Since their debut release in 2013, Eli & Fur have been perfecting a sound built around infectious melodies with deep, driving bass lines topped with their distinguished brooding vocals. Their sound has developed into something quite unique and has earned them respect from some of the biggest names in dance music. Their first release, “You’re So High” reached Number 3 on Hype Machine and has since picked up over 6 million plays online. “Seeing is Believing” saw the girls collaborate with Shadow Child, “Feel The Fire” came on Anjunadeep followed by “Your Eyes,” their “California Love” EP, and a North America Tour. 2016 saw further collaborations with Erick Morillo, Tâches & Forrest as well continued releases on their own imprint NYX Music.

2015 was a pivotal year for Eli & Fur: they were tipped by Beatport as 2015 Artists to Watch and they rolled out the year with a Thelma & Louise inspired tour through North America, documenting every step of the 15 date tour with Go-Pro. The end result is the self-made video for California Love. 2016 was a year of continued success – a defining year for Eli & Fur. Notably the girls were awarded with the PRS Momentum fund in partnership with England Arts Council & Spotify. Their touring stepped up a notch with some key look shows, playing alongside the likes of Carl Cox at his Space residency, continued support from Ushuaia’s ANTS as well as support from Nic Fanciulli’s Social Festival. Further highlights saw Eli & Fur play at Woogie Weekend, Los Angeles, Manchester’s The Warehouse Project, and Berlin’s Kraftwerk.

As they go into 2017 off the back of an incredible few years, Eli & Fur immediately step into the Red Bull Studios London. Their touring this year takes them to Hard’s fun packed Holy Ship, Carl Cox’s stage at this years Ultra Music Festival as well as a spot at Coachella. There is an excitement surrounding Eli & Fur that is authentic and intriguing. True talent wrapped up in a bundle of laughs, feeling their way as they go and having a damn good time on their way.
