Eli Fola Shares New Audio/Visual Ode To Jeff Mills, 'The Healer,' On IMPOSE

Nigerian born/bred DJ, producer, vocalist, and saxophonist Eli Fola has forged an incredible mix of experimental Jazz, AfroBeat, Electronic and Deep House during his now seven year stint as a Brooklynite. The unique sound he calls 'Tech Afrique,' which is also the same name of his newly launched label, serves as the foundation for Eli's debut EP The Platform (out now on SpotifyiTunes, etc.).   

"The Healer" is the fourth track on the project, but the third of what is to be a seven part video series of each song from The Platform.

The video was made by a French artist named Maxime Hacquard, I saw his work through Instagram and reached out to him to make my video, so the creation of the video was basically done online, I never met him before. I just gave him my ideas, and we work like that. ‘The Healer’ [track] was inspired by one of my favorite Techno DJ/Producer Jeff Mills from Detroit. I have been following his work for a while now. While working on my EP I wanted to make a sound that is very futuristic and somewhat different from the rest of the tracks and I think ‘The Healer’ is a perfect example of that.
