Idris Elba drops new track and gets added to Eastern Electrics
Idris Elba seems to be a man of many talents and a real hustler. Before making it big as an actor in favorites like The Wire, Mandela and Prometheus he was deep into house music by DJ names like DJ Dris and Big Driis as we notice in the documentary Idris Elba: How Clubbing changed the world. He’s remixed for The Jungle Book soundtrack, he’s rapped on a Skepta track and now he’s given us the first single off of his new major music project, Hiatus.
The song, “Spectacle,” is a real house track NOT an EDM track as we could have expected by a person at this level of fame but Idris stay true to his background and give a tribal stomper that features Elba’s instantly-recognisable snarl backed with fruity riffs and stabby percussion. Edited by non-other then the radio pioneer Pete Tong.
Eastern Electrics festival in the UK recently announced they have added Idris to their line-up. If your in UK around 6th of August make sure to visit Eastern Electrics.
