Institution 007: elle fast
While she has been in the scene for almost 2 decades, Winnipeg’s elle fast didn’t start DJing until about 2 years ago (amazingly!). Her mature, unique sound is emotive, eclectic and groovy.
Elle fast is very active in the Winnipeg underground scene through her involvement in the Symptom Technologies collaborative, and in spinning at innumerable parties at venues around the city. She has been active out-of-province as well, performing at the last installment of Connect Festival, Saskatchewan, summer of 2017.
We asked elle fast recently what she gets out of DJ’ing: “Connection… it’s an amazing feeling to have a direct line into people’s hearts and brains. One of my favourite things in life is digging for music, so I feel like this is a way I can share that experience with others. For live performances, you are the facilitator of this crazy, powerful joint experience. When everything gels, it feels like the universe lines up for a moment.”
We at Institution are very grateful for this fantastic journey of melodic, progressive techno. Set some time aside to float away to these sounds of Winnipeg’s elle fast. ❤
