Written, produced and recorded on his own, the US-based DJ, producer and live performer Miles Ellis is set to release 'Journey of the Deep' via Integrity Records. The offering sees Ellis join the label's ‘Yellow’ artist series, which previously included Fabrice Lig, Crâne de Poule and minimalArchiv. Set for a November 21 release, the upcoming four-tracker marks his post-pandemic return to the label.
The EP is a must-listen for those fond of raw and uncut timeless-house music; simple yet stunning in its sound.
Ellis bestows upon listeners a sonic spread of infectious grooves, addicting deep bass lines combined with vintage 909 techno rides and soaring strident pads that lie at the heart of house and techno music.
Drifting from drums and rock n’ roll to drum machines and electronic music, Ellis began to produce tracks that led him to a feature in Integrity Records’ 2019 ‘The Other Side’ compilation with his slow burner ‘As Far’.
