Kill Emil is a DJ and producer based in Athens, Greece – by way of Brazil – who, since 2009, has created a healthy discography of potent beats and sublime atmospheres. With an early inspiration in hip hop, Kill Emil has been prolifically chopping up breaks on his MPC.
He laces hip hop-based beats with his own upbeat rhythms to go above and beyond typical looped downtempo sounds. His sound and his warm instrumentals border on otherwordliness has matured immensely while always staying headnoddingly fresh.
His most impressive releases to date have been his “Ghost Diary” LP which dropped back in May, and the “Salvation” LP from 2015, which solidified his esoteric and earthy sound.
