Elliot Carter, known to Soulful House music fans as DJ Elliot Carter, is a DJ specialising in soulful, vocal, funky, gospel and jackin’ house. For the past 3 years, Elliot has been making a name for himself in the house music scene, holding monthly residencies at two East Anglia, UK, bars; playing various soulful house gigs; producing his own events with prominent names in the scene, and even playing for Paul “Trouble” Anderson in Camden, London.
Born and bred in Cambridge, UK, music played a big part in Elliot’s life from a young age. His parents surrounded him with all types of soul music, and his older brothers’ love for garage music spurred Elliot’s own passion for the genre. His musical upbringing evolved into Elliot’s love for all things soul, funk, house, garage & disco.
Elliot’s DJ career began 3 years ago when he transitioned from just collecting the music he loved to creating mixes for his own enjoyment. With encouragement from friends and family, he then put a few skillfully mixed sets online. Music fans took notice, and Elliot quickly started getting booked for local gigs.
Elliot plays a wide variety of music including a lot of old soul from way before his time, but his main true love is soulful house. He says, “I don’t do this because I have to or to earn a living. I do it because I love the music and want to share the music I love with other people.”
