TRACK PREMIERE: ELUSIVE “SIDE STEP”

L.A. producer Elusive has a new album Moments out July 28 on the powerhouse Dome of Doom label, and here's a stand-out track: the slinky glitchy loop-the-loop instrumental "Side Step," which sounds like someone running a video game level in reverse. (Lower the flag, abandon the princess, lose all your money ... but also get your lives back!) 200 blue cassettes of Moments available here—get them before the game is over! By

TRACK PREMIERE: ELUSIVE “8-BIT FANTASY” (OUT NOW ON DOME OF DOOM!)

L.A. beatmaker Elusive has a long history both in the city's music community and on L.A. RECORD—check out his past work here!—and now he's back with a new album on Dome of Doom. Cosmic Web is out today and we've got a particularly evocative track above: "8-Bit Fantasy" does just what is promises and more, delivering plenty of technological menace and unease through two antsy minutes that sound like the load-screen soundtrack to the most terrifying pixelated boss ever. If you wanna advance to the next level, you can get the tape or the digital here! By

TRACK PREMIERE: ELUSIVE “PAPER PARACHUTES” (F. EMILE PORE’E)

Local producer and beatmaker Elusive has a long and distinguished history here in L.A.—and on L.A. RECORD—and if the premiere above is any indication, he might be about to top himself with his latest album. "Paper Parachutes" is bristling with digital texture, 8-bit melody and even some soulful cosmic guitar—in the future, this is how they'll transport people who want to go somewhere they've never been before. His Headspace album is out Fri., Aug. 5, on Alpha Pupget it here! By

TRACK PREMIERE: CAPTAIN SUPERNOVA “WITHOUT GRAVITY” (FT. ANGELA MUHWEZI) (ELUSIVE REMIX)

Consider this your close encounter with the mysterious Captain Supernova, a cosmic anomaly temporarily landed locally who released his jazzy-funky Doors of Perception EP in March on Cold Busted. Now he's granted select producers the chance to reinterpret his transmissions, and L.A. RECORD can reveal at least one result from this above-top-secret project: this remix of "Without Gravity" by noted local producer Elusive, a frequent feature on our One Reporter's Opinion show on Dublab. Supernova's remix EP will be out on Fri., June 10. AND we're also presenting this luxurious live video of the original "Without Gravity," recorded last September in Long Beach.
