’
Sounds like: Clean Bandit, The xx, Hot Chip, Crystal Fighters, Jamie xx

Australian / German singer songwriter Christa Vi has released the video for the title track from her latest EP, ‘Makeshift Happiness’.
Christa has a casual obsession with origami and paper-craft, mainly because of the concept of creating something beautiful or functional out of something ordinary, and like her hobby, her music is delicately crafted, but this time it is in layers of lush vocals and synths.
The single has been co-produced by Dalston-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew McDonnell (Petite Noir, Suns, Crystal Fighters). Other collaborators for this single include Melbourne- based illustrator and painter Erin Greer, who provided the cover-art, and her video was shot by London-based director Chris Turner / Favourite Colour Black (Editors, GazelleTwin).
The EP was released on 25 September via Christa’s own record label, Tangelo Records.
