Compared to indulgences like martinis and massage tables, and artists like Bjork, Lenny Kravitz, Lisa Stansfield and Sade, Hot Sauce Records owner ellee ven describes her own brand of pop, rock, and electronica as "groovetonics."
Her latest release is a potent fusion of dance jams and ballads created by handpicked producers including superstar turntablist DJ SWAMP (Beck''s DJ from 1996-2000 and contributor to albums by Kid Rock, The Crystal Method & Morcheeba), Antony Lee, & Reggie Dozier (Outkast, Shelby Lynne, Justin Timberlake, & Kenny Rogers). The result is her album FUNKY BOHEMIA and it promises to be ellee ven''s ticket to the mainstream.
Soon after receiving a Master''s Degree in Education a "moment of clarity" spurred her to start Hot Sauce Records in 2000, her Hollywood based independent label. "Nobody can change yesterday, but everybody can start today and change tomorrow."
ellee ven''s decision to put down her thesis and pick up a microphone proved to be the right decision. Funky Bohemia''s first single Under My Skin is already being played on radio stations worldwide and in retail outlets such as Adidas, Abercrombie and Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger and Saks Fifth Avenue. ellee ven''s videos have recently been added to Canadian video channels MuchMusic and BPM TV and she is looking forward to gracing the cover of Unsigned Artists in June.
Building on her mantra that anyone can make a difference though art, she sponsors the annual "Give Into The Groove"; an event enjoying increasing success. "I always wanted to do something for others through artistic expression," says ellee ven. "Art has the power to really influence people''s lives." This years Give Into the Groove will be held at the beautiful historic El Rey Theatre on November 10th. All proceeds from the 4th annual Give Into the Groove will benefit the Los Angeles chapter of the American Red Cross.
ellee ven''s newest project "Project 11", is a compilation of her alt electronica tracks remixed by up-and-coming /award winning producers. Volume 1 will be in stores July 5th, 2005 and the remaining remixes will be scheduled for release every eight weeks for an indefinite period of time.
