Elson is a fingerstyle acoustic guitarist and songwriter from Spain. His mission: melting the boundaries between Spanish guitar, Folk, Blues and Klezmer music, as well as between acoustic and electronic music.
Acid Ted on his blog of the same name about VESTIGES: "It’s Spanish guitar but VESTIGES by Elson Complex has a structure I’d more associate with electronic music. The repeated phrases act almost like beats or percussion. It ends up with something that really approaches drone in the way that it’s constantly circling back on itself. Like a echo coming back again and again. But with enough finger-style melody to give it an extra layer that lifts it up and up. Wonderful."
Since April 2019, his acoustic guitar tunes MANZANERA, LANGUAGES, VESTIGES and MANZANERA BLUES have gradually been included by artists/labels/listeners in over 80 playlists on Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer (see below). Next track BLEND is releasing Nov 8, and track STRAIN Nov 22.
