HE ELLAMENO BEAT TO RELEASE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, SURFACE, AUGUST 11TH, 2017 100% OF FIRST MONTH’S PROCEEDS TO BE DONATED TO MAULI OLA FOUNDATION
Surface on August 11th, 2017. This independent release marks a major step forward for the Florida-based surf enthusiasts. The Ellameno Beat is made up of band mastermind Reggie Froom, James Rosenblit (drums), Dylon Hixon(bass), Matt Diamond (trumpet/vocals), and Walker Brantingham (Keys.) Staying true to their mission of making the world a better place, the band will donate the first month of proceeds from Surface to the Mauli Ola Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing hope and confidence to individuals living with genetic diseases. Following 2015’s Party Wave EP, which put the band on the map climbing to #3 on iTunes Reggae Chart and #11 on the Billboard's, The Ellameno Beat were fortunate enough to being touring and experiencing the world outside the regular framework of the monotonous everyday. These experiences ignited a fire in the deeper realms of their inner-being. While Party Wave saw a young band focused around a theme of fun, Surface explores a universe of deep introspection and existentialism, which Froom promises is only the tip of the iceberg of things to come. “I like to think that it represents the surface of the ocean that is our massive repertoire of passionate content we are waiting to give to the world. It reinforces the notion that we are beginning this long journey with an honest commitment to see things through to the end.”
THE ELLAMENO BEAT FLEX THEIR RANGE OF STYLES IN “ONE OF US”
SECOND SINGLE OFF UPCOMING ALBUM, SURFACE, PREMIERES ON HUFFINGTON POS
Following the massive splash of their single “Muse” over at Rootfire, The Ellameno Beat have dropped their second single, “One of Us” via Huffington Post. The heady funk/disco/reggae hybrid song gives fans a taste of what to expect in the upcoming release Surface, due out August 11th. The track possesses lyrics full of personal meaning to lead singer Reggie Froom, who describes the track as “an invitation to shed the weight of insecurity, and just be.” Lyrically, “One Of Us” serves as a reflection of the culmination of Froom’s emotional and psychological states at the time the song was written. The cadence of the track blossomed from Froom’s willingness to fully immerse and dedicate himself into a synergic relationship where two people willingly become one.
This past week we sat down with Reggie the lead singer of The Ellameno Beat and talked about their new album Surface, their first single Muse and their upcoming Summer Tour. The Ellameno Beat will be playing in NYC at Silvana this Friday 6/23, so make sure you check them out.
The Ellameno Beat have released their first single off their upcoming album Surface, due out in August. The spacey dub-infused track features heavy bass, air-tight drumming and memorable vocal and synth melodies. The single was premiered at Rootfire, the trendsetting lifestyle blog, and can be found here.
The creative process always seems to be a topic of interest. Whether it’s the aspiring artist, or the curious fan, the method behind the execution is routinely discussed. Some songs are years in the making, while others happen overnight. While some people rely on certain routines and structures, inspiration tends to come and go of its own accord. Such is the case with the fittingly titled “Muse,” a track created in one overnight meditative haze.
