||Low End Theory resident & veteran Los Angeles DJ Nobody creates
the crucially timed full-length Vivid Green via Alpha Pup Records.
Embracing the flux within LA underground musical movements of
the last fifteen years, Elvin Estela has been on the studio grind while
touring internationally refining chops in bass heavy beats, electronic
bangers and psychedelic rock.
Since debuting with one of Los Angeles’ first instrumental hip-hop
full lengths with 2000’s Soulmates, Estela has gone on to remain
relevant within the shape-shifting scenes of LA’s multicultural
artistic climate. Nobody utilizes the same signature mood, melody,
and diversity that identified him in 2000, but with an unmistakable
modern upgrade - no doubt influenced by Low End Theory, the club
he co-founded in 2006. Vivid Green is expanding on the repertoire
that has kept Nobody standing as a strong symbol for open ears.
Vivid Green is strongly instrumental, but boasts the vocal
collaborations of The Mars Volta’s Cedric Bixler-Zavala, electronic
songwriter Baths, laid-back SoCal rapper Nocando, freak-soul
Kendrick Lamar collaborator Anna Wise (Sonnymoon), and Teri
Gender Bender of Les Butcherettes/Bosnian Rainbows.
