Part of the All Ears takeover
Israel’s electronic music hub Tel Aviv seems to be a breeding ground of talent in the underground dance music scene, and Mor Elian is one of its more recent births. Now internationally recognised, joining the likes of Red Axes and Moscoman, Mor Elian has developed vastly over the last decade.
Having begun DJing following a move to LA in 2005, her style has continued to develop, making a steady journey from a looser set of genres to more coherent dancefloor power. This love for the dancefloor didn’t come out of nowhere, however, it’s a part of a Tel Aviv citizen’s cultural up-bringing, where partying at electronic music events from their teens is somewhat the norm. Now, Mor Elian is a regular DJ in LA’s house and techno underground, and also hosts a weekly radio show on Dublab.
It’s only in recent years however that Mor Elian has made her mark as a producer, and it’s a pretty prominent mark at that. Her first 12″ via Trus’me’s Prime Numbers in 2015 was a functional and groovy house banger, and found itself remixed by none other than Detroit’s OB Ignitt. A year later and she’s on one of modern house music’s biggest labels, Hypercolour, being remixed by Joey Anderson and Markus Suckut. It’s no surprise then that she now has an upcoming EP on Ambivalent‘s Delf.
Although Mor Elian fortunately does not suffer from tinnitus or noise-induced hearing problems, she’s an advocate for caring for the two most vital organs for a musician. It’s vital to give your ears a rest as a DJ and producer, so here are four tracks Mor Elian likes to wind down to.
