Dave Eleanor pulls his influences from german and british bass music, from pop influenced electronica and dub to construct delicate songs and tracks that both work on headphones and on the dancefloor.
He ensnares listeners and dancers alike, inviting them to follow his clear and forward pushing drum programming, as well as his introspective voice and spacious synth lines. The field he opens herewith is a land of forsakenness, melancholy and silent hope. In his live performances, the mid 20-ies musician combines drum patterns with sparse synthesizer lines, deep bass lines and his own voice.
Dave Eleanor’s previous EPs “wait.ep”, “wake.ep” and “dangerous EP” on Subtrakt have been stirring up attention and brought airplay on various TV and radio stations, as well as a spot on m4music Festival’s “Demo of the Year”-CD. Dave Eleanor is also an active remixer of the electronic and pop scene: he has done interpretations for acts like Greis, Hundred Waters, Lapcat, Gerard or Rotkeller.
With the EP “Naked & Nicotine” Dave Eleanor turned in at the start of 2015 his preliminary highlight of an astonishing musical progression. During the three years since his debut EP “Wait” he played numerous gigs in and around Zurich, released two additional EPs, remixed other artists and enthralled party crowds with his eclectic DJ sets.
