First Listen

Brian Ellis "All I Know, All I See"

Hailing from the Southern California city of Escondido, funk specialist Brian Ellis will issue his Reflection EP via San Francisco's Voltaire label next week. Billed as a record that pushes Ellis' brand of "drum machine-synthesizer funk to the livest, rawest level" (and complete with a feature from The Egyptian Lover), Reflection is an expectedly keyboard-laden affair, for which "All I Know, All I See" serves as our first taste. Beginning with the snap of a lightly processed drum machine rhythm, the track initially finds Ellis whispering lyrics about the power of "the funk" over the laid-back procession, before showing off his skills across a number of synth-soaked chord structures and flowing solos. Ellis' six-track Reflection EP will be available in 12" vinyl form beginning July 29.
