Elaquent - Long Drives To Nowhere (CD)
Release Date Update: Bumped from 7/1/2022 to 7/29/2022
Guelph, Ontario based beatmaker and producer Sona Elango, better known as Elaquent, is best regarded for his warm blend of instrumental hip hop, jazz, and electronic music. Using mainly samplers and drum machines, Elaquent’s sound is atmospheric and conceptual, with each record a season in its own right.
The record is thoughtfully reflective, and journals the mental turbulence of feeling stuck but wanting more for yourself, and then pushing yourself to get there. As explained by Elaquent, “Ultimately this is a record about not giving up on yourself and taking the steps to move forward.”
Citing influences as The Kount, 10.4 Rog, and Kaelen Ellis, Long Drives to Nowhere maintains Elaquent’s signature warmth and honey-like consistency on each track. The record feels dreamy and nostalgic without relying on tropes, primarily due to Elaquent’s skill in translating relatable themes into instrumentation.
