Eli Brown, an irresistible power, drops a huge three-track EP of tasty house and techno cuts. He steps up for the first release on Factory 93, Insomniac’s new underground sister label, offering an eclectic blend of sounds from the hard-hitting end of the dance floor.
Eli Brown intelligently strikes a balance between an unrelenting electro rhythm and early 90’s trance elements on the EP’s title track, Escape. The inclusion of evocative synth stabs sets the tone for a major decrease unlike any other. With speaker-ripping synths and jaw-dropping basslines oozing disco class of the highest order, this is a DJ toolset to decimate dancefloors all over the world!
The song Morning Lightencapsulates Eli Brown’s enduring popularity. A powerfully touching track that shows his ability at luring melody lines over rumbling techno rhythms. The soulful voice cuts surgically sliced and placed in at the right moments contrast with the crisp synths and brooding low-end bass. My House closes out the EP with a bang, bringing some classic house vibes. Until a party-ready vocal is added, the bass blends seamlessly with the irresistibly close 909 drum grooves, dominating the senses for the period.
I’m excited to be the first release on Factory 93. It’s always one of the best events to play at and I think this release definitely installs that harder and darker feeling in the listener, which is what Factory 93 is all about. – Eli Brown
Eli Brown has created a genuine techno/house hybrid that he has performed with sophistication.
Born as an underground and techno events organizer, Factory 93 has delivered an incredible number of parties around the world. Having brought guests from the lights of Carl Cox, Dixon, Adriatique, Adam Beyer and more, Factory 93 has become a techno institution in the USA. Now, they have made a step forward launching their new music label set to showcase some of the more heavy-hitting sounds of the dance music world.
Factory 93 Records had the pleasure of witnessing his wizardry behind the decks during one of the last live events it hosted before the pandemic caused festivals to come to screeching hault in 2020. Eli Brown brought the house down with one of the most memorable sets by all accounts at the neonGARDEN stage during EDCMexico in the heart of the country’s capital. His performance was considered a can’t-miss moment after flooding the Factory-hosted stage with nonstop jams during the back-to-back set with Mason Maynard at EDC Las Vegas the year prior. Now, he’s tying a thread through those previous gigs with a remarkable debut on Factory 93 that has been a long time coming.
