A DJ and producer not to be put in a box, Elle Stilnovo (born Eleonora Cutaia) expresses in her music lifelong influences of Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz, 80s Synth-Pop, Trip Hop, Avant Garde Electronica, House, Techno and everything in between.
First making her mark in 2006 with the compilation “Underground Soul” on Expansion Records, soon Elle went on to DJ at some of best venues - from underground clubs (Fabric, Pacha, Egg, Supperclub) to exclusive celebrity and corporate events (Whisky Mist VIP Room; parties for Matt Damon and former MP Tony Blair).
As a DJ, Elle has carved a niche for herself and has taken her eclectic sets worldwide in Europe, USA and Asia - sharing the stage with a myriad of international artists, including King Britt, Vikter Duplaix, Atjazz and Ben Westbeech. On the airwaves, Elle’s work can be heard on several stations across the globe, such as BBC Radio 1, Ibiza Global Radio and more.
An ambassador for Pioneer DJ, in 2009 Elle was handpicked to present the CDJ2000, and recently featured in a new commercial for the brand.
In 2006 Eleonora founds the promo pool AheadPR, today one of the most popular international promo outlets in the world - whilst 2 years later she starts her own label, Stilnovo Music to release quality Electronica and House with a Deep and Soulful twist.
Her passion for A&R, and her ear for discovering new talent leads to critically acclaimed underground and crossover releases from respected US and UK artists Rogiers (Alicia Keys, Bilal, Platinum Pied Pipers), Sun Singleton (vocalist for Q-Tip and Thundercat) and Atjazz among others.
After several remixes for other artists, 2013 sees the release of Elle’s first single “Press Play” (featuring Rise Ashen and Jaidene Veda). A slice of bass-infused electronic soul, “Press Play” was picked up by Roger Sanchez for his 2013 number 1 compilation “Release Yourself” and featured in the latest Pioneer commercial.
This is only a taster of what’s to come, as Elle continues to work with some of the UK and US’ most talented and innovative artists and gears up for releasing her debut album later this year.
