I met Uncle EL as "Elevation" in my bboying/just getting started on beats days 15+ years ago crossing paths on both South and Northsides of our beloved city of wind. Donning a thick locked lions mane at the time and rocking the mic regularly both live and in studio (shouts to Dover crib in Uptown!) It's Always been love and respect, talk about consistency and one rising to new challenges, thats him ------->>>>> I feel EL has been dope all around since; from growing into djaying, production, fashion aesthetics (most recently custom shoe painting/restoration) , the brother doesn't disappoint.
So it's only right that for ETC, that Uncle EL, would go deeper with his production, expressing more his uptempo vibe and love for dance rhythms; not abandoning his bboy/hiphop roots, that some might already be familiar with from previous releases, or from seeing him rock live at Push or Open Beats (Chicago)...
Now U C Me? Is here and It's an honor to present family as we continue to Expand The Collective, there's NO WAY that you can miss Uncle EL if you have in the past, with what he's showcased to us all here....
