Ekali is a Canadian instrumentalist and producer from Vancouver, BC. He started making electronic music in 2014, and since has been making big waves in the electronic community; from his visceral, captivating original work and collaborations to his thundering club remixes.

Ekali was accepted as Canada’s sole participant in the Red Bull Music Academy in 2014. Since then, he’s gone on to receive over twenty million streams, toured every corner of the world & received a writing credit on Drake’s “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.” His unique sound has earned him a loyal following worldwide, and cemented him as one of electronic music’s most promising artists.

In 2016, Ekali was tapped for an official remix of Flume’s “Smoke & Retribution feat. Vince Staples & Ku?ka,” and his Flux Pavilion “I Can’t Stop” remix was officially signed and released by Big Beat. Ekali was also recently featured as a new & developing artist in HITS magazine.

Over the summer of 2016, Ekali released a much-anticipated official collaborative remix with Gravez of Jack Ü’s “Mind (feat. Kai).” This was quickly followed up by an official remix on Australian label Future Classic for Ta-ku & Wafia’s “Meet In The Middle” single.
At the young age of 7, MORiLLO first stepped into the world of making music by sitting down behind a set of drums, and discovering his passion for creating infectiously captivating beats. Fast forward 20 years, and MORiLLO has produced for and performed live with multiple international artists such as Rhye and Childish Gambino. All this, while carefully plotting to take over the world, by bringing his own productions to big stages across the globe.

With his debut solo project, 'MORiLLO', he has begun to deeply immerse himself into the world of electronic music, through his own bass heavy productions. Perfect for big festival stages or intimate club dance floors, MORiLLO's productions can be described as bass-music, influenced by a blend of hip hop, dub, and world music. Through his live performances, MORiLLO strives to create a globe-spanning, rhythm- and-bass fueled dance party that will leave his audiences in an elevated state of euphoric bliss.

Since launching his solo act in 2014, he has been instantly embraced by the bass music scene, with support from the likes of Muti Music, and Play Me Records, and has been invited to perform at many of the most prestigious gatherings like Lightning in a Bottle, Coachella, Shambhala, Lucidity, Symbiosis, and Enchanted Forest.
