Elucidate is a trance duo based in the US. The Elucidate DJ and record producer team is made up of Ken Loi and Sean Beckwith.[2] Since 2005 they have produced and performed together, releasing numerous trance songs and remixes on a wide variety of labels.

History[edit]

In 2005 Elucidate released their Lucid Dream Red Mix on Digitally Imported Radio which was the first of a large series of mixes known as the Lucid Dream Mix series.[3] In 2006 Elucidate started their radio show, Deep In Vocal Euphoria (DIVE Radio),[4] which also premiered on Digitally Imported, and was later syndicated on several other radio stations. As popularity of the Lucid Dream Mixes and DIVE radio shows grew, Elucidate began remixing for several trance labels and in 2007 released their first remixes.[5]

Near the end of 2007, Elucidate produced a bootleg remix of the trance classic "Skydive". Their remix of "Skydive" achieved major support from many of the world's biggest DJ's including Ferry Corsten,[6] and propelled them into the forefront of the mainstream trance scene. After releasing their "Skydive" remix, Elucidate put out over 20 productions in 2008 and 2009 including originals and remixes[1] on several major trance record labels including Bonzai,[7] Alter Ego,[1] Neuroscience,[8] and Perfecto.[1]

Style[edit]

The musical style produced and performed by Elucidate is a sub genre of electronica, known as trance music. Although many people associate trance with non-vocal instrumental songs,[9] Elucidate songs and mixes typically contain chilling vocals.[10] The style of music created by Elucidate is normally made using synthesizers, virtual studio technology instruments, and digital audio workstations. Elucidate songs include synth pads, lush strings, and driving beats,[11][12] typifying the typical production sound found in modern trance music.[9]
