SONG OF THE DAY Elite Beat – Nook Lyfe


Elite Beat are an experimental 6-piece from Portland whose sound is inspired by music from around the globe!

Coming together nearly a decade ago, Elite Beat have perfected the art of creating a live sound that is heavily based on rhythm…and, as I always bang on (get it), I’m a sucker for a good rhythm!  Rooted by powerful melodic basslines and percussion-driven polyrhythms, their ecstatic horn and guitar fuelled compositions merge seamlessly with layers of electrified dub.

Today’s song is an instrumental track entitled Nook Lyfe and features on the band’s Casual Rhythms Vol 2 which was released back in 2016, a year after Volume 1 was released; both via Boomarm Nation.  It’s a nice, easy listen with a mellow feel, fusing some nice little breaks, punchy rhythms and chilled out melodic horns..Check it out above.
