Elevven (Shahin and Swapneel) took the progressive and trance scene by storm after their remix of Gabriel & Dresden’s “You” was named Above & Beyond’s top track of 2018 in DJ Mag. Since then, the LA-based duo have released tracks on major labels like Armada and Anjunabeats. Having released their first single ten years ago on Silk Music, Elevven made their Monstercat debut today with the uplifting new single, “Vivi.” The track is inspired by their tight-knit community that especially came together during the pandemic. Overall “Vivi” was written as a tribute to them for their continued support and dedication. Also a nod to the double “v” in their name.
“The song title was initially suggested by a member of our community, with “Vivi” being a reference to the Elevven follow-up to Shahin’s “Mimi,” as well as a play on the VV in our name. We could not think of a better way to celebrate and pay tribute to our incredible family that has kept us sane over the past year. They’ve joined us in our streams, at our live events, during our Monstercat Silk Sessions, and now they’ve named one of our records. This one is for them. A huge thank you to Monstercat and Silk Music – or should we say – Monstercat Silk!” – Elevven
As a successor to Shahin’s “Mimi,” the track’s bright synth leads, deep piano chords, and warm atmospheric pads instill feelings of nostalgia, reminding listeners of Elevven’s melodic progressive roots. After debuting “Vivi” at their first post-pandemic sold-out show at Public Works, one can only look forward to their next live shows to hear this stellar track live.
