I was pretty psyched to have the opportunity to interview Rob Garza, one half of DC’s own Thievery Corporation. Their ESL Music label was branching out and starting to hold events in the bay area and it was a great chance to talk to someone who has the same DC roots as me about my new home in SF. Little did I know, Rob also moved to SF about a year ago from DC to immerse himself in the music and art culture that thrives in SF and takes a backseat to politics in DC. We had a great convo and I’m really looking forward to meeting him at the show this weekend. Catch him along with ESL Music’s Ancient Astronauts and SF’s Afrolicious at Public Works tomorrow night.
Getting her start DJing in Washington, DC and the East Coast's hottest venues, DJ Lil’ Elle aka Ellen Lovelidge relocated to California 5 years ago but has been bringing her upbeat vibes to the West Coast.
As a creative director and artist, she has a deep knowledge of music spanning across many genres and can be heard spinning a mix of anything from hip hop, house, funk and soul, rock and roll, pop, and more. Her DC roots led to strong moombahton and latin house sets throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and she enjoys playing a laid back beach house vibe in San Diego.
Outside the club setting DJ Lil’ Elle has taken her skills to a number of concerts and special events: opening for artists like Amanda Blank, Wale and K.flay, spinning alongside turntable masters like Mad Decent’s DJ Sega, playing the USA Polo Cup Kickoff party, providing the tunes for a Sak’s Fifth Avenue fashion show, and DJing numerous weddings as some examples.
Enjoy the site and shoot me an email at elovelidge at gmail dot com or holler at me on Twitter @djlilelle for bookings, custom mixes, to send your tunes, or just to say what's up. Please see my professional artist site at elovelidge.com.
