London-based producer and DJ Elkka has announced the release of her new EP ‘Euphoric Melodies’. It marks her first release on the Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour, and will be released on May 21.
Lead single ‘Burnt Orange’, which was released this week, is an uplifting house number that pays homage to Elkka’s family, and is appropriate for living room family parties and dancefloors alike. “I wanted to create music for both intimate and public spaces,” Elkka clarifies.
Speaking more on ‘Euphoric Melodies’, Elkka says, “‘Euphoric Melodies’ started out as an exploration of what pulls me in, what makes me feel those moments of elation when writing music or listening to it or just when living life. The underlying theme seems to be warmth, euphoria and nostalgia, which plays out on this EP in different forms. Little did I know that as the EP came together nostalgia for euphoria would be so prevalent.”
‘Euphoric Melodies’ follows on from Elkka’ single release ‘I. Miss. Raving.’ which came out on Local Action last year.
Outside of producing her own music, Elkka is label boss over at femme culture, a record label and collective born out of the desire to champion women and non-binary DJs in electronic music.
