Beats no matter how harsh or tasty made them tick and before long they were uniting their skills to produce their acclaimed 2005 debut “Elementz Universe Volume 1”. Termed one of the strongest Hip Hop records of the year it gained massive support from 1Xtra, Kiss and Galaxy earning them a prize feature on the legendary DJ Skitz compilation LP Homegrown. As the snowball effect gained momentum, more and more names collided with their sound. Scorzayzee, Taskforce, and Skinnyman to name but a few let The Elementz take their sound to another galaxy.
2006 saw “Elementz Universe Volume 2” impact upon the urban landscape and it wasn’t long before the airwaves became full of their unique sound enjoying blanket play from the whole 1Xtra Hip Hop roster including Rodney P & Skitz, Ras Kwame and Twin B. The joint reached the heights of ‘Record of the Week’ on 1Xtra, spent six weeks at the summit of Itch FM’s Hip Hop chart and was exclusively chopped and remixed by the two for Bobby Friction on BBC Asian Networks acclaimed Reproduced program broadcast live to 500,000 people worldwide. 2007 saw The Elementz readying their 1st “proper” studio command centre aptly dubbed The Elementz Universe. They regularly cut tracks for artists such as Shameless, Ghetto & Lewi White aside recording a vast array of artists from psychedelic rockers right though to Gospel Diva’s.
In 2007 The Elementz became record producers in their own right. Maybe this is why BBC 1Xtra and MTV Base approached them to create an exclusive cut for their celebrated Black History Month feature broadcasted to millions worldwide and downloaded free on their BBC website. The Elementz prowess comes with being greater than the sum of their parts, Zoutr’s instrumentation skills and live music background coupled with Liati’s “throw down” production attitude and engineers ear make for an explosive and unpredictable sound. Their combination of styles and far-reaching influence shows that with their eagerly anticipated compilation LP “Crushmode” the pair can go supernova.
