Elisha, the virtuoso behind the keys, takes us on a sonic journey with his latest single, “Good Friction.” Having migrated to the concrete jungle of New York City two years ago, Elisha found inspiration in the city’s electronic heartbeat. Despite a background in jazz and professional piano playing, NYC became the catalyst for his musical metamorphosis.
“Good Friction” is a manifestation of Elisha’s diverse musical lineage, seamlessly blending jazz, hip-hop, and electronic dance elements. The track radiates experimental textures and meticulous sound design, a testament to Elisha’s mastery. As the sole creator, he plays the piano, synths, and assumes the roles of composer and producer, making this debut release a personal odyssey into uncharted musical territories. The influences of luminaries like James Blake, Flying Lotus, and Brad Mehldau echo through Elisha’s composition. The single is not just a musical endeavor; it’s a sonic tapestry woven with threads of experience, expertise, and the pulsating energy of the city that never sleeps.
In crafting “Good Friction,” Elisha envisions music that transcends genres, offering a harmonious blend of soothing melodies and dance-worthy beats. As the debut marks his solo venture, Elisha embraces the opportunity to share his unique sound with the world, an auditory experience that is as diverse and dynamic as the city that birthed it.
