Eliza Noble and Jennifer Skillman are Eli & Fur: the British live act, singer-songwriter, and producer duo whose career together stretches back for nearly a decade.

Having formed a close bond in their teens born out of their unwavering passion for music in all its guises, their careers as DJs, songwriters, vocalists, and producers has taken them around the globe as touring musicians and seen them grace the stages of the biggest festivals in the world including Coachella, Tomorrowland, and Glastonbury.

‘Found In The Wild’ is the pair’s long-awaited studio debut which will be released this summer on the seminal electronic imprint and long-time label home Anjunadeep on 25th June. A dual part album concept, ‘Found in The Wild’ is a sonic presentation of two contrasting and quintessential parts of the unique Eli & Fur sound; two sides of the Eli & Fur which they are finally ready to share with the world, “We wanted to show both sides of us. We are quite varied in the way that we write music and so it made sense to have two parts living side by side. Everything we really love is on the album and we’re super proud of how it’s come together”.

The first half of the album ‘Found’ is a collection of song-based productions which show Eli & Fur’s strengths as songwriters, vocalists, and producers in equal measure. Having begun their careers as songwriters at renowned production house Xenomania writing hits for pop acts like Girls Aloud, Eli & Fur’s talents as songwriters are abundantly clear.

Released today, ‘Wild Skies’ is taken from the ‘Found’ collection – a sensual and otherworldly ensemble that glues the duo’s trademark textured sound palette together perfectly. “Wild Skies came together so organically and naturally. I felt like I was expressing myself without even really realizing how and the melodies just fell out of me. A lot of the time, I’ll write lyrics before the song, but with this one there was no preparation whatsoever, I just sat down at the computer with the microphone and sung, and that was that!” (Fur).

The second half of the LP ‘In the Wild’ is a change in gear conceptually and ventures into the more upbeat, clubbier side of the project – these tracks explore the girls’ penchant for emotive productions geared for the dancefloor which find the sweet spot between the dark and the emotive, marrying evocative vocals written around their own experiences as young musicians with their unique brand of euphoric club cuts. Presented side by side as ‘Found In The Wild’, the first album from Eli & Fur shows the artists at their most assured.

“We spent a lot of our career trying to work out who we are and what our sound is, being told we can’t make club tracks which have the type of vocals we love. What’s great is that every single track on the album sounds like us, it’s all Eli & Fur but it’s two different sides of it. We want people to hear more structured songs and we also want to show the type of darker, clubbier music we love – there’s no reason why we can’t do both. It’s been such a creative journey so far but we feel more and more sure of what we want to say musically.”

    • Qrion Announces Debut Album ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ qrion-i-hope-it-lasts-forever-feature-oz-edm

      Acclaimed Japanese-American producer Qrion proudly announces her debut album ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’, out October 29 via Anjunadeep. The album announcement comes alongside the release of the first single ‘Your Love’, out now. Qrion, real name Momiji Tsukada, wrote ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ primarily during the lockdown in San Francisco. ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ invokes the emotions Tsukada felt during her adventurous move from hometown Sapporo to sunny San Francisco and pays homage to Tsukada’s memories of her childhood and her father. Tsukada presents a versatile collection of electronica and club tracks, with introspective cuts like ‘It’s All Over’ and ‘Maybe It Was Already Here’ appearing alongside lively club anthems such as ‘11-11’ and ‘Proud’. The album also notably features collaborations with talented British musician Flownn, Canadian vocalist and composer Kroy, and California’s Mars Kasei. Speaking on the record, Tsukada highlighted the importance of nostalgia in its creation: “I connected with my old memories – the feelings of spending time with my Dad, the time I lived with my family in Japan, and the small but important moments of my life from my life in Sapporo.” In creating the album, the artist found it a cathartic process as it helped her to piece together memories she buried so deep, unearthing them as she sat down to work on the music. She continues, “I feel music often creates a bridge to access memorable parts of our lives and in this sense ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ is a very personal and special album to me. My hope is that my music and this album will also become part of other people’s memories – something that people can carry with them into the future.” ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ is the latest triumph in a career that’s seen Qrion release on legendary imprints Mad Decent, Last Night on Earth, and This Never Happened. Named on Forbes Japan’s 30 Under 30, the producer has garnered notable support from the likes of Mixmag, Billboard, and The Fader in just a short space of time. Now armed with her debut 12-track album, Qrion draws inspiration from far-reaching corners of the electronic music sphere – from the likes of Overmono, Bonobo, and Calibre, to her unashamed love of trance and EDM with artists such as Above & Beyond, Deadmau5, and Skrillex. The first single taken from the album, ‘Your Love’, features Qrion’s characteristic pulsating bass alongside staccato plucks and evocative vocal chops. The track joins Tsukada’s acclaimed catalog that has seen support by the likes of Danny Howard at BBC Radio 1 and Jason Bentley at KCRW, as well as prolific producers such as TSHA, Moon Boots, Lane 8, The Aston Shuffle, and Gorgon City. Having shared the stage with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, Deadmau5, and Tourist, Qrion now takes to the road with her own headline tour across North America in support of the album.  

    • Alan Fitzpatrick Announces First Artist Album In 10 Years “Machine Therapy” alan-fitzpatrick-feature-oz-edm

      British producer and techno legend Alan Fitzpatrick announces ‘Machine Therapy’, his first artist album in a decade. Featuring high-profile collaborations with LOWES, Lawrence Hart, Catrin Vincent, drum and bass star High Contrast and Kele, the frontman of Bloc Party, the twelve-track album lands on Anjunadeep on November 12. “The album is called ‘Machine Therapy’ as, for me, the time I had in the studio was like a therapy session. Particularly with the pandemic; not knowing what was happening, what the future might look like, what might happen in the club scene; being able to get into the studio with no time constraints and just really pour my heart into making music really helped get me through the last year and definitely help keep my mental health in check. It was the perfect opportunity to sit in the chair, switch off from the world and create.” – Alan Fitzpatrick There can be no doubting Alan Fitzpatrick’s position as one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. A countless back roster of head-turning productions over the past decade has seen the Englishman’s profile continue to transition rapidly from the techno underground towards the electronic music mainstream, attracting significant attention from BBC Radio 1, Mixmag and Resident Advisor and elevating Alan Fitzpatrick to the position of global headliner. When discussing the new album Fitzpatrick stated “I’m really proud of the finished product and to me, it feels like a proper LP; I think you can really hear different aspects of my personality and the emotions I was experiencing during the writing process. Some tracks are full of hope, while other tracks are very emotionally charged and some have quite a solemn feel to them… It’s a real emotional journey of sounds. Obviously, the sound is still very club-focused, as that’s my heritage, my sound, but I feel like I’ve explored the spectrum of electronic music with this album and pushed the boundaries in terms of the musical structure and format that I’m generally known for. I really hope that people can connect with the album on the same level in which it was created.” Available globally from November 12, “Machine Therapy” will be released via Anjunadeep; pre-order you copy here.
