Video: Elliphant f. Adam Kanyama, “Tekkno Scene”

April 24, 2012


In an interview in this month's Dazed & Confused, Stockholm's Ellinor Olovsdotter bka Elliphant says she began her music career by accident after drunkenly stumbling onstage in Goa and grabbing the microphone, delivering an impromptu performance that impressed an Indian band in the audience enough to bring her on a tour. Inspired by that borderline unbelievable experience, Olovsdotter set out to craft a proper solo career, and with "In the Jungle" and now "Tekkno Scene," her music has stayed just as gimme-that-shit bratty. The beat is a little goofy and the lyrics are hard to follow—at one point she sing-raps, Said like a busy bee from Bumbalee would suck this juice—but that's not even a criticism: the effect is a bit like psychological dissociation in the club, the experience made even more surreal by the song's concluding, Dallas Mavericks-referencing rap by Swedish teenager Adam Kanyama.
