In the year 2000, when the world failed to crumble into the predicted dystopia, one individual took notice and decided to do something about it. After a fruitless quest to arm himself with military grade weapons, capable of bringing about the catastrophic destruction he craved, he thought to use the even more dangerous arsenal he had been amassing. Now properly outfitted with decades worth of the best Hardcore/Gabber tunes ever made he set out to destroy crowds and bring darkness to the dance floors of Toronto.
After over 15 years of aural violence he has shown no signs of giving up his dream of crushing everything in his path with earth shattering kick drums & screaming synths.
The future has never been brighter for Fuzzboy… nor has it seemed so dark.
Starting at 8 years old, Elekid was surrounded by electronic music. Growing up in Chicago, he was fortunate enough to catch legends like Bad Boy Bill with the simple tune of a radio. He watched the hey days of Chicago & LA Hard House come and go. It was only a matter of time before he was able to acquire his own gear to start DJing. At 14 (1997), Elekid started doing what he felt was just a natural progression from someone who simply loves electronic music to someone who plays it. Over the course that spans several decades, he has played just about everything hard across the entire United States. In 2005, Elekid made the next obvious step to production. You can check out Elekid’s releases on junodownload.com, beatport.com, and many other digital music sites!
