It Is What It Is

by Elevator Suite

Elevator Suites first album in 10 years is a welcome return to their roots. ‘It Is What It Is’ has already garnered radio support from BBC Radio 6’s Craig Charles and Ibiza legend Alfredo and is receiving rave reviews from some of musics most influential players. The album is as eclectic as it is funky constantly drifting between quirky Latin, Funk and Jazz influenced tracks to more uptempo Electronica and House music. We think it’s a good old fashioned sit back feet up cool drink listen. Enjoy.x

Elevator Suite

by Elevator Suite

An intoxicating blend of 60’s infused easy listening sonic sensibilities with sunset flecked funk rhythms. With two BBC Radio 1 records of the week under our belt, 2007 saw the release of our second album simply called ‘Elevator Suite’.

Our first single release from the album ‘The Wheel’ was voted one of XFM’s Eddie Temple Morris’ top 5 tracks of the year.

Elevator Suite uphold the ‘Bristol Sound’ with this mix of urban funk. soul and bleeps that combine with chilled vocals, producing a combination of weirdness and funky pop! 'Voodoo Soul’ sets the tone and ‘Money’ shows the writing and vocal skills of their singer Robbo. ‘Eleanor Rigby’ takes things in a slightly different direction, but ‘How does it feel’ nails where this band are coming from nicely. Check it.

Barefoot & Shitfaced

by Elevator Suite

"There are very few new artists who release a debut album that is different to anything else that’s around. Elevator Suite has managed to release a cool sounding jazz influenced record that tries to be different with it’s approach and actually succeeds.

Try to predict the outcome to ‘Weekend Wonderboy’ and you will realise that you had not been listening to the lyrics closely. The lyrics are written by Paul Roberts but its also the teaming up of multi-instrumentalist Steve Grainger and DJ Andy Childs, whose appreciation of jazz, dance music and easy listening tunes, that musically manages to bring out something extra. ‘The Crown Caper’ instrumental sounds like something taken from a late 60’s English mob movie.

Two of the singles, ‘Man In A Towel’ and ‘Backaround’ are included here and are as catchy as anything those mass-produced puppet boy and girl groups churn out with the aid of certain record companies. Here you can appreciate the musicianship on these tracks.

‘Sixteen’ is the most diverse track on the album but my personal favourite is ‘Airhead’. Listen out for the sound effect that had me scratching my head on the first couple of listens.

It is obvious from listening to these tracks that Elevator Suite have a good ear and could produce movie soundtrack instrumentals if they wanted to and the way these tracks are layered and produced, it is very unlikely they will run out of ideas."

Remix Album

by Elevator Suite

A year after Elevator Suite released their self titled album, the album that would be their last ( We will insert an… ‘ahem …Not quite’! Here ), they had sanctioned this remix record. A collection of tracks spanning their criminally short career, this album slotted right into the expanding indie new rave scene that was exploding, with this record serving as a demonstration in how to cross genres. While none of the people responsible for the remixes are household names, their skill is measured here in real terms, an album with high quality remixes of high quality songs. A great crossover record.

For fans of: The Chemical Brothers, Fat Boy Slim, Doves
