Elaquent feels the music lines should never touch

Submitted by on September 17, 2012 – 10:41 pmNo Comment

Set to debut with his five-song EP Parallel, out Oct. 30, Guelph producer Elaquent envisions his concoctions as creating an image of music constantly overlapping itself, with things that have been done before, or styles being replicated.

“Parallel lines refer to two lines that never intersect or touch, which is how I feel about this music shit lately,” said Elaquent in his latest release about the EP.

“I’m certainly not the only musician doing the kind of music that I do, but I find a lot of pressure in all sorts of places to follow the same type of formula as other artists, many of which I’m fans of.”

He feels he doesn’t fit the typical mold, and would rather “stay in his own lane” as he so simply puts it.

The debut single from the EP and title track gives a lasting impression of a made-by-design style of music, composed of very little sampling, and more original structure, giving his tracks their own distinct vibe.
