House of EL has given us a soulful masterpiece with his track ‘You Don’t Know My Name’.
Speaking on the track, House of EL explains:
“You don’t know my name I did when I was really digging into that 70’s funk sound at the time. You know…. Sly & Bootsie… I wanted to talk about relationships (as a change), it’s that feeling when someone claims to love you but doesn’t really understand you. I’m always intrigued as to why people get obsessed with someone else. Ultimately I think relationships are funny things because how can you really know anyone – I guess you just have to take that chance. Tom Ford on guitar and Karma Kid was on one, I think we wrote something like 3 tunes in one day – sometimes it just comes easy like that!”
Originally a jazz trumpeter, House of EL furthered his musicality as he moved into producing and song-writing, quickly establishing his credibility working with artists such as Plan B, Paloma Faith and Chase and Status before emerging with his own original material. Aside from his own artist project, House of EL is an accomplished arranger and has lent his skill to many luminaries in the world of popular music over the years.
