Eli & Fur are a DJ and electronic music producer duo comprising Eliza Noble and Jennifer Skillman, hailing from London. Eli & Fur have been working together since they were in their teens. The group has a background in songwriting and while they started out in DJ music, they are moving into live acts using Ableton software. Instead of mixing other tracks, Eli & Fur write and play their own tracks, which creates a sound that is “distinctly electronic, mixing house and dance beats.”

Melodic House has seen a huge surge in popularity over the past few years, thanks to artists such as Ben Böhmer, Lane 8 and Eli & Fur. The record label that is most associated with the genre is Anjunadeep.
