This week we team up with Elinov, the dynamic house DJ based in the Netherlands who fuses electro and vocals into his music made for big sound systems. The pandemic over the last year has meant no gigs and no travelling, so many artists have had time to get creative away from DJing in nightclubs or at festivals. We spoke with Elinov to find out more about his creative process, having more time to make tunes and find inspiration elsewhere.
