Olf van Elden is Interstellar Funk, a young Dutch producer whose sound stands out because of its imperfections, its human warmth and its rough charm. Full of timeless melody that really makes you feel something, both his productions and his DJ sets are daring and thought provoking, always, marrying up new school sounds with the roots of house and techno, as well as dropping in the occasional new wave along the way.
His first head turning release came on Tom Trago’s Voyage Direct label and was swiftly and ably followed up by an impressive string of tracks on a number of Tape Records sampler EPs. It is here that he has proven his worth amongst a glut of fellow upcoming Dutch producers as the label is part of an Amsterdam collective renowned for its vibrant contributions to the alternative sides of local club culture
Interstellar Funk contributes to his native scene in many other ways, too, and not only as a former resident of the legendary Trouw club, but also thanks to his work for the Rush Hour family. As well as releasing a second new EP with the definitive label in 2015, he is also in charge of searching out new music for the label each and every week.
Interstellar Funk might only just be starting out on his musical journey, but already he has laid down some impressive ground work, both in the studio and in the club, and that is set to continue long into the future.
