It started with a recorded cassette.
It all started when his father gave him a recorded cassette that he played over and over until it broke. Elado’s love for music was born. By his early teens he was making mixtapes and DJing at his father’s parties. A trip to Amsterdam in the nineties set him on the path to becoming a professional DJ , curator and edit maker.
Crate digging for rare vinyl.
12” became his format of choice and new music his mission. He started digging deeper and deeper, unearthing lost gems and forgotten tracks from all over the globe. His edits have a way of bringing new life to these tracks, and his latest EP is no exception. A real tastemaker was born and from here he started to become a mainstay in the clubbing scene in Tel Aviv, where he has a residency at The Block. Condesa Electronics even made him a custom-built rotary mixer to use in his DJ sets, which weave through breakbeat, electro, disco, house & lost grooves from all over the globe. Recently his sounds have been making their way to Europe, with revered Canadian icon Eddie C booking him to play in Berlin for the very first time.
Digging for rare wax has always been a big passion of Elado, traveling the world to find 12” gems from all corners of the globe to finally end up in the studio chopping and editing these vibrant vibes into new tunes.
Cutting, chopping and editing rare music into danceable tunes.
Until 2020, giving tracks a rework was a personal pursuit with nothing being released on record labels, but as with many artists, the Covid-19 pandemic afforded him time to put more time into his passion of producing and editing. His genre-melding, globe-trotting debut productions on Eddie C’s Red Motorbike and revered New York imprint Razor-N-Tape put him on the map as a rising star of the edits, with him clocking peer support from Antal, Jacques Renault and Folamore.
