OCT 32nd means he created this song on Nov 1st. Do you get this??
man, himself, operates as an electro-machine. Composing singles
at the request of labels worldwide while shocking audiences
with his maddening skills, Jeremy Ellis surprisingly raises
the bar with every gig. Musicians and producers stand with awe-dropped
jaws while witnessing the joyful fury that is Jeremy Ellis'
performance style. Ellis' fans often resemble that of student
as his wildly intelligent, yet imposingly danceable tracks perplex
the most eager and adept melodic minds. Combining a lifetime
of classical training with a meticulous obsession with sound,
Ellis demonstrates himself as one of the forerunners of a new
era in electronic music pushing the industry's new toys beyond
their creators' intentions.
As Detroit's most percussive keyboard player and sickeningly
fluid, on-the-spot composer, Ellis commands the respect of naïve
listeners and industry gear-smiths alike. Truly, no one has
spoken through music alone so eloquently since Mozart or Miles
Davis. Alone, this is an amazing talent, but combine that detail
with the reality that Ellis spontaneously produces new tracks
while stupefied club-goers gaze on. Identifying primarily as
a keyboard player, Ellis assumed the identity of Ayro to demonstrate
his storytelling and vocal confidence with the release of his
solo LP and esteemed songbook, ElectronicLoveFunk, he quickly
became the voice of Detroit's new sound. With poetic lyrical
flow in his in words and melody, Ellis combined the vintage
sounds of instruments like the Rhodes piano with raw sounds
of the street through the earthly growl of the 808. Today, his
use of the MPC continues to develop beyond our imagination into
a uniquely futuristic and fondly nostalgiac style.
From the live show aspect, Ellis intrinsic use of the MPC has
grown into a wild toad's ride that hasn't been seen since Hendrix
non-chalant shredding of guitar licks with his teeth. Ellis
proved his producing abilities on his eloquently composed Ubiquity
release, The Lotus Blooms. Now, exceeding the expectations of
his peers, Jeremy Ellis' now marks himself not only as a leader
in composition, a wonder on the stage, and an inspiring player,
but he develops himself as a mad scientist of sounds or another,
better word - would like to say Willy Wonka of sounds. With
the use of the Akai MPC and a sponsorship in Propellerhead's
Reason, Ellis furthers his profound phonic wisdom through his
astute skill in sampling, tweeking, and artistically sculpting
