Ryan Elliott [Spectral Sound / Ghostly Int.] w/ Arohan + M.quiet vs 31avas @ PALA
:: Spectral Sound / Ghostly International | Detroit ::
Upstart Detroit DJ Ryan Elliott has gained notoriety over the past few years by programming sets that are as well crafted and sophisticated as they are danceable. From ice cold minimal techno to summery house beats, Elliott has played both big rooms and martini bars with equal success. As a DJ, Ryan is adept in the late night hours, finding the balance between heavy floor tracks and elegant crowdpleasers. Utilizing three decks, multiple audio sources, and outboard effects are par for the course, and Elliott employs them with the utmost skill to keep crowds engaged.
With a fervent interest in the emerging international techno scene, he is a walking dictionary of artists, labels, and releases. Elliott held his Tuesday night events at Ann Arbor’s Goodnight Gracie with Matthew Dear from 2002 to 2004, bringing back energy to the city’s nightlife. Ryan Elliott was also asked to be a resident at Detroit’s weekly Untitled alongside Dear, Tadd Mullinix, Mike Servito, and Derek Plaslaiko. In 2005 he began a new residency at Detroit’s Oslo, and created a stellar 33-track mix for the 2xCD edition of the Spectral Sound Vol. 1 compilation.

Arohan's opening set for Gui Boratto at Holocene had everyone completely freaking out. His energy on stage makes dancing unavoidable, and his catchy-yet-intelligent techno tracks are on the level with Boratto and his colleagues. Arohan is most definitely on the short list of best producers in Portland. Arohan is the solo musical outlet for taylor gehrts. taylor is a portland native. He's been creating sound and music since 1999, most often with partner brandon fessler (fullcontactbotany) in the group mori. the sounds of ,mori have taken taylor down the west coast and to europe playing experimental electronic music. arohan's sound is a thoughtful combination of intelligent sound design and dance aesthetics. check it.
