Ells, aka Brian Ellsworth started his electronic music obsession in the late 90’s as the Northwest underground music scene was taking off. He would drive hundreds of miles up and down the West Coast to hear some beats, and show some moves on the dance floor. Soon after he started helping a local production company called Digital Dojo running visuals and making art decor. This sealed his love for spreading the underground music scene and linked him with a group of people that would help transform him into the artist he is today. From friends chasing beats to battling each other on the dance floor, Slipmat Science was born. Ells has been a solid member of Slipmat from the beginning. From making flyers and running visuals to booking venues he has done it all. In 2007 Slipmat Science started their own record store and this is where his love behind the tables began. Operating the store for weeks on end allowed him to hone his skills as a DJ and find his place in the music world.
From his dying love for Breakbeats and Funky Tech House to some contagious bohemian Mid-tempo and Bass music Ells will take you on a BPM journey. Playing events with many of todays greats and party rockin the club Ells is always down to make it Funky. 2012 holds a bright light for Ells as he revives his passion for producing music and turns up the heat with some dynamic sets behind the decks.
