The Blue Elephant (aka DJ TBE).
Montreal-based Producer and DJ of Russian origin, The Blue Elephant, is poised to become one of the hottest newcomers to the Canadian electronic music scene in recent years….however…before you ask, no, no one knows where the alias The Blue Elephant came from. Legend has it that it could be a symbolic representation of post-life re-incarnation into the loudest animal on the planet, which would certainly pay homage to the party hits this producer releases! However, what is absolutely certain is that The Blue Elephant is a visionary Producer and DJ and one to watch out for in 2016 and beyond!

The Blue Elephant is known for fusing melodic chord progressions and soothing pads with thumping bass and unforgettable kicks, and for mixing elements from various genres of music in his tracks, borrowing heavily from anything and everything that inspires him: from contemporary pop icons to cutting edge musicians in the Dance, House, Progressive, Trance and Hip Hop scenes.
Furthermore, collaborating with various artists globally has allowed The Blue Elephant to release music in a wide variety of genres. Gratifyingly, however, The Blue Elephant’s style is still recognizably eclectic regardless of whether he is working on the next Electronic Caribbean Music roof-top party starter or a festival geared Progressive House mix. To that end, The Blue Elephant definitely has all the bases covered with tracks ranging from laying on a hammock chilled, to in the middle of a rave upbeat!
The Blue Elephant currently releases with Austria-based Paranoja Records, Toronto-based Play Records and independently worldwide. Watch out for The Blue Elephant’s upcoming collaborations and releases on Beatport, iTunes as well as other leading online retailers and in clubs around the world.
