Elephante is on the prowl for his next fix on euphoric, hypnotizing new single “Dopamine,” which is out now.
Listen to “Dopamine” HERE.
Returning to his energetic House roots, Elephante weaves layered synths and floating vocals to create the pulsating track. Despite the risks, Elephante looks to quench his thirst for escape and pleasure.
”Dopamine” is about desire, about scratching the itch. It’s about wanting to experience the world at its fullest – driving 150 mph down the highway, chasing your lover across the dance floor, taking that last shot that you know you probably shouldn’t – whatever it takes to make you feel something.”
Elephante’s two previous releases “Holy Ghosts” and “High Water” share themes of self-reflection and despair. Detailing his personal experience during the pandemic and extending back to his younger years during his emotional, physical, and mental struggle with opioid addiction, Elephante is peeling back the layers of who he is as an artist and human to expose the dark depths of emotional valleys and the steep peaks of excitement.
Elephante is set to release his sophomore album Heavy Glow on October 22nd.
A wildly innovative producer, artist, and songwriter fusing melodic electronic dance music with pop, blues, rock, and other genres, Elephante (American musical artist Tim Wu) is living what many people might call “The American Dream”. As the son of Taiwanese immigrants, his Asian-American upbringing in Michigan was unique and sometimes isolating. He graduated from Harvard University and entered corporate America at a top global consultant firm….and HATED it, so he addressed his unhappiness — “the elephant in the room” — and pursued his passion in music. To date, he’s garnered hundreds of millions of streams across his two indie EPs: I Am The Elephante (2016), a nine-track exploration of progressive house, synthpop and trap; and Glass Mansion (2018), which shot to #1 on iTunes’ U.S. Dance chart. His upcoming project, Heavy Glow, represents his first full-length studio album, a largely solo effort further pushing the boundaries of dance music, featuring the debut single, “High Water.” Elephante has headlined two sold-out national tours, played nightlife residencies including those at Hard Rock and Wynn Las Vegas, and appeared at major music festivals such as Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, and Electric Zoo.
