Hallucinating On A Spiritual Level – Elohim Show Review

October 20, 2017

Reviewed by Nicholas Shutes

Hallucinating on a Spiritual Level – is what I dubbed the Alison Wonderland and Elohim Tour. The ’Sensation‘al Elohim has been one of my favorite up-and-coming artists. I was first introduced to her live show when she opened for LANY at Popscene SF in 2015, and she always dazzles the crowd.

After seeing her multiple times at Lollapalooza I honestly was more excited to catch her than the headliner at The Fox Theater in Oakland, CA when the show was announced. Especially since this year she’s come out with tracks from a few of my favorite Chicago producers Whethan and Louis The Child.

As someone who follows her on Twitter I’ve been loving all the reactions to people discovering their new love Elohim. Wandering through the crowd at The Fox and hearing people ask “Who is this? She’s killing it!” made my heart smile with joy. It’s always thrilling to ride “The Wave” when an artist blows up.

Seeing how Elohim has done several festivals, is opening for Alison Wonderland and Jai Wolf to finish the year, I can’t wait till she’s headlining her own shows! Additionally I cannot wait to hear this unreleased song.

When you get the opportunity do not miss your chance to catch her show!

Follow Elohim on: Twitter / Soundcloud / Facebook

An immense remix package came out close to a week go for Louis The Child’s Love Is Alive, one of our favorite electronic tracks this year due to both Elohim’s ethereal vocals and the song’s dreamy intoxicating beauty. Vegas electronic connoisseur Meaux Green teams up with Hollywood’s B-Sides for an opulent and palatial future trap re-work that leaves me all warm and fuzzy. Love is indeed alive, in my adoration for this finely textured, luminous beaming edit. Their remix, which is out now on Ultra, can also be streamed from Spotify, here.

We love Louis The Child’s Love Is Alive for many reasons. First of all, it features Elohim on saccharine guest vocals. Secondly, its diaphanous swirling future pop is pure magical bliss, the exact sort of dreamy lush, woozy intoxicating treat to lose yourself in on a hot summer’s day. I could go on and on about the track from the red hot Chicago duo, but let’s turn our attention towards one of a few magnificent remixes that surfaced today. Toronto native Chet Porter has transformed the song into an extra balmy future bass spectacular fitting of the torrid holiday weekend we’re about to embark on to close out the summer. Its a refreshing dose of tropics hued future beats and glittering chill trap that evokes Jai Wolf and Odesza. Chet Porter gives Love Is Alive an airy buzzing, radiant sparkling lift that leaves us feeling more than alive. I can’t wait to catch Chet Porter at the Greek in Berkeley when he hits the road with Odesza this fall.

It feels like we’ve been in love with Chicago duo Louis The Child’s new EP, Love Is Alive, since well before its release. After all, we’ve been enchanted by its title track for the last month, and we can’t get enough of Elohim’s dreamy voice on it. The clever six track record also encompasses airy jaunting Phone Died, Louis The Child’s Blaise Railey featuring hit, which we shared just two weeks prior. The versatile producers have fleshed out the rest of the EP with more spellbinding treats, blending a vast array of styles and influences in the meticulous process and showing us the true extent of their dexterous, shape shifting capabilities. Slow Down Love, which features Connecticut chanteuse Chelsea Cutler on deep sonorous vocals, is a rich thrumming, opaquely hypnotic synthesis on which riveting steel drums add another vivid dimension to the track’s combination of viscous electronica, briery R&B, and inky hip hop. Stream Louis The Child’s Love Is Alive EP in full on Soundcloud below. Buckle in for a fabulous ride through an assortment of soundscapes and emotions.

I can’t be more ecstatic that two favorites have combined as one on this new treat, Love Is Alive. Oh yes, my love for both is very much alive as Chicago production stars Louis The Child unite with fast rising LA talent Elohim to sweeten our day with a unique combination of both of their styles. Elohim’s murky simmering, diaphanous swirling pop vocals dawdle in a viscous pool of gentle beats and woozy synths. This pop crossover version of Louis The Child displays restraint and dexterity. Their clever handiwork showcases a subtle and pensively euphoric side to the visionary pair. I’m almost sure I hear the duo on backing vocals too, which makes me wonder if Louis The Child will be providing lead vocals on their own singles in the near future, like The Chainsmokers have been doing. Love Is Alive is a warm balm on a cool day, a shot of dreamy optimism and cottony enchantment to the heart. Purchase the single from all major outlets, here, and catch Louis The Child on tour across the states through March. Elohim will be making a headlining return to Popscene in San Francisco come March 31st, too!
