Celebrate Life! is the latest release from Toronto-based beat-maker and producer Elaquent released on URBNET—yep, that's the same label as Career Crooks and PremRock & Fresh Kils—in digital, cassette, and vinyl formats. Elaquent's production work throughout Celebrate Life!, assisted by K, Le Maestro & DIBIA$E, has a quality similar to that of J Dilla's Ruff Draft EP (2003) as well as the Electronic/Jazz-Fusion sound of both Flying Lotus and Thundercat. Elaquent has previously worked with the likes of Moka Only, Thesaurus Rex, Iman Omari, O-Phrap, and Budamonk. He readily cites his greatest sources of influence as J Dilla, Madlib, Flying Lotus, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, DIBIA$E, Afta-1, Hi-Tek, Samiyam, Mndsgn, and Knxwledge. "Life sucks sometimes. With all the depressing things that happen throughout the world—to people you know, to yourself, even—it's important to take a moment and appreciate the beautiful things the world has to offer, to prevent from going crazy. Stay positive, celebrate life," Elaquent said on the running theme through Celebrate Life!
