On Sale Friday: ELIGH & AMP LIVE at Fox Theatre | 03.20.12
Eligh, a self-described “genre-breaking, obsessive bass fiend” has continued to sustain himself as a salient figure for over fifteen years within the increasingly fickle and rapidly revolving world of hip-hop. The Los Angeles native has maintained his respected status by fearlessly veering from the traditional trajectory, which is often limited to beats and rhymes. Instead, Eligh has chosen to fabricate projects that incorporate the gritty sounds of the UK dub scene, the unorthodox styling of indie rock, the lush guitars and honesty of folk music, and the complexity of jazz, all without losing the listener in a musically esoteric composition. Eligh is well known for his recent collaborations with The Grouch.
Amp Live is building a rep as one of cali’s most talented and diverse music producer/djs. After his dreamy soulful beats for the hip hop group Zion I, he has been able to produce for major and independent artist such as Akon(Warner), Flipsyde(Interscope Records), Nicole Schercenger of the Pussy Cat Dolls(Interscope), Tokyo Police Club, MGMT, Linkin Park , Goapele, and Mystic. Most importantly Amplive’s most recent success has been his critcally acclaimed “Rainydayz Remixes” album for the rock group Radiohead’s In Rainbows LP. Always experimenting, Amplive has also done rock, dance, electro, mashups, and drum ‘n bass.
In the past years, Amp Live has been a part of the video game industry, having his production being one of the main features for the Sony Traxxpad and also a basketball player character in the NBA 2K6 to the newly released 2K10 video game. Finally, Amp’s beats have been featured on a number of movies, tv shows, and commercials, which include Nestle’s “Wonka Candy-Feed Your Imagination” series, “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Dirt” by Courtney Cox, “Friday Night Lights”, “Honey”, “Big Fat Liar”,”Leperchaun 4″, “Americas Top Model” by Tyra Banks, ESPN Sports center, and the “Jamie Kennedy Show”.
