Mix Of The Day: Elijah Simmons
Last year, a new star rose from the depths of the cosmos (otherwise known as East London) and seared his place in the UK’s dance consciousness. The man we speak of is Elijah Simmons, and since he’s been popping up on line-ups alongside Tale of Us, Mano le Tough, DJ Tennis, Chaim and The Drifter, we thought it about time to put his skills to the test as well.
Having put his name on the map when Blond:ish picked up the mesmeric ‘Otavio’s Dream’ for their Flying Circus compilation, Elijah has kept the intensity up with a string of releases in 2015. Having served up two EPs for Kompakt-affiliated label, KX, the HYDE party starter’s burgeoning back catalogue looks set to swell further in the new year as he lines up a slew of new releases for a number of techno’s hottest labels.
With credentials like these you’d probably guess that Elijah’s set will blend the very best techno has to offer, and you’d be right. Designed to be enjoyed with “hot chocolate, cookies and a comfortable pair of slacks”, you can stream or download the mix below.
