What happens when groovy meets hip-hop? Well after one listen to Aurora/Fox Valley native, Elton Aura you’ll know exactly, as is the case with his latest offering “Free Run”.
“Free Run” takes you on a journey of sounds and emotions. Producer Phoelix, who has been making a name for himself in the city, assisted in production with his signature warped sound, and Elton, on cue, delivered with soulful harmonizations and thought provoking lyrics.
With a sound that clashes hip-hop, groove, soul and gospel, Elton has a sound that is not only distinctive, but one that pulls you in.
Elton’s ability to incorporate hip-hop with live music shows is a trend that Chicago is leader in, with the likes of Anderson.Paak, Saba and Chance, and is a trend the rest of hip-hop is following.
Here Elton is performing for Sofar Sounds - which is a platform that allows intimate performances on Halloween.
