Since bursting onto the music scene back in 2012, Eli & Fur have meticulously crafted a signature sound that blends electronic melodies with evocative vocals. Their inaugural track, ‘You’re So High,’ made a resounding impact by reaching the top 3 on Hype Machine and amassing over 3 million plays on YouTube.
In 2015, their ascent continued. They collaborated with Shadow Child on ‘Seeing is Believing,’ released under Defected. ‘Feel The Fire’ found its home on Anjunadeep, while ‘Your Eyes’ marked a self-release on NYX Music, coupled with a groundbreaking partnership with Beatport on their newly launched streaming platform.
More recently, Eli & Fur gained widespread acclaim with their ‘California Love’ EP, which propelled them in the United States and earned them a coveted slot at Coachella 2016.
The year 2015 was pivotal for Eli & Fur. Recognized as “Artists to Watch” by Beatport, they received nominations for ‘Best Newcomer’ at The DJ Awards, ‘Best Producer’ at the Bass Music Awards, ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ at DJ Magazine’s ‘Best of British,’ and, most notably, ‘Best Breakthrough Artist’ at the 2016 IDMA Awards. Their productions received strong support from dance music luminary Pete Tong, and they have an exciting lineup of releases and collaborations in the pipeline, including partnerships with Dantiez Saunderson, Tâches, Erick Morillo, Santé, and more.
In an unconventional move, Eli & Fur embarked on a North American tour inspired by the iconic duo Thelma & Louise. They documented their adventure across 13 cities using Go-Pro cameras, traversing planes, trains, automobiles, and even boats. Along the way, they made appearances at radio stations, studio sessions, TV networks, and clubs, all of which culminated in the creation of their self-made video for ‘California Love.’
With a remarkable 2015 behind them, 2016 promises to be another year of continued success for Eli & Fur as they continue to make their mark in the music world.
