Church* Feat. El B (Groove Chronicles / Ghost) says


EL-B (UK | Ghost Recordings, Tempa)

EL-B is one of the most important figures in the history of UK bass music. He was a pioneering Garage and Dubstep musician
who highly influenced current artists such as Skream, Benga and Burial.

Born to a saxophonist father, he began making music when he dropped out of school aged 16, and after receiving his schooling in dance music from Kiss FM legend Colin Dale began producing drum & bass. In 1996 he met fellow producer Noodles, and together they formed seminal garage duo Groove Chronicles. They were instrumental in creating the UK garage 2-step sound, setting in motion the genesis of dubstep and grime in the process.

Following a few years of Garage crossing over into the pop charts and becoming a pale imitation of its former self, El-B formed the groundbreaking Ghost label and crew, taking the 2-step sound into more rugged, tougher-edged climes and away from the saccharine vocals of the clubs. Falling somewhere in between the drum & bass of his origins and the slower syncopation of his Groove Chronicles days, he and his cohorts created a highly influential sound which would splinter and evolve into the dubstep and grime music that went on to become a global force and influence some of the biggest recording artists in the world like Drake, Jay-Z and Kanye West.

With hundreds of production and engineering credits to his name, he is a prolific and enduring force whose contribution to the UK's music scene and sounds cannot be underestimated.
