BSWC One-a-Day: his boy elroy - Noite de Carnaval (hbe's cinematrik soundscape)

We'll bring it back to the U.S. for this Saturday post.

Tim Holt is from Franklin, Tennessee and performs under the name his boy elroy. He has posted some of his work at ccMixter.org and has a website. According to his MySpace page he began the his boy elroy concept in 1995 with a friend.

At first the idea was a techno band, but his friend went off to other projects, Tim went to college and things were put on hold, but then 2005 rolled around and the power of CC licensing and the internet were in full swing:
"fast forward to 2005. after writing themes for national radio shows, soundtracks and corporate videos, tim resurrected his boy elroy and set his sights on making creative electronic music full-time. he quickly won the "fine art of sampling" contest sponsored by wired magazine and the creative commons."
That winning ccMixter piece was a remix called Revolve. He also has an excellent remix of Lisa Debenedictis and her song Cuckoo (it was a winner in the ccMixter Magnatune Contest).

The piece that I have selected was from the Crammed Discs competition and features the vocals of Cibelle.
