UK-based producer Ellis kicks off the week with a Daft Punk-inspired slice of electro house, delivering his new single, “Orbit” on Monstercat. Following his 2020 EP release, Recollection Prospective on Monstercat Instinct, today’s track arrives on Monstercat Uncaged, bringing harder, punchier percussive & synth elements to his usually disco-forward palette.
Ellis shares, “I had a craving for high energy music again whilst in lockdown. I was listening to a lot of Justice and Daft Punk around the time of making this, so I was heavily influenced by sampling and chopping up sounds.”
