Nobody - 2005 - AIM Jukebox Series #9



Nobody is the 27-year old somebody named Elvin Estela. He is an LA vinyl junkie hypnotized by analog waves and creates albums mirroring phases of his stereo obsessions. His first two albums on Ubiquity Records ‘Soulmates’ & ‘Pacific Drift’ were a hip-hop/cosmic jazz statement springing from early studio days and back alley freestyle sessions. Elvin Estela is also part of Savath & Savalas (Prefuse 73). The two tracks Nobody made for Aim-records are two psychedelic hip-hop tracks called ‘Tilijem’s Castle’ & ‘Tilijem’s Forest’. Both are instrumentals.

The Jukebox ~ a mythical beast of chrome, glass, motors, valves, and vinyl. The Jukebox is at times the life of the party, perhaps later in the evening becoming the instigator of seduction, or consoler of the lonely heart. Drop in a nickel and travel to other times, other dimensions. -AIM records
