Elohim begins rolling out her four-part EP series with introspective ‘Journey To The Center Of Myself Vol. 1’
Recently named one of Conscious Electronic‘s EDM’s Top Vocalists during Women’s Month, Elohim has returned with the first of a four-volume set of EPs, titled Journey To The Center Of Myself. Interconnected, yet distinct on their own, the four-part EP series release now begins with each piece rolling out over the next year. Volume 1 also includes previously released single “STRUT,” featuring bounce rapper Big Freedia, which MTV hailed as “an instant classic.”
Described by Elohim as the beginning of her passage to self-discovery, Journey to the Center of Myself covers serious ground with its brooding collection of electronic cuts. An unpredictable combination of alt-pop and bass boosted house, Elohim continues to push the boundaries of electronic music by embracing her vulnerable side.
“I have grown so much since I became Elohim. It has been a journey mentally, emotionally, and physically,” the vocal powerhouse says on her project in a press release. “There are so many questions I find myself asking: Who am I? What am I? Where am I going? How did we get here? Each of these volumes was and is a way for me to explore things I didn’t and don’t have an answer to.” She continues,
“Journey to the Center of Myself is much like a labyrinth. The intention of a labyrinth is to heal your mind by following the spiral path without averting your eyes. Ultimately, what you experience is a short reprieve from the chaos of decision-making as your mind is allowed to wander because there is no left or right, only a line that you know will lead you to the center and then back out again at whatever pace you choose. Johns Hopkins actually created one in Baltimore as a spiritual service for patients and their families to discover peace during trying times. This project was exactly that for me: it was a way for me to find peace in self-discovery.”– Elohim
Elohim’s journey has not been easy, but forging fearlessly through challenges, her story is one of resilience. In the half-decade sinceElohimreleased her first single, she’s grown from the shy and enigmatic woman who hid her face, into a woman who’s proud of conquering her fears and making the music she wants, on her own terms. Elohim says of how bad things became with her mental health on the heels of her newfound success as an artist in the early days:
