With over 10 years in the game and over 20 releases, Sona Elango, better known as Elaquent has seen it all since his debut. Inspired by the likes of DJ Premier, J Dilla and Pete rock, the Guelph, Ontario producer has strived to make his own mark in the instrumental hip hop community, sampling everything from Patrice Rushen, to Sega Genesis games. Since his first release in 2008, a beat tape called "In Colour Vol. 1", Elaquent, has been making his mark on the independent beat scene compiling a deep discography of well received instrumental albums, as well as collaborative works with a number or rappers and singers. Producing a number of critically acclaimed releases, including “Good Karma” , “Worst Case Scenario”, and most recently, "Celebrate Life!", Elaquent's passion for creating vibe-out songs has also translated into live performances, as he has traveled around the world, playing for beat heads. With a number of upcoming collaborations and releases currently in the works, the prolific producer shows no signs of slowing down..
