Electric Elements is a 4 piece Hip Hop group based in Sydney.
Starting in 2008, the group’s founding members Pro MC (a.k.a Michael Provan) and deciBel (a.k.a Daniel Brown) began producing the bands’ unique blend of blues, funk and hip hop.
Gaining momentum after the release of their debut ‘The Demonstration’ in 2009 the band quickly followed with their next release ‘The Mix Tape Sampler’ in 2010, ushering in a new sound and introducing new members Blista (a.k.a Michael McCartney), K.Knoxx (a.k.a Sonny Piho) and Roxxy (a.k.a Rhonda Grant).
In 2011, following a stellar few years, the crew decided to show their support for the local Hip Hop scene by initiating the ‘Hand That MC A Mic’ platform which gives up and coming Hip Hop artists the opportunity to jump on stage in front of a sell out crowd and perform live with Electric Elements. Successful events in 2011 and 2012 were held at Sydney’s Brighton Up Bar to SOLD OUT crowds.
Towards the end of 2012 Electric Elements released their EP ‘No Place Like Home’. This project again ushered in a new era for Electric Elements with a new line-up and a more mature sound. The release saw the newest members of the band Louda (a.k.a Laura Manica Ribeiro) and The Hare (a.k.a Mark O’Hare) take over where Blista, K.Knoxx and Roxxy left off and gives an in-depth insight into the minds of Electric Elements. The album, featuring eight tracks, showcases the broad sound range, lyrical aptitude and energy of the crew and is a fun and exciting journey for the listener.
In early 2013 and in support of ‘No Place Like Home’ Electric Elements embarked on a four-date national tour alongside Adelaide based MC/Producer Koolta. The tour was a huge success which saw the crew perform to sold out crowds at a number of shows in major cities.
The crew work hard for their craft (and it shows) rewarding them with sell out shows and packed out venues throughout Australia. They have had the privilege of developing their live shows by sharing the stage with local and international artists such as: The Game (USA), Hopsin & SwizZz (USA), Pez, Chance Waters, Solo (Horrorshow), Purpose, Spit Syndicate, Koolta, Prime, Ry, Ozi Batla (The Herd), Tuka (Thundamentals), Joyride and Mind Over Matter.
“Electric Elements… unique, having live instruments give that authentic feel, something that’s not often done in Aussie Hip Hop. These guys have a great following and they really got the crowd moving.” – Li Lie Uncovered (Hopsin & SwizZz Australian Tour).
“What Electric Elements have here is the perfect debut. Even the artwork on the CD cover is eye catching and fits in well with the theme of the EP. If this is what Electric Elements call home, you’d better pull up a comfy chair and settle in because you’ll be here for a while. 9.5 Stars.” Beats Factory “ALBUM OF THE WEEK” – Album review.

The crew recently released their latest single ‘Smile’, produced by Zeed The Mantis, in conjunction with The Suicide Watch Project and Fallen Pony Music. The song was released on ‘The Suicide Watch Volume 2’ which aims at raising awareness for suicide prevention. Their best yet, this album has been well-received with the track receiving regular rotation on a number of radio stations around Australia including Triple J Unearthed.
As much as Hip Hop is a worldwide culture, one thing’s for sure – there’s no place like home.
