Elephante — LA-based Asian-American DJ/producer, Harvard grad, has released his first single of 2021, “High Water” and will have a series of massive activations around this single and ultimately laddering into his sophomore album in August. The song is absolutely amazing and will have your head and hips swaying to it! Here at VULKAN, we encourage you guys to take a listen as you won’t want to miss it!
Elephante/Tim the “American Dream” — from his unique Asian-American experience growing up in Michigan, to his Ivy League education, to working for one of the top 4 consulting firms in the world (and HATING it), to pivot completely to pursue his personal happiness and passion in music — all independently.
About “High Water”:
“High Water” is the evolution of Elephante’s sound, featuring his own vocals, guitar playing, and songwriting. While staying true to his high-energy dance roots, “High Water” marks a shift towards a more alt-electronic, organic feel. Combining the atmospheric verve and production of modern electronic artists like Odesza and Jai Wolf, with the singer-songwriter and alt-rock vibes of John Mayer and Red Hot Chili Peppers, “High Water” tells a story about getting caught up riding a wave of excess, and the view from the bottom of the ensuing crash.
Elephante Short Bio:
A wildly innovative producer, artist and songwriter fusing melodic electronic dance music with pop, blues, rock, and other genres, Elephante (American musical artist Tim Wu) has garnered hundreds of millions of streams across his two indie EPs: I Am The Elephante(2016), a nine-track exploration of progressive house, synthpop and trap; and Glass Mansion (2018), which shot to #1 on iTunes’ U.S. Dance chart. His upcoming project, Heavy Glow, represents his first full-length studio album, a largely solo effort further pushing the boundaries of dance music, featuring the debut single, the high-energy “Dopamine.” Elephante has headlined two sold-out national tours, played nightlife residencies including those at Hard Rock and Wynn Las Vegas, and appeared at such major music festivals as Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas and Electric Zoo.
