Jellis


Read the Jellis Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hey Guys! My name is Josh Ellis and I produce electronic music (Ambient/Experimental) under the alias 'Jellis'. I'm 22 years old and currently live in Wales (UK). My music typically consists of immersive soundscapes accompanied with evocative piano melodies and warm, textured beats. Music has always been a big part of my life, however during my earlier years I was only exposed to classical music. When I was 7 I began learning to play the trumpet and throughout my school education played in many bands, whilst also studying music theory and learning to play drums & piano. When I was 18 I moved to Surrey (England) and studied Creative Music Technology for 3 years graduating with a First Class Honours Degree (BMus). It was during my time in university that my love and passion for electronic music was ignited and I haven't stopped making music since. With the 'Jellis' project now entering its third year, I have received support from BBC Introducing, Cafe Del Mar, MrSuicideSheep, Nourish, Fluidified, Ambientmusicalgenre & many others. I'm very thankful for all the love and support I have had over the last few years, it means so much and I can't express my gratitude enough.

Thank you ?


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I would say my main influence is nature. I love walking along the coast and around national parks, photographing what I see. I especially love forests and waterfalls. In this environment is where I get most inspired! I often record the sounds I hear and later manipulate these recordings into percussive and textural loops. In terms of musical influences, there are many. As I mentioned previously, up to the age of 16/17 I predominantly played & listened to classical music. When I was 17 I then also played in a Big Band Orchestra for 2 years and this exposed me to the world of Jazz. During my time in university I was exposed to so many different types of music. From World music, to Gospel, Soul, Avant Garde, Soundscape Composition, UK Bass, Live Electronics, Pop, Music for TV & Film…. there are certainly too many to list. However the following artists have had a big impact on my musical journey, and when listening I am always encouraged and inspired to write music! They are Subsets, Alicks, Aether, Azaleh, Soular Order, Bonobo, Kiasmos, Nils Frahm, Joep Beving & Enzalla. There are many more I could list but I would definitely recommend listening to these guys!


What´s new right now?


I'm currently working on lots of new music! I have a collaborative EP in the works which will be released sometime in 2018 & am also uploading music to my Soundcloud & Spotify on a regular basis. I will also be releasing a solo EP this year. For regular updates follow me on Facebook & Youtube:
