Rapid-rising violinist, producer, curator, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Elle Shimada drops brand new single.
Tokyo-born, Melbourne-based Elle Shimada showcases a bold exploration of sound and emotion within her latest release. Combining elements of Drum n Bass, textured soundscapes, and emotive cinematic compositions, “ABOUT BLANK ____” delivers a powerful and unique sound highlighting Shimada’s innate ability in crafting some of the most exciting, genre-bending music in today’s electronic scene.
The lyrics, featuring vocalist Rara Zulu, offer a raw and honest experience into the journey of strong, independent women as they deftly navigate their vulnerability and emotions. A subject matter that is both relatable and challenging, Shimada’s delivery is a strong testament to her unique ability in capturing human experience through music.

Already clocking a legendary HÖR Berlin mix last year, Shimada is set to garner huge interest over the rest of 2023 supporting heavyweight names such as Alfa Mist, Liv.e, Obonjayar and Flying Lotus.
