Living between Boston and Spain, he works with clients and artists from around the globe and credits his career as a DJ and studio engineer towards his early years of training since age five on classical violin and in music theory.

In 2008, Ell became the Co-Host of the Midwest’s longest running Hip-Hop radio show “The Prop Shop” on WCBN-FM Ann Arbor with host DJ Chill Will. He considered Ell a “musical, rhythmic prodigy”.
