Woodworm Blues

Last couple of months, I’ve been keeping an eye out for eLDOKO, also known as Tom Elkington, who’s been putting out some pretty groovy house beats lately. A resident at Oxford’s Eclectricity, and curator of the Gottwood Festival, eLDOKO’s somehow found time to put out his debut EP Woodworm Blues, via Monkey Safari‘s What! What! label. Pushing an in-the-pocket fidget and jazz-house sound, title track ‘Woodworm Blues’ wouldn’t sound out of place on Jesse Rose‘s What Do You Do If You Don’t? record – In fact, that’s exactly what I thought I was listening to, when I heard it for the first time (Big ups to Pelski for putting me on to his stuff). B-side ‘Hot Box’ is a downbeat piece of deeper tech-house, driven by a choppy analog synthline, while the EP is rounded off with remixes from Monkey Safari, and a bassy re-edit from eLDOKO himself. Check out the following, and if you dig the sound, swing by Beatport to purchase the EP in full 320:

    This is great. It is very difficult to listen to music.

    Wish you good luck.
