From the age of 8 years old, Elekid has been completely submerged in electronic dance music. What started out simply listening to Techno and House jams on Chicago's B96, soon became somewhat of an obsessive compulsive disorder with recording late night mixes by Bobby D., and hitting up local record stores such as Jumpin' Muzik and Hip House for bootleg House cassette tapes. In 1997, Elekid took the next and obvious leap of getting involved with DJing. As Chicago Hard House evolved, so did his taste in electronic music. He would go on to add many different genres to his arsenal of tracks such as Hard Trance, Breaks, Jump/Tekstyle, Tech Dance, Hard Dance, Hard Techno/Schranz, and virtually the entire genre of Hardcore. Skipping ahead to 2005, Elekid begins produce and sets off to do what he only dreamt about as a kid. In 2007, his track, Tekno Drugs, became a widely requested tune by his American Hard House peers and other Hard Dance DJs across the country, but would not get an official release until December of 2010. Here we are in 2013, and in the last 15 years, Elekid has become a household name in the United States across all hard electronic music boards. He has played for and amazed countless crowds across America, at a staggering number of events, and has been picked up by two record labels, SoCalConnect Music (LA), and Noise Complaint Records (MN). You can check out Elekid's releases on junodownload.com, beatport.com, and many other digital music sites! If it's hard, it's Elekid.
A growing name in the Chicago underground scene and in the city, Konrad Kordylasinski AKA Cyberbully is wrecking dance floors left and right.
